    License issue while using plot command in an ocean script in cadence 6.1.5 Reply
    when I am using plot() command in my ocean script in cadence version 6.1.5 it is checking for ADE_L/ADE_XL license,but when I am using the same command in cadence version 5.1.4, it is showing no such message & is excuting the command. Can anyone suggest what the problem might be?

    I don't know which licenses you have, but presumably it is working but just giving some warnings?

    If so, adding:

    envSetVal("wavescan.application" "VIVALicenseCheckoutOrder" 'string "ADE,VIVA")  ; default is VIVA,ADE
    envSetVal("license" "ADELicenseCheckoutOrder"  'string "GXL,L,XL") ; default is L,XL,GXL

    might help. I'm assuming here you have ADE GXL licenses and not the others. The idea is that these control the default order it checks for licenses - and you can tune that to the licenses you actually have. 

    Seeing the message you're getting might help me to give a better answer, along with knowledge of what ADE licenses you actually have. 

    Regards,

    Andrew.

    Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for your reply.

    First of all, I don't have any ADE license (I have only Virtuoso_Schematic,111 & Spectre licences).

    But my question is how am I able to run this same command in 5.1.4 version ?

    Manually I am able to plot all the results (in 6.1.5 version) but it is a big simulation & I need to automate few things, that's why the script.

     

    In 6.1.5 it gives the following warnings when I try to access spectre results through any ocean commands :

    I don't know how you ever got it to work in the past. OCEAN has always required an ADE license - it's essentially part of ADE.

    Historically wavescan could be run with just a spectre license (this was mainly intended for MDL mode), but in IC615 ViVA always requires either a ViVA-XL license or an ADE license. So I've no idea how you've managed to plot manually in IC615, let alone how you plotted from OCEAN in IC5141 (maybe you're using a really old IC5141 build that had a loophole in the license checking?)

    Regards,

    Andrew.
