    Orcad 16.6 15053 error Reply

    Hello all,

    I've have downloaded and installed ORCAD 16.6 Lite but I get the following error when I start a PSPICE simulation:

       "ERROR(15053): Can not initialize PSpice UI" 

    Does anyone know why this happens and how to solve it?

    I believe you are trying to run PSpice simulation from Capture. Can you try running PSpice from Start menu first and then again try starting PSpice simulation?

    Couple of things you could try...

    a) Please check you Path variable does not exceed 2048 - see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2685893

    b) If you had this problem after running installer (other than Cadence installer) - you may want to reboot your machine and check if problem goes away. Some installers incorrectly change the windows Path to non-expandable which causes issues as CDSROOT variable stops expanding in Path variable. Windows OS corrects this error on reboot automatically.

    One way to check if the problems are being caused from above issues is to open a command window (cmd.exe), run capture.exe from it and see if you are able to invoke the tool.

    I see the same problem. I did an uninstall and reinstalled the software again, but that did not help. I tried the steps mentioned above, but that did not help (invoking from CMD, etc).

    Were you able to resolve the problem?

    I've got the same issue. Built a simple AC-circuit, simulated, changed the phase shifts, and BAM - encountered this same error that you guys have/had.

    Tried everything:
    Re-install
    Uninstall
    Overinstall
    Clean sweep uninstall with REVO Uninstaller
    Rebooting
    Made up 240 GB of free space on the HDD
    Limited autostarting applications
    Cleaned up background running applications
    Install as admin
    Run as admin
    Hotfix for that 2047 variables-yadiyadiyada

    Running 64-bit Win7 on a DELL Studio XPS.

    Can't even start pspice.exe by itself. Getting that error popup that can be seen in my image.

    Can you try invoking PSpice directly from start menu and see if that comes up? This would give us some clue about the issue at your end, is it design specific or a generic one?

    Just in case you get same problem on invoking the PSpice from start menu also, can you try renaming the %HOME%/CDSSETUP directory and then try invoking PSpice from start menu.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi there,

     I have the same issue under Windows XP SP3 and I find out that I can't invoke pspice from the start menu. You rename %HOME%/CDSSETUP  to what ? I found the variable in the windows system variables but also in some Orcad ini files too. Orcad was installed in a virtual partition D:\ and the %HOME%/CDSSETUP  points to the right place that is D:\Windows Section\OrCAD_16.6_Lite which is the installation folder I choose when installing Orcad so everything seems to be correct for me and there is only one user account on my computer.

    I have uninstalled it and reinstalled it in the default directory C:\OrCAD\OrCAD_16.6_Lite\ and it is the same problem

    OrCAD Capture CIS Lite -> no problem 

    Magnetic Parts Editor    -> no problem 

    Model Editor                 -> error message: This application has quit unexpectedly. To help Cadence detect and analyse the problem archive the current project...

    Simulation Manager       -> no problem

    Stimulus Editor              -> error message: This application has quit unexpectedly. To help Cadence detect and analyse the problem archive the current project...

    PSpice Advanced Analysis Lite -> no problem

    PSpice AD Lite -> nothing happen !

    Any ideas !

    Thank you, bye.
