I saw that TI now has PSpice for TI and immediately requested access and installed it on my PC. My company insists on having separate Windows user accounts for regular work and admin rights, so when the I started the installation I was asked for credentials and used my admin account. The installation finished without errors, but there are no shortcuts or start menu entries for my regular user account.
Could you please look into this and check that the software gets installed for all users?
But, more importantly, how can I start the software "by hand"? What do the normal shortcuts or menu entries look like?
Thank you for your post and your interest in Pspice for TI.
I will have to check with the Pspice for TI vendor and get their feedback, probably by early next week.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

In reply to John Miller - CAE/Modeling:
To answer your question about "by hand", there are 2 shortcuts created for these 2 exe files in your installation:
They are created under %APPDATA\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\PSpice for TI 2020.
In reply to JC Zhu - Simulation with PSpice:
Did the 2 shortcuts for "by hand" allow you to start the tool?
Also, would you please zip the files in the folder %APPDATA%\Cadence\PspiceforTIInstall\ into a single folder
- with the exception of TIPSpice.exe and cdsVbl.dll - and attach it to this thread?
The zipped folder will be forwarded to the Pspice for TI vendor for their review and feedback.
yes and no. Thank you JC for the advice!
I was able to get the link, but I can only run it as an admin. Otherwise I get a licensing error (LMC-02995), even though I copied everything from myadminaccount\AppData\Roaming\Cadence\... to my regularaccount\AppData\...
I think I uploaded the zip-file you asked for, although it was in %APPDATA%\Roaming\Cadence\...
Please let me know if you need further infos.
In reply to Ferdinand Grossmann:
Thank you Ferdinand.
I will forward the attachment to the Pspice for TI vendor for their feedback. There should be an update to this thread in 2-3 days.
A couple of questions:
1. Is the issue that you have installed the tool, and after installation you are not able to see the tool entry in Windows programs?
2. Do you see a folder at C:/Cadence/PSpiceTI, and is there a bin folder that contains capture.exe?
Correction on the second question:
2. Do you see a folder at C:\Cadence\PSpiceTI\tools\bin that contains capture.exe?
thanks for looking into this. Regarding your questions:
1.) Yes, exactly. The tool is present in the start menu for the admin account, but not in my regular account.
2.) Yes, the capture.exe is in the path you specified.
Please let me know if you need further information.
The Pspice for TI vendor is looking into your problem and should have some feedback within a few days.
