PSPICE-FOR-TI: Simulation setting window disappear

Part Number: PSPICE-FOR-TI

Hi Experts,

My customer met a similar problem in below link. When customer creates a new simulation profile, the contents in the Simulation Settings window disappear. Restarting the software or computer doesn't work. Do you know the possible reasons? Thanks

  • Hello Arie,

    What version of PSpice for TI is the customer using? Version number is indicated in the middle of the Start Page when the customer launches PSpice for TI. 

    Is the customer using a Windows 10 machine?

    Does this problem occur for all projects or only one specific project?

    Thank you,

    this problem occurs for all projects.
