Fix for Thread "PSPICE for TI install problem" Did Not Work

I followed the instruction in the forum "PSPICE for TI install problem". FIPS is disabled, I restarted my computer and I still get the same error.

  • Hi Chelsea,

    Have you rebooted the machine after changing the setting?

    Thanks,
    JC

  • Thanks Chelsea. This confirms the error you got although it is weird if the machine has been rebooted. We'll let you know if additional test is needed.

    Thanks,
    JC

  • Hi Chelsea,

    Once rebooted, the setting should be present in the Windows registry. Would you please double-check the value of "Enabled" DWORD value in the following registry after restarting the machine:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\FipsAlgorithmPolicy?

    Example from my system:

    thanks,
    JC

  • Chelsea,

    Thanks. We are looking into this.

    -JC

  • Hi Chelsea,

    Please try this:

    • Copy the "TIPSpice.exe.config" file in the attached zip to %Appdata%\Cadence\PspiceTIInstall folder.
    • Run the existing TIPSpice.exe in the same folder ( %Appdata%\Cadence\PspiceTIInstall\).

    Please let us know what happens.

    TIPSpice.exe.zip

    Thanks,
    JC

  • I am having a similar issue. Any ideas?

  • Hi Patrick,

    Have you tried the method above (10/10)?

    -JC

  • PSpice was successfully downloaded after doing this.

  • Hi Chelsea,

    Thanks for confirming.

    Regards,

    JC

  • I thought that is what I did.  The first picture shows the config file with the install file correct?

    Thanks,

    Patrick

  • this is the 10/10 post:

  • Worked, Thanks so much for the help

  • nice. Thanks for confirming ...
