Installing PCB software, including Orcad, on Windows

Note: This document is currently unsupported, and remains here for archival purposes

This page describes how to set up the Cadence PCB software, which includes Orcad, under Windows 2000. I have not tested the install under any other version of Windows, but the basic installation should be the same. What is critical here are the System Variables and a registry entry for licensing. You will need to have administrative privileges in order to install this software.
