HowTo / Notes


Well. it is easy to install/use ths one: It might be painfull for some of you who'd like to use Orcad under wine, but by any means I tried, it works under wine 2005-04-19 and above (if someone figures out how to make it work under early wine versons, please let me know here), in particular, it works perfectly despite using help will just CRASH the application, under wine 2005-05-24 and CVS up to today, installs and all...

Hope this helps


1) this program INSTALLS under wine, however it WILL complain to the end of installation of some errors, which you must just ACCEPT and ignore in order to complete the installation, after that, it will just work, and remember, always talking about wine 2005-04-19 and above.

2) NEVER, EVER, FOR NOTHING, BY NO MEANS use the help. It will CRASH the app and anything you were working on will be lost...

3) Orcad under wine will do nothing if you want to insert a Title block, so, for the moment, copy and modify/replace the default title block created with each page, and off course, if someone gets any of this features working, post it here or let me know
