What works

Installation mostly succeeds. Applications seeming load, but freeze. 

What does not

FlexLM cannot be installed because of this error:


 I got around this by downloading a linux version of FlexLM from another vendor. Trouble is that you also need the vendor deamon. In this case cdslmd. I got this file from my windows installation and made a bash script to trick FlexLM into loading it with wine. The FlexLM log seems to suggest that this worked.

 When running the applications, they no longer complain about a valid license, but they just kind of hang at the point where it should ask which license to use.

 Most give the error:

 fixme:advapi:LookupAccountNameW L"" L"root" 0x154ae8 0x19ae728 0x154b88 0x19ae734 0x19ae724 - stub

and layout says:

err:ole:dispatch_rpc no apartment found for ipid {ffffffff-ffff-ffff-6c00-000059000000}




What was not tested

None of the applications would let me do anything, so almost everything.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO Install OrCAD 16.5
The OrCAD 16.5 installer requires the system-wide Owner and Organization to be set.  To set these fields just open the Wine Configuration (winecfg) and go to the About tab.  Once these fields are set then the installer will proceed normally.

Capture works fine here. (16.5)
But pspice fails, giving me an installation error at "New Simulation": I can give a Profile name, but it also requires an Inherit from an existing profile. If I put "non", a pop-up tells me about some incomplete installation; and asks me to run some binaries against the regserver: PSpiceExplorerSrvr.exe, pspice.exe, SimSrvr.exe, simmgr.exe and mrksrvr.exe.
I did all, but no change.

Before I file a bug: how can I uninstall and reinstall?
