Orcad Capture CIS seems to work OK after applying the 'place part fix'.
What does not
Orcad Layout works but the drawing is very slow (this might be a video driver problem). The pads and line endings are garbled. A bug report has been filed (Bug 23409)
When loading a simulation file, the simulation bar doesn't show. When creating a new simulation project, it doesn't allow to create a new simulation profile (Pspice com wrapper error)
Orcad uses 2 extra processes: cdsNameserver and cdsMsgServer. These work but take 100% of the CPU time.
What was not tested
IMHO useful after the PSpice COM, CPU usage and garbled drawing problems are fixed.
