Microsim PSpice 8 and Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a rather old application, MicroSim PSpice 8, which I had installed on an older windows machine that died.  My newer, refurbished machine has Windows 7 Professional installed. 

    When I try to load MicroSim 8, which has an associated security HASP, onto the newer machine, I get an error message stating that the new machine with Windows 7 cannot see the HASP, and installation stops?

    And, I'm not sure that this is the correct forum for such a question .  .  .

    Any suggestions on how to install this electronic design program?

    According to your description which is really basic and does not give us a lot to work with, and according to my guessing your application used a certificate which was installed on your preview machine. If this is the case, and if you did not backup the certificate, then the procedure of cracking a certificate can take days (sometimes months) with a very good machine and you will need a high level knowledge about security. I am guessing that buying new application will be much simpler and cheaper.

    If you remember the exact procedure of the installation, then we might know better if there was use of encrypted certificate in used. Someone who familiar with that specific application might have more information. As much as I understand "MicroSim PSpice 8" is not Microsoft application, and therefore the MSDN forums are not the place to ask your question. You should use forums that fopcus on MicroSim PSpice.
