Installing under Windows (2000/XP/Vista)

(fg.1)Location of the Cadence install files


Step 1 Double click on My Computer and type in the address space \\\SPB. (fg.1) To gain access to this folder you must type in your ECE username and password. (Sometimes, the \\\SPB will not work, if it doesn't work, try \\\SPB i.e. try the IP address of the machine.)
Step 2 Open the folder called SPB1551_Program. Once in this folder find and open Setup.exe.
Step 3 With the installation started click on the Install Products button. The next window informs you to disable your antivirus, disregard this and continue.
Step 4 Now you will be brought to the License Manager Communication Setup. Under port number enter: 27002 and under host name enter: and continue.
Step 5 Enter in your desired name and ECE for Organization
Step 6 Skip this window by clicking next since there is no Control File used.
Step 7 Select which products you wish to have installed for Cadence. (if you are not sure which products you would like just leave everything selected to insure the program you need is provided with the install)
Step 8 Enter the location of your Home directory (for example C:\CadenceProjects)
Step 9 Click yes to install IntelliCAD.
Step 10 For footprint viewer options select none and continue.
Step 11 Check to make sure all products you selected are going to be installed before continuing.
Step 12 The next two windows ask that you associate certain extensions with Cadence. Click yes for both windows.
Step 13 You will now come to a reminder to add the libraries for cadence after the install. The directions for installing the libraries follow these steps.
Step 14 Let the install finish and restart your computer.
