'[OT] anyone using OrcadPCB ver 2.00 ? reply to me '

I hate to ask...but I know there are some or maybe some ex OrCad users.
Version 2.00 is from around 1989, and I have been using it for the last 10
years, moving it from one machine to the next.  So, I picked up a little 486
HP laptop, and have been moving all my engineering software to it from the
desktop 486 I was using.  Problem is...when I try to run it, I get an error
saying 'program too big for memory'.  Runs fine on the other machine, and in
fact I have more memory on the laptop than the desktop.  Did the mem/c to
see what is loaded, and I have more available program space on the laptop.
So...is anyone using/used this, and seen this before?  draft.exe runs just
fine.

I suppose I could use something less ancient, but I don't have alot of time
to spin up on new PCB software these days.
Unless there is something very easy to spin up on.  Worse comes to worse,
I'll keep that machine up and running till I migrate or figure this out.

thanks in advance.

Did you try the execution from Windows Prompt?

Harrison,

I  have the same problem.
It happens because you use different or different version of OS with
differents or more device driver.
I solve it  making more then one CONFIG.SYS copies and one for ORCAD with
only the device I need.
I have made a .BAT that copy the CONFIG.OCD into CONFIG.SYS and reset the
machine when I need it.
It WORKS with MS DOS 5.02 . On newer OS you can change CONFIG.SYS on the
fly.

In the old days some programs would not run if their start-adress was in
the first 64 KByte of memory.  The way to circumvent this was to "use" the
first 64 K before another program was loaded.  The "stickyTape" solution to
this was LoadFix.COM
