I have followed the tutorial at PADS Did you know PADS has the largest number of parts, symbols, and footprints available, all for free on the web? Learn mor…

 

-Error "No product license available...parts will not be decrypted..."

-In PartQuest site, I Cannot change "download directory" from PartQuest as I do not have the "pq.ini" file anywhere, and I would like to change the DL folder to the following directory: C:\MentorGraphics\PADSVX.1.2\SDD_HOME\Libraries\PartQuest, for now it goes to C:\Downloads, so I found and edited Partquest.ini and now I get a new error message talking about re-opening .pqz file because it did not decrypt.

-If I copy and paste the .pqz file to my directory C:\MentorGraphics\PADSVX.1.2\SDD_HOME\Libraries\PartQuest\PADS_Professional, and then double-click the .pqz file, that appears to do nothing

-Going into XDxDesigner I select "Symbols LIbraries" and point to C:\Pads Projects\PartQuest, but no symbols show up.

-Importing partquest parts gives the new "Decrypt error" message...

 

I really do not know how to make this work...Help!
