The supported platforms for PADS 9.1 are:
- Windows Vista Ultimate or Business (SP1)
- Windows XP Professional (SP2)
Any use on newer O/S is unsupported and untested.
Thank you for the response. As I mentioned I have been running 9.1 and 9.4
on my older XP machine, for many years, and my newer Win 7 machine, for
almost two years now without problems. However, when I needed to install 9.1
on my Win 7 laptop it would not install, with the errors I mentioned in my
last post. Since then, I remembered that I had installed 9.4 first, then 9.1
on my Win 7 machine without problems. Trying this same scheme again on my
Win 7 Laptop I was able to install it successfully and appears to run OK. So
this is about as good as I can get if I need 9.1 on my may lap top on
limited occasions. Unfortunately, I require 9.1 for some of the legacy work
I do on older designs.
While reviewing my license file to see if that was the problem and noticed
the date stamp was 2011 - 2017. Does this mean I can only use pre-2011
software, 9.4, but will not be able to use my PADS software after 2017?
Because I am retired now, I am no longer on maintenance, but still support
my old customers, with their old legacy designs, and need to maintain my
9.1, 9.4 PADS. Will I still be able to use and re-install my old PADS after
2017? I thought that I would have a perpetual license after I discontinued
Thank you again for your help.
