We have a need to be able to run a full licence and the Viewer on the same machine (though not at the same time)...has anyone successfully done so? The programs seem to get very confused. Simply opening the correct app doesn't work.
I assume you do not want to consume a license with you wanting to use the viewer. We don't use the viewer but force PADS into demo mode for viewing only stuff.
Put the below in a .bat file and run to make PADS run in demo mode.
start "" C:\MentorGraphics\PADSVX.2.3\SDD_HOME\common\win32\bin\powerpcb.exe
Thank you Wheels, works a treat.
