The pspice.ini and capture.ini files contain the startup settings for PSpice and Capture. You can restore the default settings of these tools by deleting the files as explained in the steps that follow.

  4. Rename the pspice.ini file to pspice_backup.

  5. Repeat these steps for the capture.ini file.
