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 pspice.ini file and/or capture.ini file 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.
