Question

Can I simply run the CIP installer to update our OrCAD CIP server to the latest version?

 

Solution

The steps you follow when installing the latest version of CIP, are dependent upon the version of CIP you are currently using and the version of CIP you want to install. 


CIP versions are comprised of three numbers, for example 17.4.5 where 17 is the major version number; 4 is the minor version, and 5 is the distribution.


If the major and minor versions of CIP you are currently running match the CIP version to which you want to update, you may simply run a quick update to install the latest distribution. 


However if the major or minor version of CIP you are currently running do not match the version to which you want to upgrade. You need to follow the CIP Upgrade directions presented in the latest OrCAD CIP Install Guide.
