Question

I have tried using Bootcamp and Parallels to access my OrCAD products on a Mac. Licensing for the OrCAD products I am using is on a USB dongle. However, I am unable to access my product licensing from either Bootcamp or Parallels. 

 

Suggested Solution

If you are using a native MacOS and running an instance of either Bootcamp or Parallels you need to verify you have the USB connectors ported over to the Windows instance. You can do this in the USB settings for your VM.


This needs to be done prior to the installation of License Manager on the machine. If it is turned on after it is recommended to reinstall the LM or update the drivers for the USB.
