Question

EMA forwarded to me several files in an email message, which include my license file and a “Controlfile.txt”. What is the purpose of this?


Answer

When installing the main OrCAD software as a “Complete” installation, all base OrCAD products are installed under the OrCAD umbrella.


The Control file supports custom installations and installs only products that have licensing. The control file is provided upon request and helps OrCAD users conserve their computer disk space. The Control file also limits the installation of desktop shortcuts to licensed products.


The control file may be saved in the same directory as your license file.
