hi,
i successfully installed cadence ic6.15 and mmsim10 on ubuntu 14.04 . but i'm stuck in an error

"*WARNING* The Virtuoso Analog Design Environment (ADE) creates a user interface (UI) to match the features of the particular version of MMSIM you are using. The software could not find the 'feature file' in the MMSIM hierarchy that lists the features available in this version of MMSIM. You might be using a wrapper script around spectre such that 'which spectre' returns your wrapper script and not spectre in the MMSIM hierarchy. For now, ADE will create a UI to match the latest version
of spectre. If you are using an older version and do not want to see the UI for features that are not available in that version, you can set the following variable according to spectre version you are using:
setenv SPECTRE_FEATURE_FILE /home/pathForMMSIM/tools/spectre/etc/files/spectre.dat"
This error is seen when i launch ADE L. But ADE L window opens up and then when i click on "NETLIST AND RUN" I get another error

"ERROR (ADE-3023): Unable to locate spectre executable in the specified path. Ensure that
the executable is present in the path or to set the correct path, use
the setShellEnvVar() in Command Interpreter Window (CIW)."
Pls help.

Does anyone know how to add/create new license FEATUREs that appear in IC616, etc. latest Cadence products to the license.dat attached in the author's attachment? Is there any tool out there I can use to create these new license features, particularly for those SIGN2 encriptions for these features?

Please notice that discussion of license hacking methods isn't permitted at Edaboard. In case of doubt review the forum rules.

But be pretty sure can't easily create new or modify exiting licenses, particularly not if the newer "counterfeit proof" license keys are used.

Hi manikantaxyz,
thanks fot the post.
I installed IC 6.15 and MMSIM 12.10 on Ubuntu 10.04 using the VirtualBox in 32 bit mode. When I run virtuoso, no error or warning in the cds.log file.
But when i run simulation with spectre (of a simple circuit) in ADE, I get this ERROR message in CIW, and the outputs are not plotted:
ERROR (ADE-3036): Errors encountered during simulation. The simulator run log has not been generated.Possible cause could be an invalid command line option for the version of the simulator
you are running. Choose Setup->Environment and verify that the command line options specified in the userCmdLineOption field are supported for the simulator. Alternatively, run the simulator standalone using the runSimulation file in the netlist
directory to know the exact cause of the error.

Please can you help me to solve tihs problem. I would really appreciate it.

I manage to install virtuoso with iscape, but the install directly is root/cadence/IC615 instead of the dir we created edatools/virtuoso

Thanks!

If you don have received a valid license, e.g. from your university, you can't run the software.

And you won't find pirated license files at Edaboard because they have been deleted. Please notice that requests for copyrighted material will be deleted as well.

Hello Guys, this guide is very helpful. But, I am getting a DB-320001 error when I write virtuoso in the command line. The error is the following:

*ERROR* (DB-320001): Unable to get the Cadence(R) Design Framework II license feature of "111".
