pcb 5.01 for windows 2003 server

Hi All,

I have installed PowerPCB 5.0.1 and its cracked license in windows xp. What I found is that I have to set the compatability to windows95, else it will complain wrong host during startup.

Because of some reasons, I must use PowerPCB 5.0.1 in windowsNT 2000. I installed the program and setup the license. But it always complain wrong host during startup and enter as demo mode. I would like to ask if anyone have success in installing PowerPCB in windowsNT 2000?

Pow*PCB 5.0.1 can run on Win2k / NT.

powerpcb 5.0 license expiration

I do know PowerPCB 5.0.1 can run in WindowsNT 2000. But my problem is that it complains "wrong host" for the cracked license. The cracked license works well in windows 95 and windows xp.

flexid emulator

Create the following environment variables:

- Variable Name = PADS_LIC_FILE_PCB
- Variable Value = 7508@host -> (Change host to your computer name)

power pcb pads_lic_file_pcb

Before seting up variable environment, you must another install license server and have a working license file. Using license daemon to set up license.

Best Regards. :)
