I just looked at one of my DSN files. It doesn't look like it can be easily decrypted without knowing the format.
Here's a good group where you can post your question https://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/OrCADexchange . They might be able to point you to the DSN format spec or to help you solve your problem. The DSN format spec might be available, because a lot of non-Cadence EDA packages can open DSN.
The format for the DSN files must be available because there are a number of packages which import them. The question is where does one acquire it? The Cadence folks are not exactly on level of Bill Gates when it comes to being generous so my only thought was to post the request in as many of these forums as I could think of and hope that someone has what I need.

I would use the same approach. If you do yahoo groups, post to my OrCADexchange group too. It's a pretty big group, and there are probably OrCAD employees in the group, they might help you inofficially. I'm interested in this subject too, because I was burnt by incompatibilities between OrCAD an other EDA packages in the past.
