I have used Eagle, Target-3001, Pulsonix for creating a pcb design of my circuit. But what I've found is that none of them routes +Vcc and Gnd. Actually the problem is that the ICs are shown as packages w/o these pins in the schematics. eg:IC-4001 doesnt show any pin no.7 or 14 in the schematic. Can anybody amongst you please post the solution to this problem. Thanking you in advance.

I don't understand what do you mean by: "none of them routes +Vcc and Gnd."

Do you mean that they don't have a trace in your layout?
I never seen anything like that,

Is it really your problem?
If yes, I think you may edit layout manually and connect traces to Vcc and Gnd pins for your IC, or if you are exporting an IC for a schematic design, and you're using a connector for it, then if you connected Vcc and Gnd, then exported schematic to layout, then automatically, you will see them on layout,

I hope that helps,
Regrads,

Vcc and Gnd are there. To show them click on "Invoke", then on the device, choose the hidden pins and click OK - that's it.
