I am trying to run a simulation. But the CIW window of Virtuoso shows:

WARNING (ADE-1019): A simulation is currently running. You must wait until the current simulation is done to run another simulation.

But when I click on "Stop Simulation Symbol", it reacts with:

INFO (ADE-3072): Simulation is stopped by user. Simulation results may not be complete.

But after I click on "Run" it shows the same warning (ADE-1019) again.
So, can anyone tell me the manual process to stop a ADE L simulation by the script of CIW in Virtuoso or any other method is welcome.

Thank you

You may have some kind of "lock-file" problem.

ps -u {userName} should show you all running PIDs.

I do not know how ADE locks sessions but you might
look in and under the run directory for "mystery files"
whose name suggests such a role. \

Or just get out of ADE and start over with a clean empty
run-folder picked, and copy in anything that you know
for sure belongs (in schematic driven simulation, probably
little or none that doesn't get generated for you).

I don't think its about locking the ADE session. It looks like some kind of software cache memory got full and need to restart it (Just my guess). I will try your 1st method which seems quite interesting.

But the one you shared in 2nd, from that I got the idea of restarting ADE to solve this issue.
First I saved the spectre_state file of ADE and closed it. Then re-opened it and load the saved spectre_state. Now I can run the ADE.
