Steve,

I am fairly new to Protel and simulations, however I noticed that the nsx
file also contains information as to what analysis is to be performed.  If
there is an nsx file open while performing a simulation re-run (which seems
to be the default) I noticed that I was prompted to save and use that nsx
file.  If I select 'yes' I noticed that at least some of the analysis
parameters were not saved.  Specifically I would change the 'Stop Freq' in
the AC small signal window, but if I selected 'yes' when prompted to use and
save the currently opened nsx file I noticed that the stop frequency was the
same as previous analysis.  It seems that one has to select 'no', so that a
new nsx file is generated along with the new analysis options.

I am using ddb format with Protel99SE on Win98SE.

Hope this helps,

Marshall

Hello again Rolf,

I have now created a fresh Windows File System design, and put in it just
the schematic that I am simulating. There is no CFG file created in the
schematic directory, but one is created in my temp directory. I have set
different locations for the temp directory environment variables, and each
time the cfg is put into the temp directory that I have set (after a restart
of P99SE), but P99SE doesn't look there for the file. If I move the file
from the temp directory to the directory containing the schematic, then the
simulation runs as I would expect. BUT, changing sim options updates the
file in the temp directory (as I suspected, but not much use). So, it would
appear that on this system (P99SE SP6, Windows 2000) the cfg file is created
in the temp directory, but accessed in the schematic directory. I presume
nobody else has seen this, as it's so annoying that I'm sure that it would
have been reported. If somebody else can confirm/deny this behaviour I'd be
grateful.

Thanks

Steve.
