Yup,
On Win2KPro.
Same here and random, it does hang,
and lately sometimes it even blows you out of
Protel while compacting and does not complete
the compact so I have to do it manually.
But so far no show stopper just very annoying.

 Steve,
 just for Roger's or your reference, I always close the open DDBs,
 shut down P99SE SP6, still I have the hung Protel if I check task manager.
 Not that often but a few times per week. The usual way that I find this is
 when I logout  shutdown at the end of the day and I get a message stating
 that P99SE SP6 is still running, do I want to close it now.

Win2k SP2 here and I have not had Protel hang on shutdown for a very long 
time. (Actually haven't had Protel crash for ages either).

PIII-450 (yes, a dinosaur) (you should see DXP run on this!)
256M RAM
100BaseT network
Matrox G550
Canon Inkjet printer locally
A number of network (shared) printers on other computers or set to dump to 
FILE:
CDRW (with the dreaded Roxio software, Easy CD Creator 4)
Office 2000 (with FP and Access installed)
Adobe Acrobat 4.05 (Distiller and Maker both installed)

McAfee Virus Scan on but I thought I had turned off file scanning (on 
open/create/modify etc) but I just checked and inbound files are auto 
scanned - this
means any file modified or copied by this or other computer id scanned on 
the fly.  In the past I have found McAfee causes Protel to hang if the file 
scanning options are enabled.  (Don't you hate the cutesy HTML style look 
of the new McAfee and Norton virus scanners!)

Machine is on 24/7 with occasional shutdowns when I am going away or am 
installing new hardware (maybe once every month or so).

Protel is shutdown and restarted about once a day when I am Protelling.  I 
do *not* bother closing DDBs before closing usually - since I do not have a 
problem with closing down.

Dunno what MDAC drivers I have, but they have been updated somewhere along 
the line.  MySQL is installed as is buckets of dev tools (MS and Borland) 
etc etc etc.  If someone lets me know how to find the MDAC drivers I can 
post them.

In Protel I use -Sch, SchLib, PCB, PCBLib, SIM, Text Edit, CamManager.  I 
use Access-format DDBs. P99SE SP6. Compact on close is enabled.

That is about it.  There is probably a method of dumping a machine 
configuration and then those unfortunate souls having problems may be able 
to try to determine the differences.  Actually, Altium should try to get as 
many of these dumps and ratings of stability and try to determine why their 
program shows the huge variation in stability that us users see.

I do run the Windows update service every so often (every couple of weeks) 
and get the next few Mbytes of security patches.

Microsoft has an MDAC component checker utility that will analyse your
machine to determine the MDAC version:

Re: [PEDA] WIN2000 vs P99

2002-09-04 Thread Dennis Saputelli

yes on one machine (of 4, all win2k)
it frequently did exactly what you describe here (failed to finish 
compact when closing a DDB and protel session completely vanishes in 
poof)

after a lot of frittering we replaced the whole box and now that problem 
seems cured
still don't know if it was hardware or software

Protel was no help, they claimed they never heard of this problem and
could not reproduce it

now on the new box once in a while when you push the SAVE button (of all
things!)
we get an exception error, the save does not occur and protel has to be
killed with the task manager

the protel session is still alive (if you click 'IGNORE')
and you can draw and do most operations
you just can't save the file or quit protel

the only good news here is that if you wait unit the timed backup 
period occurs, it will make a good backup in the designated
backup directory

this strongly suggests that this too is a DDB problem of some sort

maybe these are the reasons protel left DDB behind in DXP

Roger,

I had the same problems with W2K when using 2 Canon printers, one on the
network and one on my desktop. I was able to get an updated driver that
solved the memory problem with the networked printer. I was never able to
resolve the problem with the desktop printer and susequently replaced it
with an HP. The printer problem did not arise until after installing SP2 for
W2K.

Hope this helps.

There are LOTS of people running P99 on W2K. It's something specific to
your system. I know that's not a lot of help, but at least it lets you
know you're not trying to do something that's impossible. (like running
P99 on DOS for example)

My spectra dongle worked on W2K. (I say worked because I'm now using
XP Pro) I had to get some updated flexlm driver from the web. It's a
real b*tch to setup. You have to do it with admin rights, and then make
sure the daemon is loaded properly. I wish they had a s/w key system
like protel. It's very easy to use, and while it doesn't prevent theft,
it does attach the ID to the user, and it would be extremely foolish for
a user to give out their key codes.

IF this message shows up, I'll know we are being censored. (I didn't

Roger, Tony,
the behaviour of P99SE on Win2k is not that uncommon. I have the
hanging P99SE on close (application does not shut down completely) randomly
and I know others have mentioned it on the listserver. Does not seem to be a
show stopper to anyone though.
As for your other problems, I have had a memory problem with
Camtastic on one occasion but I am sure it was actually a data problem
within the database. I have done larger more complicated panels without the
same memory problem showing again.

Re: [PEDA] Win2000 problem

2002-02-19 Thread Michael . Binning



All sorted.  Admin priveliges were set.

It seems the designer in question turned on the autoplacer, and then didn't
realise it had to be turned off.

Once it was turned off, the components stopped wandering about.

As for the libraries that would not load, that was because the network
drive he was trying to access was not mapped, but being accessed via the My
Network Places feature.  It seems Protel cannot handle this Win2000
feature.

 And I am not able to add a library from a database.

 If I try to open that database, which is populated with libraries, each
 window appears empty, and all libraries appear empty, bar a component_1.

 There is nothing wrong with the library database.  It works beautifully
on
 our Win95 machines.

 Any ideas?  Have people seen things like this before?



One possibility would be a problem with access permissions. On W2K, you
want
to install (and probably use) Protel with full Administrator privileges.

Re: [PEDA] Win2000

2002-02-07 Thread Jeff Adolphs

I had some real problems - but it was a bad RAM card. Now Protel 99SE
w/SP6 is running fantastic on Win2000.
Note: I do mixed analog/digital 2 layer, 4 layer boards and do not use
Autorouting or Simulation software.

Even the crappy Compaq IPAQ with Intel Celeron processor is running all
my software well. Software being: PowerCerv, AutoCAD 2000, MS Office
2000, MS Outlook, etc. RAM is 326 Meg which is more than I thought I
had.

 How well does Protel 99SE w/SP 6 work with Win2000?

Very well indeed. I rarely have problems, and reboots are rare - With Win
9x/ME type o/s's reboots were frequently required (2000 has much better
resource management). I've been using Protel under Windows 2000 for a long
time, and I've never looked back. Highly recommended o/s for this type of
work.

Steve.

Ive just had IS upgrade my pc to win2k and Protel, over the small period

WinNT4.
Other people may have different opinions though.

Summary of topic and recommendation:

If you are running Protel 99SE on anything other than Windows 2000, get a 
W2000 license and install it and use it. It may be a good time to upgrade 
your computer, since W2000 installs much more easily on a fresh system than 
as an upgrade.

I tried to upgrade one W98 computer to W2000 and failed. I upgraded an NT 
system to W2000 without problems. And a new install was, like, fully automatic.

XP is an unknown quantity theoretically it should be better, but.
