I have made my own subdirectory to create and store my circuits in, but whenever I try to go into analysis, I get an error that there is no such file or directory as "NOM.LIB" or some other library. How do I get Micro-Cap to find the libraries?

 

The problem is that MC5 is looking only in the current directory for the libraries, and if the libraries aren't in this directory, then it will not be able to find them. The way to fix this is to use the environmental variable, MC5DATA. Add this line inside your Autoexec.bat:

Set MC5DATA=C:\MC5\DATA

where C:\MC5\DATA is the directory the libraries are stored in. More than one directory may be specified for this variable, with the paths being separated by a semicolon.

A library that is not listed in the Nom.lib file must be referenced with a .lib statement placed in either the schematic or the text area.
