Questions and Answers

 

Question: Is there a way to install the MC5 Ver 2 security key driver without going through the entire installation?

Answer: Insert Disk 4 into your floppy drive. In Windows 3.X or Windows NT 3.5, go to File and Run and type in the following:

A:\hinstall  /i

The computer will be busy for a few seconds and then should return with a message that states that the driver has been installed.

For Windows 9X and Windows NT 4.0, go to the Start menu and choose the Run option and type in the following:

A:\hinstall  /i

Hit OK and a message will return that the security key driver has been installed.

Question: I'm building a schematic and I wanted to add in a few .define statements onto the schematic page. I went into text mode, clicked in the schematic, and then typed in multiple .define statements into the text dialog box. Why isn't it recognizing the statements?

Answer: The problem is occurring because multiple command statements were typed into the dialog box at a time. The text mode should have only one command statement, such as .define, .param, .ic, .model, typed in each time the dialog box is called up. In text mode, click in the schematic, type in one command statement and hit OK. Click in the schematic again, type in the second command statement and hit OK. Repeat as needed.
