Cannot Open OSCAD Workspace in Windows 7 and Cannot Find KiCad in Installation Folders
Title
Question
I installed the OSCAD installer for Windows 7 from the <a href="http://www.oscad.in/downloads" style="color: rgb(17, 85, 204); background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);" target="_blank">website</a>, and after installing it, ran the software.

When I try to run OSCAD from the Start Menu, the cmd flashes for a second, and then the software doesn't launch. I took a screenshot, and found out that the cmd gave this:


C:\OSCAD> cd OSCAD

C:\OSCAD\OSCAD> cd forntEnd

C:\OSCAD\OSCAD\forntEnd>python oscad.py
'python' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.


Apparently, I found a way to 'fix' this. I opened cmd, and typed out all of the above manually. the last command I changed to "oscad.py" instead of "python oscad.py", and the little window with the OSCAD logo opened. But when I created a new project, only the Toolkit appeared, and no workspace was on the screen.

???

Answers:

The problem is that KiCad Ngspice and Python has not been installed on your computer. You need to re-<span style="color:rgb(51,51,51);font-family:'Lucida Grande','Lucida Sans Unicode',helvetica,verdana,arial,sans-serif;line-height:24.27743911743164px;text-align:justify">install these softwares. For installing KiCad, go to Oscad installer folder. Go to the folder "resources". Double click on the file KiCad.exe. Give the installation path as C:\
After installation, change the environment variable path of KiCad to C:\KiCad\bin.

Follow similar procedure for Ngspice and Python also. Then launch the Osacd.

Did you check if there is an entry for python in the system environment variable PATH? Also open cmd prompt and type python. What does it say?
