I was hoping the company wouldn't have to buy individual license for another product. We are having so many restrictions with buying software. Any other ideas?

Besides re-intalling Adobe's software this freeware might be a best start..

You may need a 'plug in' for Acrobat v. 6

by nepenthe0 In reply to What version of Adobe???

I likewise use Adobe Acrobat v. 6, and when I open Edit > Preferences > Convert to PDF, I see the following file types listed:

AutoCAD
Compuserve GIF
HTML
JPEG
JPEG2000
Microsoft Office
Microsoft Project
Microsoft Visio
PCX
PNG
PostScript/EPS
Text
TIFF

I don't see ORCAD in this list, and I recommend that you check out the Adobe Acrobat knowledge base for instructions to add this file type.

Viewer?

by TheChas In reply to What version of Adobe???

The simple way to convert obscure file formats to PDF is to print them to PDF from the application itself, or from a viewer.

Searching at the Cadence web site, I found this link.

If it will open up the file for viewing, you should be able to then print it as a PDF.

Aren't you tired of registering product/company info just to (expletive) download a trial product. ACK!

OrCAD Version

by TheChas In reply to Myriad Orcad Viewer

My only thought is that the version of OrCAD used to create the file is not compatible with the version of Myriad.

Either that, or the OrCAD file you received is corrupt.

If it is at all possible, get Adobe (or any other PDF creator) installed on the computer of the person who created the drawing and have them print to PDF.

Either that, or get a printout and scan it in.

Final news...

by morecowbell In reply to OrCAD Version

I downloaded a the Myriad Desktop viewer and I also have Adobe Standard loaded and whoa and behold it works, but the MYriad Desktop viewer is only a trial version. ALSO Myriad 3D viewer which is free, didn't support .dsn files. Soooooooo, I will have to pay if I continue to use the Desktop version.
I was looking for a viewer so I wouldn't have to buy a 300$ plug-in. I might as well purchase CS3.
