Known Issues

Regional Formatting Bug

There is a known issue with some regional formats that causes bad loading and rendering of board and chip views. When the problem occurs, you may see some shapes appear with missing content and exaggerated size. The problem is particular to formats that use a comma (',') or any character besides '.' as the decimal separator.

We will be working on a solution, but in the meantime there is a workaround.

To use the workaround, you need to temporarily change the format settings in Windows to a format that uses '.' as the decimal separator such as English (United States). For example, in Windows 7, you can access the setting through Control Panel → Change display language, click the Formats tab, and select “English (United States)” in the “Format” drop-down.

ACE or SDP Driver Install Fails or Warns me the driver/exe is unsigned

Warnings may be safely ignored and dismissed, but they do highlight likely issues with your PC. The SDPDrivers and ACE package uses the latest signing technology and your PC may be out of date and unable to recognise the signing key.

  1. Make sure the PC is connected to the Internet and can get root certificate updates, normally this happens automatically.
    1. Check group policies to automatically update these run gpedit.msc
    2. Make sure the setting below is either Not Configured or Disabled

    4. If you can't connect to the internet e.g. an “air gapped” lab PC. Try downloading a suitable update package from Microsoft to remedy the issue and transfer it via USB.
  2. Check for and install all the latest Windows updates
  3. Check your group policy settings, these may be controlled by IT or a System Administrator
    1. Ideally select Warn as the safer option in case you later encounter malicious software
    2. Run gpedit.msc and navigate to the setting below
