    Hi, I have a fairly old copy of Electronics Workbench that has served me well for some years now. I tried to install it on a new PC and it will not go. It is a version that that came on Stiffy's and a dongle. I tried to contact Electronics Workbench to help and/or buy a new one and was told that the company was bought out by NI and I must now use their product. Only problem is the (very) high cost of their product and of course the new learning curve. Any ideas?

    Have you tried a "Compatibility Mode" on the new PC to run it as WIN-98 or something to see if it will work?

    EW5 was great, LOL. Now might be a good time to jump into LTSpice, which is free (look up on google). It has a little learning curve, but not too bad. I find the info you get from it is quite a bit more useful than from the old EW, once you get used to it.
