    Hi. I am currently reading chapter 2(computer simulation) and my problem is ; I installed the application 5spice analysis, then i wrote the specifications of my circuit with block notes(using windows 7) but when i try the command "" spice < circuit1.cir "" it tells me " specified file cannot be found".

    Welcome to AAC!
    I'm not familiar with 5spice but, assuming the .cir file exists on your computer, I'd guess you don't have it in the right folder.

    It might need to be in the 5spice folder or one of the folders in that directory.

    Agreed. 5spice might also find the file if you tell it the full path to the file.
