Hello,

We use an old schematic capture program called SCHEMA from a company called
Omation which appears to be gone. We are currently having problems locating
Video drivers for newer VGA cards to work with this program. My questions:

Does anybody know if Omation still exists - bought out, name change, or
other?

Does anybody know where drivers for SCHEMA could be gotten?


Thanks for any info,

John Weisgerber

Omation was bought out by Accel Corporation (the makers of Tango)in San
Diego, CA about two years ago. They would know where to locate drivers,
if available, but I believe they merged their tools set with Tango, their
program,

Hope this helps!!

Bought out by (?orcad? one of the big guys), new owner co. doesn't support
but provides an upgrade path to their own products. I have a phone # in my
notes of (619)554-1000 from when I tried to track down Omation last year. Call
it and see if anyone answers :-)

I doubt if you can get updated drivers, but you should still be able to run
with your display in "plain vanilla" VGA mode.

I still use Schema III and still have the original 3-ring binder (remember when software came with a manual?) and the last release on disk, version 3.34. The program came with lots of video drivers, many rather generic, I've had no problem using it with modern monitors ... as long as the monitor has a VGA connector, it will likely work.
