How to use VOLTMETER_DIFF in SPICE simulation, KiCad 7.0

I’m having trouble trying to figure out how to use the differential voltmeter in the KiCad simulator (v7.0). In the schematic editor I filter for SPICE and see VOLTMETER_DIFF. When I add that to my simple test circuit and click to run simulation, I get an error. “Could not find include file C:/Program Files/KiCad/7.0/share/kicad/symbols/Simulation_SPICE.sp”. The file “Simulation_SPICE.sp” is nowhere on my computer and I can’t find a file by that name in GitHub. Any help with this is much appreciated…jim

As a newbie, I’m only allowed
to upload one image at a time. Sooooo, here are 2 other images related to VOLTMETER_DIFF…jim

Simulation model for VOLTMETER_DIFF

What is your KiCad version?
I have KiCad 7.0.8, and there is C:\Program Files\KiCad\7.0\share\kicad\symbols\Simulation_SPICE.sp
Perhaps you need to update KiCad.

Just upgraded to 7.0.9, including Simulation_SPICE.sp

On gitlab you will find it at

Leveled up. Welcome to the forum. :wave:

Thanks all, going from KiCad 7.0.0 to 7.0.9 did the trick! Differential volt meter working without a hitch. Thx again…jim
