KiCad crashes immediately as soon as I select ‘Start simulation’

Do you have a symbol in your schematic that does not have a SPICE model defined? That might cause this behaviour; fixed in 7.99 and will be fixed in 7.0.2.
If that is the case, assign a proper model and configure it properly, and it should work.

Unfortunately everything is set properly…KiCad crashes and its window is immediately closed. Tomorrow morning I will test the same circuitry on another computer (same OS but different build)

I see that I mistyped above. I meant to say that there might be a symbol that doesn’t have a SPICE model properly defined or missing a SPICE model…

Will check tomorrow…thanks a lot !

ERC indicates that my generic op amp +15v & -15V pins are not connected. I’m actually struggling to fix this…

ERC has now only warnings but simulation crashes the entire KiCad program

Sorry but is Kicad able to read .cir file when I set the simulation model ? Or do I need to convert this type of file to .lib or to .sub or to .ibs
