New Kicad user here (but experienced with other PCB cad tools), sorry if this has been covered somewhere. I checked the FAQ but couldn’t find it.
Building a simple circuit with one Q that needs an external model. The generated spice netlist includes a .include in which the pathname includes spaces and an apostrophe, abstracted here:
.include “\xxxx\yyyy\zzzz’s Documents\Home Repair\PWB Tools\zzzz’s Kicad Projects\AMP_eg\BC546.lib”
Simulation gives: “Error: Could not find include file \xxxx\yyyy\zzzz”
Some googling suggests that the use of spaces in path names was a Kicad issue long ago but has been solved. Noting that my error message truncates just before the apostrophe, I’m asking if an apostrophe in the pathname is causing problems with the netlist parser.
Thanks for your help.
PS: I am an old Unix guy and understand that an apostrophe can cause these kinds of problems. But this pathname is fairly entrenched on my multi-user Win 10 system and will be hard to change.
