I am using windows 10. When I am opening esim, and trying to create new project it is showing that it should not contain spaces. I am not using any spaces but the same message is coming again and again....

Please make sure that you have not enter any space in your project name. So for example if you are using project name as "Bridge Rectifier" (without quotes) then it won't work as it contain space in between name. Instead you can use "BridgeRectifier" (without quotes).

If it doesn't solve your problem then please check whether your project path contain any space in between.To be on safer side , you can use the default esim-worspace where all your project files will be stored.

Do let us know if you still face the same issue.

Please open your cmd prompt in windows and go to the location where your eSim is installed. The default location is C:\\eSim

Change directory to this location.
cd C:\\eSim\\src\\frontEnd\\

Then type
python Application.py

It will open up your eSim and then try to create new project. If you get the same error just go to the terminal to check the error message just paste that error here.

Traceback (most recent call last):

Its look like PyQt4 is not installed properly. But how did you enter new project name in the GUI because PyQt4 is used to develop GUI.

Please try to reinstall PyQt4 module. Its exe is available in the dependency directory.

Please right click on exe and run it as administrator. Also if you have any anti virus please disable it.
After installation is completed you can enable it again.
