Please help me.
Tool: Allegro PCB design L 16.3
When I try to do file/import/CAD translators/orcad layout/xxx.MAX/translate, I am getting a message
"Layout to PCB editor"
"could not find a TELENV environment variable or the ENV file".
The status window says, "successfully completed ". But there is no file created.
What will be the problem? How can I correct it? Can anybody direct me to the related forum?
You could try the following, found on sourcelink. however normally your env file will contain a reference to telenv
The Layout to Allegro translator will only run on computers that have Allegro installed on them. Because the VIF interface into Allegro wants to assess your ENV file before doing the translation, you must have a Windows NT environment variable named TELENV pointing to your Allegro ENV file. Typically, a copy of the ENV file can be found in the \SHARE\PCB\TEXT path.
To set the TELENV environment variable, right-click on the My Computer icon on your desktop and choose Properties from the pop-up menu. Choose the Environment tab, enter TELENV in the Variable text box, enter the path where the ENV file is located in the Value text box, then click Set. You should see a new entry that is similar to the following, depending on your installation location:

Thank you Ole.
The allegro is installed in the system, and the translator was working fine before. The ENV file is there in the \SHARE\PCB\TEXT path. So I have done as you suggested. but after giving the path in the env variable path, the allegro couldn't open at all.
I think I need to reinstall the tool in the system.
