I'm tryng to run FPM 0.0.8.0. each time I try to generate a symbols orcad pcb editor 16.3 starts but the screen ramains black and on the command windows appears :E- Command not found: skill 'load "c:\\FPM\\fpm.il"'
I've tried to replace the exe with the patched version but nothing happens
does any one have some triks to make it run?
I'm using windows 7
I apologize if this is not the right section to post this issue
The "load" command is not available in the OrCAD level tools, they don't have all of the SKILL capabilities, so you won't be able to use this script. You need, at least, an Allegro PCB Design L license to get the "load" command licensed.

Ok Thank you!
In reply to Vapor Europe:
In the OrCAD Allegro PCB products, you can still load Skill code at program startup by placing the load statements in the allegro.ilinit file that you place in <HOME>/pcbenv. You should place your skill code in the same directory.
In reply to fxffxf:
Maybe You can run the skill this way but fpm is using its own call to allegro and it looks like it does not run "call" the allegro.ilinit. And before using fpm, assure to use the "altéred" exe file.
