Have downloaded and installed V16.5 of the free viewer on a Win7 64 bit system. When trying to open a V16.2 .brd file I get the following error:
ERROR (SPHMOD-36): Cannot open drawing. The database type is not appropriate for viewing in this product.
What do I need to do to open a .brd file supplied by a design house (it appears that a .sip or .dps is what the program is looking for)? My design house does not how to create the requested file types.
In 16.5 there are two viewers.... one for Allegro .brd files, and one for.mcm/.sip files. What is the name of the executable you are running?
In reply to BillAcito:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Cadence Design Systems\Allegro Free Physical Viewers 16.5\tools\pcb\bin\allegro_free_viewer.exe" -sip -noopengl
I din't realize there were 2 different viewers. Opening the correct one sovled the problem.
Thanks for the quick response.
