I'm attempting to install the starter libraries that Cadence provides here: http://www.cadence.com/products/pcb/Pages/downloads.aspx for Design Entry HDL. I was able to edit the CDS.LIB file as mentioned in the instructions but step 7 says to "Create an Allegro ENV file in your $HOME\pcbenv folder with the following entries:"
The only problem is that I don't know where this pcbenv folder is! Is it supposed to be in the local project directory with my worklib and such?
Thanks in advance for your help!
You should have a user environment variable called HOME. (Control Panel/System/Advanced/Environment Variables). This should point to your Cadence system folder that should have a subfolder with the name pcbenv.

ok, thanks for the info. I ended up setting up the psmpath and padpath using the options menu in PCB Editor to tell cadence where the project's symbols and pads were. It's working but I assume that the difference is that if I do it the way Cadence suggests (and I still couldn't find that folder for some reason in my v16.3 directory), that every project I create or open will know where the libraries are versus having to set that up with each new project I create. My problem with the PC I'm using is that I don't have admin rights and that the primary drive is re-imaged every day so I'm having to keep my libraries and projects on a partition that doesn't get imaged.
