I am working on a project that uses Atium Designer, and I am trying to import an Allegro footprint file (.dra) into the Altium project, but it is saying the design file version is too old. How do I fix this problem if I don't have any Allegro software?
I would like to update that I found a file called "dbdoctor", and another called "dbdoctor_ui". Unfortunately I don't know how to use these. But, I've seen people say that you can use these. They are just text files though, and don't appear to do anything. Typing "dbdoctor" in a command prompt just says that isn't a recognized command.
Is this the correct location? I feel quite lost here. dbdoctor doesn't do anything, but somehow people are using it to "uprev" the file (I moved it to this location, which you can see is called "youpk75x50_1_27-smd.dra). Command prompt doesn't recognize the command "dbdoctor".
Cadence revamped the padstack library for v17.2 and beyond. Have the opposite problems with MGC Pads that forces me to keep allegro v16.6 working.
In my installation, DBDoctor in the start menu opens this program:
Is there a free Cadence software that happens to include this executable?
