I have build a VB program that builds a schematic and board file based on some user inputs. I am seeing a problem during the board build section. I am using the command line interface to open a blank Allegro board file and run a script which runs a SKILL file that builds up a complete board. The problem I am seeing is that the build of the board is sometimes very slow. If I open Allegro seperatly, run the script with the File -> Script command the program runs much faster. I have looked online and there are mentions of memory issues with command lines.
Has anyone else seen this problem or does anyone know of a faster way to open a board file and build it up with a SKILL program.
Thank you for your response. I considered that option but the -nographic switch is not available on a windows system according to the v16.3 documentation. Has this chnaged for v16.5.
