    Part of the CAM350 has a skill file dstcxi.il which is a skill file to enable the link. Normally when you insatll CAM350 a line is written to your allegro.ilinit file that enables this when you start Allegro. Check to make sure that you have the following as part of your $HOME\pcbenv\allegro.ilinit file.

    ; DstCAM350() is the CAM350 Cross Probe Startup

    load( "C:/DownStreamTech/CAM350 10.7/DstCxi.il")

    a sample allegro.ilinit file is attached.

    The path for the skill file just needs to match where it is stored on your PC.
