    Allegro PCB Design GXL Can`t open a board file Reply

     Dear fellows, I have been working with Allegro PCB Design GXL software for a while,unfortunately, last night, I ran into a problem which is beyond my knowledge to solve. So I looking for your help

          I worked on a PCB board design which I have devoted my passed days to. Suddenly I realise that the software behavior unusually, so I closed it and reopen it. Unfortunatelly, one error occurred to it. The error message says:'Program has encountered a problem and must exit.The database will be saved(if applicable). obtain the latest update from Cadance  and if the problem persists, contact Cadance support'

         I tried to use the software to open other design file, and it worked normally. So I don`t know what I have done to my Board File. What I can do to fix this problem?

    P.S.: I have try to move my design file to other places, but the problem is still not solved. So I think the problem  may not have anything to do with its directory format

    Try to run the DBDoctor on the file. Start>Programs>Cadence>Release {whatever}>PCB Editor Utilities, set all the boxes, browse to the board file, set a different board filename as the output and "Check", see what you get.

    I have tried that mathod. Unfortunately, the DBDoctor software encounters the same problem with the same error message. I find the same file name with extension of '.sav'. Does it mean that my design file has gone broken, and can not be restored?
