    Hi, i'm new to pcb design tool , i received some .brd and .dra and .psm file from my friend for my practice, he did this on Allegro sp 16.6 but i'm using Allegro sp 16.5 lite. when i open those file i receive the following error.

    ERROR(SPMHOD-29): Unable to open design because database was saved under a newer release and contains features not compatible with this version of software. See the newer release's documentation for any conversion capability.

    Pls help me to solve this error.

    You need to download and install version 16.6 Lite version, or get your friend to export the files as an earlier version File>Export>Downrev Design. If you get the design downrev'd you can export the libraries with using File>Export>Libraries. Version 16.5 tools won't open files created with later versions.
