The three netlist files created by Capture for PCB Editor have unusual permissions too. (My system administrators would be thrilled to hear of a better approach!)
No kidding, can't figure that one out. Can't copy across a network. Cadence? Hello? Any ideas?
Anyway, back to the original problem. I have *never* seen the issues you guys are talking about and have installed and configured OrCAD/Allegro on numerous customer sites as well as my own computers.
This is what my 'typical' netlist box looks like (see pic). The path for the symbols must be setup to your library but if you did nothing then your path is the Cadence install path.
The warnings generated may indicate what's going on.
Can you post your netlist.log and netrev.lst files?
