    footprint script fail Reply

    I have a problem when I want to import a footprint through Ultralibrarian software. Ultralibrarian exports a library including a script file to run at Allegro PCB software. The problem is that I run the script an error is produced. "Can't find window; Form.padedit"

    Someone was happen some like that?

     regards

    You have a mismatch between your version of Allegro and the version that Ultralibrarian expects. I don't think that Cadence guarantees that scripts won't change between releases so the Ultralibrarian developer should have avoided using this method if possible.

    Ok, thanks for your reply. Texas Instruments for example uses bxl files for provides the footprint for your products. If I can't use Ultralibrarian to export a Allegro format, how I can proceed for get the footprints models? It is a shame if we can't use bxl files, because exists a lot of models in bxl format.

    UltraLibrarian appears to use 14.x. Try using the earliest version of Allegro you can get your hands on for the import..
