    It's not available on SourceLink yet - should be there in the next week or so. It is available in your SPB 16.0 installation though, so if you've already installed Allegro there should be a allegro_free_viewer.exe in $CDSROOT\tools\pcb\bin

    Change the following environomental variable values and it will work:
    1. Variable name : HOME
    Variable Value: C:\Program Files\Cadence Design Systems\Allegro Free Physical Viewer 16.0\share\pcb\text
    2. Variable name : CDSROOT
    Variable Value : C:\Program Files\Cadence Design Systems\Allegro Free Physical Viewer 16.0\tools\pcb\bin
    "C" in the above links should be the directory of your operating system.

    Best Regards,
    Kishore

    I am still using 15.5.1 . If I change the environment vaiables as suggested wouldn't this "break" 15.5.1 . I looked at the release switch and 16 is not there. Would I be able to manually change the vatiable for the viewer and then have the release switch to get me back to 15.5.1?

    Thanks!

    Mike
