    Need help running a Skill Reply

    I am trying to create a Fabmaster file.  I downloaded the "cds2f.il" skill file and it worked.  I have since been playing with my env file and now it will not work.  It creates the "t.bat" and the "cds2f.txt" but then it stops.  What I figured out so far is the "t.bat" wants to run "Extracta", which requires a brd name, but it cannot find the brd.  Does anyone have any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Scott

    Delete t.bat and run cds2f.il again.

    RE: Need help running a Skill Reply

    I'm new to Skill and I'm trying to run this same file.

    I have allegro.ilinit and cds2f.il in C:\Cadence\SPB_16.01\share\pcb\etc\skill. In my allegro.ilinit file, I have only one line which reads "load (cds2f.il)" (without the quotes). When I start Allegro, I get an error that reads "E- *Error* load: argument #1 should be a string (type template = "t") - nil".

    Can you guys help me out ?

    RE: Need help running a Skill Reply

    When I type "load ("cds2f.il")", I get an error saying "E- Command not found: load (cds2f.il)".

    My license is for 'Performance option L'. Can I run Skill files ?

    Hi,

    Simply type
    load ("cds2f.il")

    Don't put double qoutes before load command.

    I didn't put the double quotes when I typed it in Allegro and still got the error.

    What license do you need to run Skill ? Will it work with Performance Option L ?

    If typing this on the Allegro command line do
    skill load("cds2f.il")
    If doing this from a Skill command window or from the allegro.ilinit file do
    load("cds2f.il")

    In Performance L you will only be able to load this at startup via allegro.ilinit
