While I haven't seen this exact issue, whenever things stop working properly (like scripts not executing) I'll rerun the MGC SDD Configurator. After waiting several minutes for it to complete that usually fixes the problem.
I typically only see this problem after I run 2005. After that the scripts don't run until after I run the Configurator.
We decided to uninstall/install PADS. Now it works.
I'll remember your suggestion next time. That might do the trick as well.
Tried running the configurator. It didn't help.
Layout still couldn't start the Router.
Only thing that helps seems to be uninstall-install.
I am having this problem as well. I really don't want to uninstall / reinstall - I'm sure that will take a lot of time, and it may not even work since I've applied several updates since my original install.
There must be a way to fix this? I think I caused this by allowing another program to associate itself with PCB files. I fixed that - so Pads is associated with PCB, but it didn't solve this problem.
I tried running that SDD tool, didn't do anything either.
There must be a setting somewhere - please Mentor, figure this out.
Without that connectivity between layout and router, what is the proper way to move between them? Do I need to close the file in layout, then open it in router, and vice-versa?
