Feasibility in translating .job files to gerbers

Question asked by Luckii on Jul 2, 2014

I have old designs .job files which  had been designed using PADS Perform ( 1993 version approx ) DOS version and software license key is not avialable.Presently have a need for manufacturing these
legacy design for huge volume production run without any design cleanup or modifications.


Is it feasible to translate the .job file ( PADS Perform 1993 ) directly to gerber files or altenatively  .job file to .pcb ( PADS 9.5 ) format so it shall be processed for gerber generation without rework involved in this process.
