Is it just me or does the layout translator not work with a binary Altium V6.0 or V5.0 file. The documention says it does but I can only get an V4 ASCII file to work.
Translator should have no problem converting with Altium 6 files. I suggest contacting CSD (Customer Support Department) as soon as possible and providing them with the database to review.
I think the issue I am confused by the translator documentation. It says it can translate a Altium AD 6.x file that is a binary or ASCII. I thought a Binary 6.0 file was from AD 6.x. I think that it is not. An ASCII file exported from Altium Designer 9.0 or 10.0 can exported PADS. The Altium says that this is a V4 file.
Can someone verify what version of Altium Designer a binary 6.0 belongs too?
Can someone verify what version of Altium Designer a binary 5.0 belongs too?
Don't have it in front of me at moment & going from memory, but I believe DXP & AD6 native binary format was 5.0
I think it was 4.0 for pre-DXP 99SE, so would have to assume 6.0 is the latets & greatest binary format.
PADS 9.3 supports Altium Designer binary 5.0 format and older.
