"Error 5709 - Could not open schematic" and other problems...

I'm new to DxDesigner and currently working on a project with an FPGA-design. The project was created in PADS 9.2, but meanwhile I'm running PADS 9.3.1. I tried to pass the design on to PADS Layout (which worked fine in PADS 9.2 when it was only a few sheets), but now I get the following error:

Note 5996: Using Config  File  C:\MentorGraphics\9.3.1PADS\SDD_HOME\standard\pads93.cfg

Warning 5720: Check  MySchematic.err for VIEWBASE messages
Error 5709: Could not open  schematic MySchematic
Note 5626: Summary of Log  Files/pcb.err

PCBFWD netlisting is  completed with errors. Check pcb.err file for notes and information.



So the question now is: how do i fix that? The help is not any help at all (I cannot find a viewplac.ini file and I couldn't figure out how to create a board file using "-CreatePlacementData" in the command line).


On a different note: How can I fix "drc-120 -... Range mismatch across component" errors?


I'd appreciate any help! Thanks.
