[PCB_FORUM] Re: Has anyone been able to "backrev" from version 16.0 to version 15.7?

That's what I thought might be the case and also what I was "afraid"
of......C'est la vie....

I would say since the first thing it does is uprev the database and they
went to an "object oriented database" for 16.0 there is not going back,
unless Cadence writes a downrev script.

Hi Gary,

Thanks, I see it in 15.7 to other 15.x but I am hoping that it is also in
16.0 to 15.x? or is it a major release and there is no going back?

Thanks,

Dharma

Hey Dharma,

 

No, I think I misread your post!

 

Ok, so in 15.5.7, I can go:

 

File -> Export -> Save design to 15.0.

 

or

 

File -> Export -> Save design to 15.2.

 

Do you see this option in File -> Export? This might only work within a
major release.

 

Good luck

Hi Gary,

 Thank you. I was actually looking to find out if once a board is in version
16.0 whether or not it can be opened in 15.7 and worked on by someone else.

sorry for the lack of clarity,
Dharma

Dharma,

 

Below is a post I saved from Michael Catrambone.

 

I think this is what you are looking for. I haven't tried it myself, I still
just have 15.5.1 loaded.

 

Good luck

Subject: [PCB_FORUM] Re: Switching between two versions of Allegro PCB

Importance: High

 

Hey Gary,

 

I have had great success using the Cadence Switch Release executable which
has been part of the standard Cadence install for some time now <Install
Dir>\tools\bin\switchversion.exe).  This will list all the Allegro releases
at the time of installation and you simply select the release and click OK.

I have 15.5.1, 15.7 and 16.0 loaded on the same PC and I execute the Cadence
Switch Release executable from the last loaded release and select the lower
version you would like to run.

 

The only thing that I have to worry about is the location of the PCBENV
directory for each of the releases which can be easily controlled by
re-targeting your HOME directory to a different location.

 

New to SPB 16.0, is a new Windows environmental variable

(ALLEGRO_PCBENV) that gives the ability to re-target your PCBENV directory
to a different location without having to change you HOME directory.

 

Hope this helps,

Michael Catrambone

Hi Everyone,

I thought I had seen somewhere that it was possible to take a board done in
16.0 back to 15.7 but now I am not finding any info on that...has anyone
been able to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance,

Dharma
