I want to translate an Altium PCB file to mentor pads. I used PADS Layout Translator 2007 but when I open the results in PADS, There are just some crosses and nothing is visible. I have try it with PCB v4. Newer versions are not supported with the translator.
Mentor Hyperlynx has a translator which can import any PCB file. But I don't know if it is possible to save the design in Hyperlynx to PADS Layout PCB format. Once I did this but I can not remember How!!!!
Any suggestions?

I want to open it in PADS Router. How could I save to Layout file from hyperlynx? By the way, hyperlynx translates Altium files fine.
