Hi all!
Is there any chance to convert schematics, pcb-layouts and if necessary the libraries from the old 32bit orcad386 to a newer program like Protel99SE and/or PADS Flow? I own all these programs, and want to update my old orcad schematics and layouts. It would be very nice if anyone knew an answer!

I did very much research, but i couldn't find any useful information.

Thank you in advance and best regards, Walter

Hello! I have OrCad DOS v4.4, and want to get my outdated files (*.sch, *.lib, *.bd1) to a newer format and for newer programs.
I have downloaded a trial version of orcad v16, but its unable to open the old files.

Thank you for your help, i appreciate it very much!


EDIT: i just read, that ORCAD v9.2 can open these "old" schematics without problems and save them in a new format. Can anyone confirm this? and where do i get the outdated OrCad v9.2 version from?


Thanks, Walter
