autotrax dos

Hiya! Thanks for having a look at my post.

I am wanting to convert my Pr0tel DXP PCB design into a format which the DOS version of AutoTrax 1.61 can read.

It does not seem to be a straightforward conversion :( ie. I can't just use the SAVE AS command in Pr0tel DXP.

I am able to export from Pr0tel in the ASCII format as PCB FILE 6 VERSION, but AutoTrax seems to want version 4. Grrrrrr!

I'm not too sure about the Pr0tel 3.0 binary file, as the conversion utility in EasyTrax does not seem to want to read it.

Any ideas as to what software i would have to use to make a successful conversion?


Any help would be brilliant.

Thanks for your time.

- Mark

autotrax pcb v2.8

I save as PCB V2.8 then open the file in PCB V2.8 and save as Autotrax.
You can probably get 2.8 with kazaa or some other file sharing software.
