cadence cross probe layout

i am trying to open a .DSN schematic file and a .BRD layout file.
how can i cross-probe my schematic to the layout? do i need more files other than these to perform cross-probe?

i have tried to open the schematic file using OrCAD Capture 10.5 & the layout using Allegro PCB editor, one after the other, but unable to cross-probe between them. i am using Cadence Allegro v15.5.

cross probe cadence

Assuming that you are using two monitors side by side,

first make sure that in capture "enable Intertool Communication" is selected.
Also try do a net list from Capture to Allegro you do not have to update your board file and finally make sure your net work connection is enabled too, sometimes this prevents from cross probing.
