Hello,
We have a schematic and PCB file which is in PCAD.
Do you know if I can import this (schematic and PCB) into Altium version 10.771.23139?

If so, can I extract the components footprints into Altium and make library components from it?

At the moment, I don’t seem to be able to open the SCM or PCB in Altium, also I don’t seem to be able to find a PCAD viewer.
Do you know where I can find one?

B.G. thanks but all those libraries and service packs require the installation of PCAD, and its not possible to find PCAD anywhere to download?
