I'm trying to open my GDS layout in Virtuoso after exporting it from SoC encounter. In the export I merged the GDS files of all std cells as well as the map file.

When I streamIn in Virtuoso, I attach the std cell library which was used in encounter. Then I get the complete design in virtuoso but in drawing with no metal fill at all and I get the LSW window with all metals as drawing only.

I'm using Nangate Open Cell Library 45nm. Obviously there is a problem with the display.drf file but I don't know how to import/ merge it and in case of merge what should I merge it with ? and will this fix the problem of drawing ?

The 1st pic is the layout in encounter, 2nd is the imported layout in Virtuoso, 3rd is the display error in virtuoso terminal

should I include the display.drf file in any step ? or just revise my map file to check layers and metals ?
