Re:      Protel 99SE w/ or w/o sp6
         Windows 2000 pro

Hi:

I have found that when Protel is installed on a Win 2k machine, "MY
COMPUTER"/"MANAGE" stops working. It causes a message that one of the files
is missing. Furthermore, many of the Windows 2K resource kit also stop
working. Removing Protel and restoring the registry fixes the problem.

Has anyone else seen this? Does anyone know how to fix it?

Regards
Ken

Subject: [PEDA] How to set the Auto-Placer to avoid superposing
component ?


Hello,

My PCB only contains 55 components, so I use the "Cluster Auto Placer" (but
I have not checked the Quick Placement option).
I have set the placement Design Rules so I should get a 1 mm component
clearance.
I have also specified that component must be placed on the Top Layer, in a
Room.

But when I launch the Auto-Placer, What I get is clusters of superposed
components, mainly outside the Room (they should be inside).

What can I do to get my components properly placed ?

And how can I know that the autoplacement is complete ?

And last : is it possible to open another design while the autoplacer is
running ?

Thanks in advance
