Hi Phil, still kicking I see.
Thanks for the reply! Hugh Stevenson and Dennis Saputelli too, thanks.

I wish it was the keep-out layer problem. I've had that problem in the past so that 
was the first thing that occurred to me, but no such luck.
I've tried everything I can think of. I may need to start the pcb layout again.

Hello Dave,
I usually don't use the autorouter, but have seen this occur when the keepout layer is 
not correctly defined. More of a keep-in approach with an outline on the 'keepout' 
layer defining the area in which the autorouter can work.
I think that arcs and gaps can be a problem.

regards,

Phil.

Has anyone out there ever experienced the wonderfully informative message "Unable to 
Initialize" when trying to autoroute.
I really need some hints on what can cause this error. The Protel knowledge base comes 
up with nothing.
I am running 99SE SP6 on a Win NT4 machine, designing a 6 layer board (4 sig. 2 pwr.), 
not particularly dense.
