Question

During the CIP 17.4 Client installation there is a prompt for a “Path to Footprint View”. I do not know what to enter into this field?


Solution

There are two ways you can add the Footprint Viewer to CIP. 


To add the footprint viewer to your CIP client, browse to the Client installer, which is by default C:\Cadence\SPB_17.4\tools\bin\ allegro_free_viewer.exe.


Alternatively, if the CIP Client is already installed, open Capture and the CIP tab.  Enter the path to the allegro_free_viewer.exe into the CIP Settings.
