For users, installation is simple. All you need to do is read the requirements page, unzip the archive, and run the right script for your operating system.
On UNIX systems (Solaris, AIX, HPUX, Linux), run the DT_install_UNIX.sh shell script file.
On MS-Windows systems, run the DT_install_MSWIN.bat file.
This will start up your PCB Editor (Allegro), and run the intstallation program.
You will need to choose an installation directory where you have WRITE permission. The only directory you can't choose is the one created by extracting the zip archive. Other than that, the choice is yours.
Updating your DesignTools software is easy. If you have a previous version of DesignTools installed, then the installer will prompt you to remove the old version before proceding with the new installation.
