We recently updated our OrCAD PCB-Editor to 17.2. 

Now LE cannot build TH footprints anymore. The new Pad Stack Editor always throws up this warning:



This is the script that caused the error (just as an example, since all others behave the same way):

# Allegro script

I have already checked the psmpath and psmpath settings and the both conatin the "." in the first place (although I don't think that this is the problem here, sinc SM Parts build correctly).
I am running LE2016.10
Any ideas how to fix this?

Did you read the OrCAD PCB import instructions in the User Guide? 


Did you select the OrCAD 17.2.048 translator? 

We can do a webcast with you to get you running again.

Make sure after you installed 17.2, that you fully patched up to S052, which is the current, I believe.

You can check your patch level in Help -> About in either the Padstack Editor or OrCAD PCB Editor/Allegro. You should see an S (patch) level after the version callout.

You will also need to make sure the version in our tool is selected as 17.2.048. If you don't see that, you need to patch our tool to current also.
