    version 6.4 LTspice schematic importing into EAGLE

      I've just been reading the release notes on EAGLE 6.4 and read you can import LTspice Schematics into EAGLE.

       

      This is great, as I tend to use LTspice alot for simulating circuits.

       

      However, when i try to impotr the .asc LTSpice schematic file I get an error window pop-up:

       

      Eagle: import-accel.ulp

       

      Wrong file signature: Version

       

      <pressed ok>

       

      Followed by:

       

      Error:

       

      Can't find ' <insert directory here>\<LTspice schematic name>.scr'

       

      which to me sound like your supposed to export something from LTSpice, which spits out a script file to run in EAGLE.

       

      Can't find anything in LTspice that does this so am a bit stumped.

       

      Can anyone help?

          I've had a bit more uck that you.

          I'm not sure about the first error - but I think you are misinterpreting the seond error. I think Eagle creates the scr file as an intermediate script file while doing the import.

          In my case - I had some permissions problems while Eagle tried to generate the "scr" file.

          You can either change the folder where it writes the scr file - or run eagle "as administrator" in windows 7 so it breates the scr file without problems.

           

          I really don't know what caused your first error. I didn;t see that.

           

          I found this section helpful:

          Though I think the "ulp" is now included in V6.4.
