Hi all, I'm getting the same kind of permission error as the guy from
this old thread about importing a BMP:
Can't open C:\Program Files(x86)\EAGLE-5.12.0\bga256_package.scr
(using the default GUI values that make_bga.ulp fills in for me, no changes)
I'm not sure what to do. I removed all $EAGLEDIR things in my directory
options, so I don't expect it to be looking there for anything.
As the solution for the thread I linked to suggests, I've made it so
there should only be directories for libs, projects, ulps, scripts, etc.
in the place where I am able to make edits. But It's still trying to go
into the root Eagle install dir for the script file it wants to write out.
I am using Eagle 5.12.0 Pro, trying to make a library package using this
BGA ulp, using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.
The directory location of my library is:
The contents of my directory options window is:
Design Rules: F:\documents\billt\projects\eagle\DesignRules
User Language Programs: F:\documents\billt\projects\eagle\ulps
CAM Jobs: F:\documents\billt\projects\eagle\CAMjobs
So, with all the C:\... tool install dir stuff removed already, how do I
get through this?
I run this by starting Eagle and opening my library, which I have
written a small description for, and do have a bga256 package name
defined and saved, but is empty on the footprint layout screen. I've
tried this from the empty bga256 footprint screen, as well as fromt eh
library screen without opening any packages/symbols/devices. Same error
(P.S. I do plan to upgrade to Eagle 6.x Pro when my finances give me a
break, but someone I am collaborating with on some of this design has
5.x and last I heard no plans for 6.x. so I'm sortof stuck with 5 anyway)
I really do appreciate some help with this. I intend to meddle with a
very large 43x43 BGA (reference design is 20 layers, I hope to reduce
that to at least no more than Eagle 5's 16 max. Does 6 go above 16 now?)
