    I have Eagle all set up on my computer and working, but I am having trouble using the netlist to schematic utility. I created a simple test schematic (to see how the utility works) with a resistor, capacitor, and a diode, and simple connections between them. I then exported the netlist and partslist using the schematic export menu item. I then created a new project for the purpose of importing the netlist to see how well the utility works. First, I can't figure out how to use the partslist file to get the individual components into the new schematic. Thus, I manually placed the same parts into the schematic with the correct reference designators as the original schematic, but with no connections. I then ran the cmd-net-list2sch.ulp utility and selected the original netlist file, but it returns an error "Device D1 pin 1 not found". Any ideas?

    Thank you very much for your time,

    Andrew

    Andrew,
    You need to attach the netlist that you exported.
    Make sure that it has a .txt extension, or it will be rejected by the board software.

    Welcome to AAC.

    Your post asked about a different netlist problem than the original thread - http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/showthread.php?t=9425 - so now you have your own confusing thread, as I blew the merge. I completely missed that the original thread was over a year old. Pardon is begged from all.

    First, let me apologize for the PM and confusing post location.

    Other than that, I have attached the netlist and partlist files. I also attached PDFs of the original schematic (test.pdf) and the schematic without the connections.

    Thank you,

    Andrew

    Andrew,
    I don't recall ever using that ULP program before; I may have tried it out around the time I made that post over a year ago.

    However, I tried it just now, and I didn't get anywhere with it. I simply get a message that:
    "Program.ulp" not found or missing
    several times before it aborts.
    There may be something damaged in my installation. I am running an older version (4.16r2) and do not wish to upgrade to the new version.

    Yes, I got the same error until I copied the cmd-net-list2sch.ulp file from the ULP directory to the root C: drive. Then it ran, but couldn't find the components. Thanks for checking though.

    Andrew;
    I don't know why you had to copy the .ULP to your C:\root.
    This sounds like a problem for Cadsoft tech support.

    Look here:

    Direct link to the forums: http://www.eaglecentral.ca/forums/
    (you need to follow directions on the link above the forum to be able to post)

    The answer to this problem shouldn't be too complicated, but I just don't have the time to research it. The Eagle board and Cadsoft's own technical support staff should be able to give you a solution for the problem very quickly.
