I am using KiCad 5.0.0, after I built my schematic I annotated schematic symbols, assigned PCB footprints to the schematic symbols, then generated the netlist, and finally when I clicked on the tab of Pcbnew to layout printed circuit board it generated a blank Pcbnew file, nothing inside!

Any idea what might causing this problem, please?

Open the pcb file, hit the NET button at top and then click read current netlist. It should all show up or give you errors of why its not.

I am using an older version of Kicad, but in future you may also want to check the KiCad Info forum for answers as many have already been posted.
