When I have a schematic open and click on  Launch > Layout XL the following error pops up.






I found cdsDefTechLib in the library manager as shown below under CadenceLibs.  I need to know what to do with that!  I'm blank at the moment as I often am when using Cadence software.   As blank as when you click on cdsDefTechLib in my current state of setup as shown in the library manager there is nothing listed when I click on cdsDefTechLib


Arun created a test library and when a dialog box came up he _____ with the existing technology library  TECH_XH018.  As you see below the "test" library came up under the XFABLibs tree in the library manager


Right clicking on "test" and clicking on properties gives:


As compared with right clicking on PowerSupply which gives the following dialog box where you see that the techLibName is the generic cdsDefTechLib that is under CadenceLibs and has nothing in it.


So now I have to either find a way to take the existing design library and associate with the existing technology library TECH_XH018  or  make a new library that is associated and copy the files in.

1) Solved it by Tools–>Technology File Manager.

2) Manager –>Attach.. (Select the Design library and attach to proper technology library)
