FIXED – Issues when generating ODB++ netlists using Altium Designer 17.0

The original post referred to an issue with Altium Designer 17.0. This issue was fixed in Altium Designer 17.1.5. Using the current version of Altium Designer to update ODB++ netlists created in Altium Designer 16 or earlier will no longer cause problems with your XJTAG project. However, if you have created an XJTAG project using a netlist exported from Altium Designer 17.0 then updating your netlist from 17.1.5 will probably break your project (although it may make previously broken features of the project begin to work.) If this affects you please feel free to contact XJTAG Support for advice on the easiest way to adjust your XJTAG project to work with the fixed ODB++ output. […]
