Hmm, can't seem to get the error message to past here. It says "ERROR(SPMHOD-36): Cannot open drawing. The database type is not appropriate for viewing in this product."
I had the exact same issue. Dont run the app that the installer puts in your startup menu. Go into the install directory, and run this app:
\Program Files (x86)\Cadence Design Systems\Allegro Free Physical Viewers 16.5\tools\pcb\bin\allegro_free_viewer.exe
That viewer displays the .BRD file!
