Any suggestion ?

    Yep, I tried and also tried different design software, AutoCad and other similar software, but eventually it ran by boardviewer software. It's for motherboard's layout.

    While you are allowed to answer your own questions, this appears to be spammy - to me. The link is also unavailable, which could be because its blocked. If you are the author of this, you are obliged to come clean. Please read the help. Commented May 6 at 5:22
  • OK, I got you. When I added s to http it didn't open to me. But actually that's the official website. There's another one uploaded on google driver I will add it.
