Run Eagle and open your schematic file. Then click on ULP button and choose file "Eagle_to_DipTrace_SCH.ulp". It is usually in "C:\Program Files\DipTrace\Utils" folder. Software will ask you to save the ASCII file, you should enter file name and path.
Then close Eagle, open DipTrace Schematic, select "File/ Import/ DipTrace ASCII" and choose the file you saved before.

DipTrace can't import files from Protel, but it supports PCAD ASCII format. If you can convert files from Protel to PCAD (I think it must be a way to do it because both CADs were developed by the same company), you will be able to import them to DipTrace.

Hello!

I couldn´t convert the files PCAD from protel, just let me export files on ORCAD schematics and ADVANCED schematics, but these files dont´t can import to DipTrace.

Do you have any other solution??

Import OrCad schematics and Advanced schematics to DipTrace are not possible.
It seems Eagle can import Protel files, I met corresponding ULP on their web-site in past. You can try to convert files to Eagle, then import them to Diptrace. But I don't know what you will get in result.

What is your eagle exact version? Mine is 5.91.1. I would recommend you try this in a vm-machine. Share a folder with virtualbox and there you can put the converted lib. It may helpful.
