    I didn't. All I did was put the msi, ini and lic file in the same location and it was happy.

    If the floppy with your .lic is not working, contact TechSoft and they should be able to supply a new disk. They've always been quite helpful when I've dealt with them.

    Hey guys.

    A number of our laptops after reimaging have an error when 2D Design starts up.

    "R6002 Floating point error"

    Any ideas at all? Might have something to do with the licensing, the hardware hasent changed in years and was not a problem before.

    Cheers! Rob.

    Morning all,

    I'm just playing around with pushing out 2D Design V2 via MSI (which is working perfectly) and am trying to configure the drawings directory to the user home areas (N drive) for when they save but it's not working. Should I be setting the drawings directory to just 'N:' or maybe '\\server\%user%' ?

    Thanks

    This is what our ini file says:
    Code:
    InitialLoadDrawingsDirectory=Program directory\Drawings
    InitialSaveDrawingsDirectory=My Documents
    So possibly just "My Documents" to meet your needs

    Sorry to dig this back up....

    We can install the license file fine as admin or staff members, but you cant install the license file as a student due to restrictions on the accounts.

    I have lifted the lockdown policy, installed the license file, reapplied restrictions to account and its asking for the license file again...any ideas?

    I ideally we want v2 on our WDS image we are currently building pre licensed as we have a site license

    You just include the licence file in the install folder.

    I think you need to run the app as an administrator once to pick up the file from the install directory, after that it should run as a student

    We just had this issue on a number of machines; it shows students as unlicensed, but worked fine after the program was run as an admin.

    Thanks guys!

    Sorry i didn't explain that too well. If you logon as an admin or staff member, you can install the license file, however it doesn't work when logged on as a student account, it asks for the file again then comes up with an error.

    I will put the license file in the root 2d design folder and try again tomorrow.
