    Re: Pro Desktop

    The regserver thing is what fixed it here. We just put it into a batch file and logged onto every machine one as domain admin ran the file and bam it worked and that was 6months ago and not another problem to this day and we have lots of problems with it!!!

    Re: Pro Desktop

    I had no problems installing the software on our machines. why did you decide to install it on the server and not the client machines?

    The joys of FlexLM by any chance? I use Mathcad and that uses that, and my applications server never gets a new box as its not financially prudent to do so so it moves boxes frequently and hence the flexlm moves and the NIC Mac changes.... you get the drift, basically its a ball ache.

    We habve had a problem with the extrude function in Pro Desktop 8 causing the app to bomb out.

    Tried everything above but in the end we have had to run as administrator prior to pupil use... it must just be the software trying to write to somewhere it shouldn't on first use.

    We had exactly the same issue.

    If I install it on a pc I have to log in and run it as an Administrator once. Before this it would just crash out when trying to extude.

    Bad software design I guess.

    There was a thread to this a while back, you have to make an .mst with orca or similar to go along with the MSI to prevent the extrude bug, either that or install it individual and run it as admin for the first time (very time consuming!)

    Is it OK to swap transforms? If so I will send you ours

    We had the exact same problem with Pro Desktop crashing out randomly when the student use the extrude function.. we tried all sorts and got nowhere; we decided to ditch Pro D this summer and have now moved to Solidworks.

    Has anyone else seen that ridicolous Pro D error where "bananas!" comes up on the screen!!?

    Had the same problem. Turned graphics acceleration off (Graphics properties, Troubleshooting tab) and it works fine, go figure!

    ..Yes, although, that "Bananas" Error is fixable. I can't remember how, but I made it go away, either the upgrade to version 2000 i 2, or installing it locally (as opposed to running from the network).

    Pro Engineer needs a License server... ... the Tech dept were wanting me to look into installing it, stil I managed to get Sibelius working from laptops to a license server, how much worse could it be ?
