To install, download and run the setup file.
Install from a user account or as an administrator (right click the install file and run as administrator).
The target install directory will default to a writable location (My Documents folder) for a user installation however other writable locations can be chosen.
If installed with administrator privileges, each user who logs into the workstation will be setup when they next start an AutoCAD® session.
Following installation, start AutoCAD® or BricsCAD to complete the setup. If it’s a first time installation, a new menu titled ’PlantMan’ will load and a sample drawing will open.
You can also manually install to a network location which can be shared among different users. This involves moving library files after an initial workstation setup.
All workstations can then set up PlantManager by browsing to the installation folder and using the Appload command to run the ’pm_setup.vlx’ file.
Please email if you would like further information about this option.
If there’s an existing installation of PlantManager, reinstall to the same directory.
This approach should be taken if an update is being performed or if both AutoCAD® and BricsCAD are installed on the same system.
To uninstall, take the following steps.
Type ’Menuload’ at the command prompt, select the ’Landscape’ or ’PlantMan’ item in the window and click the Unload button.
A new installation of the software can be made to the same or a new location.
