DesignCAD 3D Max 17.1 Update (repackaged for Windows Vista)
« on: April 02, 2007, 09:46:56 AM »
The 17.1 updater was not working correctly under Windows Vista. We have repackaged the installer and it now seems to be working correctly. A test version is available here for those who have experienced this problem:

Since the previous 17.1 patch (when used under Windows Vista) left DesignCAD with an improperly matched set of files we recommend the following procedure:

1)If you haven't already done so, uninstall DesignCAD 17.0, then re-install to the following folder:
c:/Users/Public/IMSI/DesignCAD 3D Max 17   (i.e. change "Program Files" to  "Users/Public" in the default location)
Be sure to install using an Administrator account, and perform the program activation (if requested) while Administrator.

2) Download the 17.1 update patch from the above location. Check the file size after download! If the exe download file size is not correct as shown on the dowload page, try downloading the zipped version instead.

3) Install the 17.1 update using "Run As Administrator" from an Administrator account.

4) Once the 17.1 patch is installed correctly, the existing 17.2 patch available from Help/Online Update should work just fine. This update should also be run using "Run As Administrator" from an Administrator account.
