Local Install

This section describes configuring Design Master Electrical for a local install. A local install should be used when there is only one person using Design Master Electrical in your office. All program and customization files are stored directly on the computer. This install type should be used even if the one person is installing the software on a laptop.

This install type should not be used if you have floating licenses.
