Installation Settings

The Installation Settings command is used to display the current installation settings. It can be used to verify the installation settings are correct, and modify them if necessary.

To view and modify the installation settings, go to

DM HVAC->Help->Installation Settings

There are three different installation types.

Local

A local install should be used when there is only one person using Design Master HVAC 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.

See the Local Install section for more information about this install type.

Network

A network install should be used when there are multiple people using Design Master HVAC in your office. The program files are stored on the computer and are automatically updated from the network. The customization files are stored on the network and are shared between users.

See the Network Install section for more information about this install type.

Laptop

A laptop install should be used if the computer is a laptop and multiple people are using Design Master HVAC in your office. The program files are stored on the laptop and are automatically updated from the network. The customization files are stored on both the network and the laptop. The network customization files will be used when the laptop is connected to the network. The local customization files will be used when the laptop is away from the office and disconnected from the network.

See the Laptop Install section for more information about this install type.

The local customization will automatically be updated with any changes to the network customization once a day. Use the Update Laptop Customization command to manually update the customization stored on the computer. See the Update Laptop Customization section for more information.
