Configure AutoCAD

After the software is installed, AutoCAD needs to be configured. If you have multiple versions of AutoCAD on your computer, this needs to be done for each version of AutoCAD.

To configure AutoCAD:

  1. Open the install.dwg file in the Admin folder where the Design Master Electrical RT Add-in for AutoCAD is installed. The default install location is C:\Program Files\Design Master Software\Admin.
  2. Type appload at the command line.
  3. Browse to the Admin folder. The default install location is C:\Program Files\Design Master Software\Admin.
  4. Select the elecrt-loadInAutoCAD.vlx file and press the Load button.
  5. Press the Close button.
  6. Press the Local button. The Network and Network Laptop buttons are used when installing the software for multiple users.
  7. The folders should all be set correctly. Press the Ok button to finish the configuration.

Installing Updates

To install an update to the software, download the installer from above and run it.

You need to have AutoCAD closed when you run the update installer.

None of your existing customization will be overwritten during the update process.

Limited Privileges Installer

Some Windows configurations that limit install privileges do not work well with our installer. We provide this limited privileges installer to help with those cases.

First, download and run the regular installer from above.

After you have run that installer, download and run the limited privileges installer:
