Naviate for AutoCAD C3D 2015 has the following prerequisites:

  • A computer running Windows 7x64 or Windows 8x64 (32-bit OS is no longer supported).
  • AutoCAD C3D 2015

  • If you have bought the Naviate product(s), the license e-mail with your unique license number(s).

Download and unzip the installation files from your Naviate Community account or from the Naviate Community trial page.

Currently there are three types of licensing for the Naviate products - trial, local and network. If you are using the 30-day trial you can skip this section and go directly to the next.

Local (SLM) or network (NLM) licenses both require license numbers. When ordering any of the licensed Naviate products your will receive an e-mail with your unique license number(s), automatically sent from our license system.

If you have ordered network licenses you will need to set up a license server service on one of the servers in your local network.

NOTE:

Please follow the instructions in the license e-mail and associated video instruction carefully, and set up the license server before you start deploying the Naviate products on the workstation PCs. When the server is set up, make a test installation of the Naviate product and verify that the licensing is working properly before proceeding with the remaining computers.

Double-click on the MSI file to start the installation. Then follow the on-screen instructions, and note the following:

  • When entering customer data, please type in no-nonsense values! The information is used to simplify traceability for efficient support. You will only need to enter the information once since it is shared between all Naviate installations and will be filled in beforehand the next time you run a Naviate product installation.
  • Select the proper type of licensing and enter the license number for the correct Naviate vertical supplied in the e-mail. If you are using network licensing, enter port number@server name as mentioned in the instruction video.

1) License type can be one of the following keywords: Disabled, Trial, Local or Network

 

 

NOTE:

If you intend to test all applications, set license type to Trial. If you already know that you do not want to test some of the applications, use Disabled instead. The Trial licensing has a 30 day trial period (once) whereafter it will start requiring a license number for continued use. To disable the license request dialog after the trial period has expired, you will need to reinstall the product with the license type set to Disabled for the expired trials.
