Install Single-User Land F/X for Existing AutoCAD

Step 1: Prerequisites

To complete this installation, you will need:

Your Land F/X Support ID*.

*You or your office will have received your Support ID in an email from Land F/X.

The location where you will be storing your LandFX folder.

This folder will contain all data associated with your Land F/X installation and projects. In most cases, we recommend keeping our default location for your LandFX folder – directly on your C: drive (C:/LandFX).

A single office or home computer that already has a compatible CAD engine and DOES NOT already have Land F/X on a server.

Land F/X is compatible with AutoCAD, F/X CAD, AutoCAD Civil 3D, AutoCAD Map 3D, or AutoCAD Architecture, version 2013 or newer.

Land F/X is not compatible with AutoCAD LT.


If you are unsure of any of these items, please contact your IT administrator.




Step 2: Download the Land F/X Installer

Right-click the Land F/X Installer download link below.

Select "Save Target As" or "Save Link As" from the menu that appears, and save the file to your desktop.
The installer is quite a large piece of software. Please allow 5 to 10 minutes for the download to complete.




Step 3: Install Land F/X Server

Go to your desktop, and open the file complete_setup.

The InstallShield Wizard will open. You can now begin the steps to install the Land F/X Server.

Welcome Screen: Click Next.
License Agreement: Scroll down and select Accept if you agree. Click Next.
Installation Type: Select Server and Workstation. Click Next.
Support ID: Enter your Support ID.
You can find your Support ID in the Purchase or Trial Approval email you received from Land F/X.

Installing on a server?
