Step 1: Prerequisites
To complete this installation you will need to know:
The location of your LandFX folder: Is it on your office server or on a central office server?
If your LandFX folder is on a central office server, what is the name of your database server?
Run the workstation installer to either:
Install Land F/X on a workstation in an office where Land F/X is already installed on a central server.
Repair a problem with your existing Land F/X installation.
The following issues can be resolved by running the workstation installer:
You receive an "Unknown Command" or "Functionality is locked until Land F/X is loaded" error message when attempting to use one of the Land F/X tools
You do not see your Land F/X menus in CAD
Your Land F/X icons appear as question marks
Your Land F/X icons are outdated (missing the Color Render tool, etc.)
Running the latest installer does not require you to uninstall Land F/X.
Issues and Errors?
Step 2: Download Installer and Place It in Your LandFX Folder
Right-click the Workstation Installer (Setup64.exe) 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.
Find the setup64.exe file you just downloaded.
Drag it into your LandFX folder, replacing the existing one.
Then run the setup64.exe file from your LandFX folder.
If your LandFX folder is on an office server, drag and drop the installer file (setup64.exe) into the LandFX folder on your server and run the file from there.
Does your server have an X through it? Just double-click it and restart CAD. The X will go away, and you'll be able to open your server.
Step 3: Start Installer
Take a look inside your LandFX folder. Does it contain a file named LandFX.vlx?
Open the setup64.exe file in your LandFX folder and follow the instructions to install Land F/X.
If you receive a Program Maintenance message asking whether you want to Modify, Repair, or Remove the program, select Modify and click Next.
