Install F/X CAD 2014

To complete this installation, you will need:

Your Land F/X Support ID*.

Your Serial Number and Product Key*.

*You or your office will have received your Support ID, Serial Number, and Product Key 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.


• Will your LandFX folder be stored on a central office server? If so, what is the server name, and where on that server will your LandFX folder be stored?

• Do you have Land F/X installed on a home computer or laptop, or on a computer in an office where Land F/X will not be installed on a central office server? In most cases, we recommend keeping our default location for your LandFX folder – directly on your C: drive (C:/LandFX).
