A single office computer, home computer, or laptop that already has a compatible CAD engine and is not already configured to connect to 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 2017 or newer.

1B. Select "Save Target As" or "Save Link As" from the menu that appears, and save the file to your desktop.

 

Step 2: Install Land F/X Server

 

2A. Go to your desktop, and locate the file setup_LandFX_trial.exe if you saved it there. If you clicked the link directly, this file will likely be in your Downloads folder.

2D. Destination Folder

During the Destination Folder step, you'll be asked where to install the LandFX folder. Our installer will create this folder automatically in the location you choose.

The LandFX folder will need to be shared on your network, so make sure it's in an appropriate shared location and your users have full read-write permissions for that location.

 

Click Next when finished.
