I have installed the Dlubal Software programs including add-on modules as an Administrator. On this account, the programs run without any problems. However, if I sign in as a User on my computer, I can no longer access the Dlubal Software programs.

Answer

The installation of the Dlubal Software programs RFEM, RSTAB, SHAPE‑THIN, and others, require the administrator rights. It is recommended to use the administrator rights as well when starting the software for the first time. If there is no error message is displayed, you can also assign the rights for running the Dlubal Software programs to other users. User rights can only be assigned by the administrator.

Rights for Folders

A user of Dlubal Software programs needs write and read access permissions for the following folders:

  • Dlubal Software program folders RFEM 5.xx, RSTAB 8.xx, SHAPE‑THIN 8.xx, RX‑TIMBER 2.xx, etc. By default, they are located in the directory C:\Program Files\Dlubal (or C:\Program Files (x86)\Dlubal for SHAPE‑MASSIVE).
  • Dlubal Software master data folder General Data. Each program has the own master data folder. You can find the folder in the directory C:\ProgramData\Dlubal.
  • Folders of Dlubal Software projects
  • Folders of temporary files. By default, these folders can be found in the directory C:\Users\"login name"\AppData\Local\Temp\Dlubal. The path of the working directories can be checked in the Program Options dialog box in RFEM/RSTAB (see Figure 01).

You can assign the rights using the Explorer: select the folder and open the properties. In the Security tab, you can then define full access for a User group or for a selected user, for example (see Figure 02).

Rights for Registry

In addition, a user needs the write and read access permissions for the following registry entries:

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\DLUBAL
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\DLUBAL
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DLUBAL

These rights can be assigned in the registry editor, which can be opened by entering regedit in the start menu text box. Set the path and select the DLUBAL entry. Using the menu "Edit → Permissions," you can the define full access for a User group or for a selected user.
