  • Answer

    In order to use the softlock license on a new PC, it is necessary to transfer it from the old computer first.

    To do this, follow the instructions described in the attached instructions on page 2 ff.

  • Answer

    The directory tree in Project Manager is managed in the file PRO.DLP. This is located in the folder C:\ProgramData\Dlubal\Global\Project Manager by default. You can check the directory paths of Project Manager in the "Program Options" dialog box (click the Project Manager menu "Edit → Program Options").

    If you copy the PRO.DLP file from your old computer to the corresponding folder of the new computer, the original structure will be restored in Project Manager. It is no longer necessary to integrate the individual projects.

    Important: In order to connect the projects on the new computer correctly, the projects have to be stored in the same place. Therefore, copy the project data in the directories and folders with the same name on the new computer.

    Furthermore, you can transfer user-defined libraries:

    • Printout Report Header
      DlubalProtocolConfigNew.cfg in the folder C:\ProgramData\Dlubal\Global\General Data
    • Report Templates
      RfemProtocolConfig.cfg (RFEM) in the folder C:\ProgramData\Dlubal\RFEM 5.xx\General Data or RstabProtocolConfig.cfg (RSTAB) in the folder C:\ProgramData\Dlubal\RSTAB 8.xx\General Data
    • User-Defined Cross-Section Library
      EigProf.dat in the folder C:\ProgramData\Dlubal\RFEM 5.xx\General Data (RFEM) or C:\ProgramData\Dlubal\RSTAB8.xx\General Data (RSTAB)
    • User-Defined Material Library
      The material library consists of two files: Materialien.dbd and Materialien_User.dbd in the folder C:\ProgramData\Dlubal\RFEM 5.xx\General Data (RFEM) or C:\ProgramData\Dlubal\RSTAB 8.xx\General Data (RSTAB)

First Steps

First steps

We provide hints and tips to help you get started with the main programs RFEM and RSTAB.

Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation

With the stand-alone program RWIND Simulation, wind flows around simple or complex structures can be simulated by means of a digital wind tunnel.

The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.
