    The default path for the company logo is C:\ProgramData\Dlubal\Global\General Data\Logo.bmp.

    This path should appear automatically in the printout report header settings, see the figure.

    Image 01 - Path of Company Logo

    The path for the customer logo should also be visible and editable in the registry under Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\DLUBAL\AUTHORIZATION.

    As an alternative, please save your company logo in the bmp format and under the name "Logo.bmp" in the directory C:\ProgramData\Dlubal\Global\General Data.

    The title block of the printout report is created using the authorization file, which was used in the initial installation of our programs. 
    A subsequent change in the authorization file does not necessarily change all report headers immediately.

    For the changed title block to be created as default in the authorization file, the "old" one has to be removed first.
    To do so, please delete the file "DlubalProtocolConfigNew.cfg" in the following (default) directory:
    C:\ProgramData\Dlubal\Global\General Data

    While deleting the file, our applications must be closed!

    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.
