Robert Vogl Installation RFEM RSTAB SHAPE-MASSIVE SHAPE-THIN

How can I transfer the project data and settings of my older PC to a new PC?

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)
