Markus Baumgärtel General RFEM RSTAB

I can not open RSTAB and RFEM on my computer anymore. Nothing happens when you click on the icon. No error message will be displayed. A restart of the calculator does not help.


That sounds like a problem with the antivirus software. Presumably, the antivirus software prevents the launch of RSTAB / RFEM. It is advisable to look into the activity log of the antivirus software and define any exceptions.

In addition, you should take the following three folders out of real-time monitoring:

The program folder of RSTAB or RFEM:
C: \ Program Files \ Dlubal \ RSTAB 8.xx
C: \ Program Files \ Dlubal \ RFEM 5.xx

The data folder of RSTAB and RFEM:
C: \ Program Data \ Dlubal

The folder for the temporary data is also important (default path):
C: \ Users \ username \ AppData \ Local \ Temp \ Dlubal

This often improves performance and prevents calculation problems.
