I have downloaded the installation of the RFEM program and I would like to try the program as a demo version first. Unfortunately, the program cannot be saved. What am I doing wrong?


The program is most likely run as Viewer. After the installation, there should be two icons on your desktop: Dlubal RFEM 5.23 and Dlubal RFEM 5.23 Viewer. Run the program by using the Dlubal RFEM 5.23 icon, without the Viewer extension.
The second reason might be that you have exceeded the number of the elements allowed for the demo version. The demo version can contain 12 members, 2 surfaces, 2 patterns, or 2 solids, so that the model can be calculated and saved.
