Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Customer Support 24/7
AnswerAs a student and test user, you have the advantage of using the complete Dlubal software (except for the module DICKQ) free of charge and without any restrictions. However, the only drawback that you have to put up with is the watermark in the printout report. It can not be deactivated and should be deactivated for commercial use.
AnswerThe useful life of the student version is limited to 1 year. However, it can be extended again and again for a further year, whereby a new current enrollment certificate has to be presented in each case. Please use the following form to renew:
AnswerThe student version also supports the interface to REVIT.
AnswerWe are sorry, but the program DICKQ is currently not available as a student version.
AnswerThe RF-TENDON module can be opened via the menu bar under Additional modules → RF-TENDON (see Fig. 1). The module RF-TENODN. which serves for the subsequent cross-sectional dimensioning can be opened out of RF-TENODN (see Fig. 2).The modules are only available in RFEM. Both modules are also available in the student version.
If the authorization dialog box (see figure) does not appear when opening the programs, it is because an authorization file has already been used on this computer.
To activate the softlock licence, delete the AUTHOR.ini file. This is located in the directory C:\ProgramData\Dlubal\Global\General Data by default.
Then, start the program again. In the 'Authorization' dialog box, you can activate the licence now.
If the dialog box should not be displayed, please contact our hotline. Send in the 'authorization.txt' file, which you can create using the program menu 'Help → Authorization → Diagnostics'.
We can provide our software for the period of one year if you send us a valid proof of enrollment and a copy of your ID or passport. You can always prolong the validity of your student license by one year if you send us a valid proof of enrollment.
In addition to the manual definition of load and result combinations, RFEM and RSTAB provide the option for automatic creation of combinations according to international standards. For this, select the option "Create combinations automatically" in the "Edit Model - General Data" dialog box.
Load cases created in RFEM or RSTAB are imported, assigned to standard, and then used to generate the load or result combinations in compliance with the selected standard.
In most cases, it is not really necessary to import all generated load or result combinations. Therefore, you can reduce them automatically or manually before importing them. In this way, you can minimize the calculation time.
