Tips & Tricks
When you install an update within a version series (for example RFEM 5.01.xxxx), the old program files are deleted and replaced by new ones. The project data of course remains unchanged. If you update to the next version series (for example RFEM 5.02.xxx), the new version is, unlike in RFEM 4, installed in parallel. The program files are stored in different directories.
In case of a 64‑bit operating system, we have the following RFEM default folders:
- RFEM 4: C:\Programs (x86)\Dlubal\RFEM4
- RFEM 5.01: C:\Programs\Dlubal\RFEM 5.01
- RFEM 5.02: C:\Programs\Dlubal\RFEM 5.02
- RFEM 5.03: C:\Programs\Dlubal\RFEM 5.03 etc.
If you just want to use the current version 5.xx, like in RFEM 4, you can remove the old version series. To do this, click Control Panel -> Uninstall Program.
