Before installing any AutoPLANT product, Microsoft Access must be run once to register user credentials such as name and initials.
Failure to do this will result in an error message when previewing reports via applications such as Instrumentation & Wiring, Data Manager, Vision, Spec Gen or 2D/3D Consistency Reporter etc. Failure to do so will also result in an empty Microsoft Access window being displayed.
Pre-Requisite and Common Tools for AutoPLANT Applications V8i installation, AutoCAD must be run once whilst logged in with the Administrator account that is performing the installation.
Once the installation is complete and before users try to run any AutoPLANT application, AutoCAD must be run once more for all other user account types that will be using AutoPLANT such as Standard user accounts. This process ensures that AutoPLANT will be registered with the specific AutoCAD version that the user is running.
Once AutoPLANT is installed we recommend the use of AutoPLANT products through a Standard user account instead of an Administrator account.
The Dialog Box that appears in the left image is the one that appears as Default. But if the Users wants to install AutoPLANT Isometrics then select Isometrics as shown in the Image shown on the right side.
