Ram Elements users who do not also have RAM Structural System may not have the very latest Finite Element Analysis engine (RamFe.dll) with minor fixes.
In a few isolated models, instability errors have been produced in RAM Elements v13.02.00.99 with the old RamFe.dll that are not produced in the same version with the new RamFe.dll.
To update this component, first install Ram Elements 13.00.00.22 and then 13.02.00.99 normally.
1. Download the ZIP file containing new RamFE program files using the link below:
2. Close out of all RAM programs.
3. Extract the contents of the ZIP file to the following location and replace the existing files.
Windows 64 bit operating systems
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Bentley\Engineering\FEA
Windows 32 bit Operating Systems
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Bentley\Engineering\FEA
4. Download the BAT file using the link below and double-click to run which will register RamFe.dll.
Optionally, to manually register RamFe.dll go to the command prompt and type "run" and Enter to start the command prompt dialog. Then type:
regsvr32 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Bentley\Engineering\FEA\RamFe.dll"
(regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Bentley\Engineering\FEA\RamFe.dll" on 32 bit machines)
Followed by Enter. If successful you should get this message:
Restart Ram Elements and confirm using Help (?) – About – Modules that RAM FE is now Version 10.2.1.0
