Question:

Why does ProjectPilot open with the following error message:
"Unable to create ProjectPilot control. Is the registry correct?"



Answer:

The reason for this is usually an "external path" that no longer exists. When you start ProjectPilot,
the program tries to access the "external path", which is stored in the Windows Registry.
If this path no longer exists, you will see the above error message.

To correct this error, please do the following:

  • Services application
  • Service menu
  • Windows Explorer - CAD program folder
  • The path to the "User folder" is displayed in the window of the Services application. Open it in Windows Explorer.
  • Find the "extern.cfg"file in this user folder and delete this file.


Now try to start ProjectPilotagain. If the problem still occurs, please do the following:

Start the services application -> Service -> Windows Explorer -> CAD program folder.
Open the "PRG" folder.
Find the following file: "NemProjectPilot10.exe"
Right-click this file -> select "Run as administrator" on the shortcut menu.
ProjectPilot should now start.

Try to start ProjectPilotstraight from Allplan. If the problem is still not solved, please do the following:

  • Services application
  • Service menu
  • Windows Explorer - CAD program folder
  • The Allplan program folder opens.
  • Rename the "PRG" subfolder "PRG_OLD".
  • Start installing the program from the current Allplan DVD.
  • Select "Update installation".
  • Select "Current license file".
  • Set the setup type to "Minimum".


After installation try to start ProjectPilotagain.

Question:

Why is it not possible to install IBD planning data?
Why does Allplan not accept my activation code?



Answer:

If you have just installed Allplan or if you have used a trial license until now, start Allplan once with your license so that Allplan saves your customer number.
Make sure you install the correct IBD package.

IBD provides additional wizards you can use in Allplan. However, you have to purchase these additional wizards.
Should you have any questions (costs, use), please contact your sales partner.


Some notes on IBD:

IBD CAD Planning Data(building construction, industrial construction, ...) are wizards you can use in Allplan. Consequently, you can only install these wizards on a computer running Allplan.

IBD Building Components(building construction, building alteration, ... ) build on BCM/Nevaris.
If you use Nevaris, you must install IBD building components on a computer running Nevaris andAllplan.
If you want to use IBD building components for BCM, you must install this package on a computer running Allplan BCM.
As you can see, it matters whether you are trying to install IBD building components for Nevaris or BD building components for BCM.
You can find both packages on Allplan Connect.


Make sure you download the right package from Allplan Connect.

You get activation codes for the IBD packages you purchase.
You can see your activation codes on Allplan Connect at http://connect.allplan.com/license.

Pay attention to uppercase and lowercase letters in Setup.

You can find the IBD packages on Allplan Connect at
https://connect.allplan.com/de/support/downloads.html
(requires login details for Allplan Connect)

You can filter by version, such as Allplan IBD Version 2016.


Note:

There is no trial license for IBD. This means that you cannot install IBD if you run Allplan with a trial license.

You can install two IBD packages for free. You do not require codes for IBD CAD Basic Planning Data and IBD CAD Building Alteration Data. You can also find these packages on Allplan Connect.

Question:

The licensing service crashes regularly or does not start at all. Afterwards, no license is available. How can I solve this problem?



Answer:

Problems with the licensing service may have various causes.

If this problem occurs with specific clients only, you can find the cause on these clients. If this problem occurs with all clients, you can find the cause on the server.
Check the following points:


1. Virus scanner
The Codemeter Runtime Server service is running both on the client and on the server.

If the service is blocked on the client, this is often caused by the virus scanner.
However, this may also happen on the server.

If communication with the Wibu service is blocked, Allplan cannot find the license anymore. This is often caused by the virus scanner.
So, you need to exclude the "Codemeter" folder from virus scans. You can find this folder in the virus scanner in the following path: C:\Program files (X86)\Codemeteror C:\Programs (x86)\Codemeter. You can find the “Codemeter” folder in the following path:C:\Program files\Codemeteror C:\Programs\Codemeter.

Restart the service:

Start CodeMeter Control Center.
To do this, use the Windows start menu and select CodeMeter -> CodeMeter Control Center. As an alternative, open Search by clicking the Search button on the Start screen and enter Codemeter.

CodeMeter Control Center -> Process -> Start CodeMeter Service
If the service is running, stop it and restart it.



2. Update the CodeMeter program
Go to the Wibu website and install CodeMeter User Runtime Version for Windows (64-bit version).
You can find the installation program at https://www.wibu.com/de/anwendersoftware.html

Start the "CodeMeterRuntime.exe" file.
To do this, right-click this file and select
"Run as administrator".
Confirm all messages displayed and the defaults by clicking “Next”.
CodeMeter Control Center will be installed afterwards.



3. Other causes
Open the “C:\Windows\System32\drivers\” or “C:\Windows\SysNative\drivers\” folder and check whether this folder includes a file called "Multikey.sys". You must delete this file.
Before you delete this file, open Windows Device Manager (Control Panel) and check whether a driver called "Virtual USB Multikey X64" is installed.
If this driver is installed, uninstall it
before you delete the "Multikey.sys” file.
If this driver is not installed, delete the "Multikey.sys” file straightaway.

Note:
Sometimes, the system uses the "Multikey.sys” file in the c:\windows\system32\drivers\ folder to emulate a dongle.
This file is blacklisted by Wibu, as it interferes with the Wibu license system.

Sometimes, you can even find the "Virtual USB Multikey x64" device driver when you open Windows Device Manager.
If this driver exists, the "Multikey.sys” file will also exist.



4. Windows
The license server is based on .Net Framework. Allplan uses .NET 4.6. (Allplan 2019 and later will use .NET 4.7). Like any other Windows service, the Codemeter Windows service running on the license server depends on Windows components such as WMI. WMI depends on RPC, and RPC depends on COM distribution.

There may be a bug in Net. Framework of the operating system.
Fixing Net. Framework may solve the problem.

Check Windows Event Viewer and system information for .Net or WMI errors.
.Net may not be installed correctly,
Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> Windows Logs
Check the application, installation and system.
Windows Event Viewer -> Windows Logs -> Application may include an application error in Allplan licensing. This error may be connected with .Net Framework.
Event ID = 1026 This ID indicates an error which you may fix by repairing the installation of .Net Framework.

Fixing Net. Framework may solve the problem.
Go to the Microsoft Support website at https://support.microsoft.com/de-de/help/2698555/microsoft-.net-framework-repair-tool-is-available.
There you can find a repair tool for fixing errors in .Net Framework.


Check Windows Event Viewer and system information for .Net or WMI errors.
.Net may not be installed correctly,
Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> Windows Logs
Check the application, installation and system.




Note:
Do you have a second server? Test the license server on this sever. Install the license server on this server and activate the license there. Use the description at
https://connect.allplan.com/en/faqid/20150618134224.html
Has this solved the problems?

Question:

Can I "automate" the installation of Allplan?


Answer:

You can install Allplan 2017 in silent mode. This installation mode is fully automatic; you do not need to enter anything. Silent installation is particularly useful if you want to install Allplan 2017 with the same settings on a large number of workstations on a network.

Requirements for installing in silent mode:

Pay attention to the different licensing types!

Licensing for stand-alone workstations:
Make sure you have not yet activated a license on the computer where you want to record silent installation. Use the Viewer option for recording.

After having installed all computers in silent mode, you must use the Product Key to activate the license locally on each computer.
To activate the license after installation:

  • Open the 'License settings' dialog box: Services application -> Utilities -> License settings
  • Click License activationon the left.
  • Enter your Product Key.
  • Click Activate license.


Using a license server:

  • The clients take the licenses from a license server.
  • The license server is installed.
  • The license of the license server is activated.

For more information on the license server, go to https://connect.allplan.com/en/faqid/20150618084450.html
Use the Use active licenseoption for recording.

Setup writes the license settings to the %AppData%\Nemetschek\Lic3.ini file.You must distribute this file to all computers.


Some more tips:

  • Before you start installing, unzip the Allplan installation package (for example, using the 7_Zip program). Make sure this package is in a folder that can be accessed by all clients you want to install.
  • Start the command prompt for running the setup program always as a local administrator. To do this, open the shortcut menu and select "Run as administrator". Make sure you always start the command prompt from the correct folder.
  • Setup will automatically install any Microsoft components required by Allplan such as Microsoft .NET-Framework or Microsoft Report Viewer without prompting you to confirm.




Preparing to install in silent mode

To record and run silent installation, you need the installation files of Allplan 2017.
Installing in silent mode involves three steps:

Creating the log file for installing in silent mode

Start by installing Allplan 2017 with the /r option on a typical workstation. During installation, Setup automatically writes all entries to a log file named setup.iss. You can then use this file to install the program on the other workstations.

Installing in silent mode

Next, install Allplan 2017 with the /s option on all other workstations. Installation is based on the setup.iss log file you created in the first step.

Checking the installation

Finally, you should check the setup.log file, which was created automatically during setup, to see whether everything was installed correctly.

Note: When installing in silent mode, Setup usually uses the same setup.iss file to install the program on all workstations. However, you can edit some settings of the setup.iss file if you want to adjust paths. You can find more information in the help; see Adjusting the setup.iss filehttp://help.allplan.com/Allplan/2017-0/1031/Allplan/index.htm#331.htm


To install Allplan in silent mode, do the following:

Install .NET 4.6
Silent setup requires you to install .NET 4.6 in advance. The reason for this is that you have to reboot the computer after installation of .NET 4.6. This reboot would interrupt silent installation.


After you have downloaded the installation files, you must unzip these files before you can use them to install in silent mode.

  • Unzip the zip file downloaded. This results in an .exe file (for example, Allplan 2017-0-5-cad.exe).
  • Then unzip this .exe file using an appropriate program (for example, 7_Zip) and save the resulting file to any folder. You can now use the command prompt to start Setup.exe for recording.



1. Sample installation:
Start by creating a record file. To do this, run setup with the settings you need. You only need to do this once.

Use the command prompt to start this installation with the "/r" option (for record):

To run the setup program, open the command prompt as a local administrator and type the following:
setup.exe /r

Setup starts and runs as usual.

Stand-alone license:
When you are prompted to choose the license configuration, select the Use vieweroption.
License server:
When you are prompted to choose the license configuration, select the Use active licenseoption.


Setup logs the entire installation process, writing everything to the setup.iss file.

If you want, you can change the name and folder of this file:

setup.exe /r /f1<folder>:\Setup.iss
For example,
setup.exe /r /f1c:\Setup.iss
This saves the file directly to C:\.

Be careful:
There must not be any blanks between "f1" and the folder!

Copy the setup.iss file to a folder that can be accessed by all clients you want to install. It is a good idea to copy this file to the folder with the Allplan installation files.

License server:
Copy the %AppData%\Nemetschek\Lic3.inifile to the %AppData%\Nemetschek folder of every client.
If you install Allplan on a client for the first time, you must create the Nemetschek folder in %AppData% first (for example, C:\Users\Username\Appdata\Roaming\Nemetschek).


2. Silent installation:
Make sure you can access the setup.iss file.

License server:
Make sure the Lic3.ini file is in the %AppData%\Nemetschek\ folder.


Setup logs the entire installation process again, writing everything to the setup.log file. You can find this file in the same folder as the setup.iss file. With the /f2 option, you can specify a different folder and file name for the setup.log file.

To start installing Allplan in silent mode on a client, open command prompt as a local administrator and type the following:

setup.exe /s /f1<folder>:\Setup.iss /f2<folder>:\Setup.log

For example,
setup.exe /s /f1c:\Setup.iss /f2c:\Setup.log
This saves the file directly to C:\.

Check the setup.log file to see whether everything has been installed correctly. The [ResponseResult] section should return the &apos;ResultCode=0&apos; value.



Note:

If you have several licenses or license servers, select the required license for each client using the Services application - Utilities - License settings.

Refer to the online help for detailed information on installing in silent mode.
http://help.allplan.com/Allplan/2017-0/1031/Allplan/index.htm#321.htm
To open the help system, press the F1 key during setup. Go to the "Contents" tab, select "Installing" and then "Installing in silent mode".

You can also find information in the help for the license settings:
Services application -> Utilities -> License settings
To open the help system, press the F1 key. Go to the "Contents" tab, select "Licensing Allplan using a license server" and then "Installing in silent mode".

Question:

During installation I get an error message saying that SetupSchedTaks.exe does not work anymore.

When I try to start Allplan or the Services application, the following message appears:
The program cannot start; api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing.



Answer:

This problem is caused by missing DLl files, which are required by Allplan. These DLL files usually come with the operating system. You will only see these messages if the operating system is not up-to-date. These messages are not caused by Allplan.
Instead, this problem is caused by the KB2999226 or KB2918614 (Universal CRT) Windows updates, which contain parts of Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015. Sometimes you cannot install these updates or they are defective.

If you have not yet installed these updates, install them now. In addition, install all available updates.

If you have already installed these two updates, try to install them again.
If the operating system is configured to automatically install Windows updates, some clients report errors during installation of the KB2918614 or KB29992226 package. These errors are caused by Windows, which blocks installation of files of the Visual Redistributable 2015 package. In this case, you must uninstall or delete the updates. After this, try to install the updates again.


If you cannot install the updates, do the following:
1. Deactivate automatic updates
2. Start -> Control Panel -> Windows Update -> change the settings -> never check for updates
3. Restart the computer
4. Download and install missing updates
5. Activate automatic Windows updates again


If you still cannot install the updates, run Windows diagnostics to check your system for update problems.

You can also install the updates manually. Use the following links:

KB2918614:
https://www.microsoft.com/de-DE/download/details.aspx?id=43759

KB2999226:
https://www.microsoft.com/de-de/download/details.aspx?id=49093


Try this if you still cannot install the updates:
https://www.smartftp.com/support/kb/the-program-cant-start-because-api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0dll-is-missing-f2702.html



Note:

Regarding this error message, we cannot fix anything on the part of Allplan. These DLL files, which are required by Allplan, are an integral part of the Windows operating system.

Question:

How to install and run NemSLock Server?



Answer:

Before installing, check whether the package you received includes the following items:

  • Temporary licenses for NemSLock Server, e.g. 1234567a_001_psd.nslsrv
  • Temporary licenses for clients, e.g. 1234567a_001_psd_client.nslock



How to install NemSLock Server

  • Start the Setup program for NemSLock Server. You can find the latest Setup program on our FTP server:

ftp://nemhotline:ha37jvg8f@ftp.nemetschek.de/download/Allplan/Lizenzserver/2014/allplan2014-nemslock-lizenz.zip

  • Select one of the temporary license files for NemSLock Server. These licenses are valid for 30 days. However, each license includes only one seat of each configuration purchased. The full number of seats purchased will be available to you as soon as you have installed the registered licenses (see below). If you purchased a configuration for one seat only, you will, of course, receive only one temporary license.
  • When you opt for the “Custom” setup type, you can choose between the following program features:
    Console
    You can use this program to administer NemSLock Server. You can also install the console on more workstations so that you can administer the server from a number of different locations. However, you can only connect one console to the server at any one time.
    Server
    The actual license server.
    Logviewer
    This tool analyzes the log files of NemSLock Server.

By default, Setup installs all these features.
If you have several temporary licenses for NemSLock Server, use the server console to install the remaining licenses after the installation. The procedure is described in the section "How to install licenses".


How to register licenses

  • Open NemSLock 2006 Server Console by clicking the corresponding icon on the desktop or by selecting Start -> All Programs -> NemSLock 2006 Server -> NemSLock 2006 Server Console.
  • Click "Modules" on the left.
  • Select the seat you want to register. If your license includes configurations for several seats, you must send a separate registration request for each seat. You will then receive a registered license file for each seat. You must install each file.
  • Click the "Registration request (register.txt)" button.
  • Click "Edit".
  • You must fill out all fields marked with an asterisk (*). Make sure you enter your email address correctly, because the registered license file will be sent to this address (and not to the address of the person who sent the registration request!). Click OK to confirm.
  • Click "Create registration request". Windows Explorer opens and shows the register.txt file. If this window is closed, you can find this file in the program folder of NemSLock Server. If you installed the program to the path proposed, the path is:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Nemetschek\NemSLock Server 2006\Programs\License
  • Now you can use all the options provided by Windows Explorer to copy the registration file to a computer with Internet access on the network. Alternatively, you can also use an USB stick. You can then email this file to us.
  • Send the email with the registration request to register@nemetschek.de



How to install licenses

  • Open NemSLock 2006 Server Console.
  • Click "Stop server" on the left.
  • Click "Modules" on the left.
  • Click "Browse" to navigate to the registered license file.
  • Click "Install license file".
  • After this, you can start the server again by clicking "Start server".



How to set up users (optional)

  • predefined user ALLis created automatically. If there is no other user, each user is given the privileges of the user ALL. By default, this user can use all licenses but cannot check out any licenses. By double-clicking the user, you can change the user&apos;s privileges.
  • predefined user ALLallows all users to use licenses. In order to do this, the users must be able to access the server. You do not need to create individual user profiles until you want to assign specific rights to individual users or limit access to selected users. predefined user ALL. If you want to work only with individual users, you should deactivate the predefined user ALL by revoking the user&apos;s right to use licenses.
  • predefined user ALL has administrator privileges unless another user is created and appointed as the administrator. As soon as you have appointed an administrator, ALL no longer has administrator privileges.
  • You can enter users in the “Users.mcf” file. predefined user ALL has administrator privileges again. In addition, each user can once again administer the license server using the console.
  • The administrator user is not a special user. If there are several administrator users, only one administrator user can start the console for this license server at any one time.
  • If you are setting up users without giving administrator privileges to anyone, the program will ask you whether you want to appoint yourself as the administrator.


You can also specify a domain (user authentication for Windows server). However, this is not mandatory. If you do not specify a domain, the program uses the Windows user name for each user.

The program writes the user accounts and the associated access rights as ASCII text to the users.mcf file.

How to install and configure clients

  • Use one of the nslock license files you received to install the clients. Do not use the trial license or the license server license. It is irrelevant which of the client licenses you use, as the actual license will come from the license server later.
  • You do not need to register the clients.
  • When switching from Hardlock to NemSLock (server), you need to update the client using a nslock license file.


After having installed the client, you need to switch to the license server:

  • Start -> (All) Programs -> Nemetschek -> Nemetschek SoftLock 2006 -> License Manager
  • If the license server window is not visible, select "Configure NemSLock Server" at the bottom. Lock this window. All you need to do is click the drawing pin icon.
  • Enter the computer name or IP address of the license server in the empty box. Then click the "Update” icon to the right.
  • Now the user can select one of the seats provided.
  • After having successfully connected to the license server, clear the check boxes for the trial licenses in the area at the top.
  • Click "Close" to complete the configuration. Now you can start Allplan.



Notes:

  • If a user selects several configurations for a seat and starts Allplan, the license server will provide the required licenses; in other words, starting Allplan once might require two licenses. Consequently, fewer licenses are available to other users.
  • 2014-1 and later: If the latest version of License Manager is installed (file version 1. 0. 26. 153 or later, see License Manager- Options- System), you can also select several licenses. If one of the selected licenses is currently being used by someone else, the program will automatically select the next available license.
  • Clients communicate with the server by TCP/IP via port 10977. So you need to configure the firewall accordingly.
  • The license server and the licenses are downward compatible; they can be used in conjunction with older Allplan versions.
