Transfer Dietrichs to new computer.

Post Posted: 21.09.2018 21:44

I remember one should just copy the Dietrichs program, material database and all that and set directories etc. Is that the procedure in Windows 10?

But what about the hardlock - how to activate that?

That doesn't work.
You have to install the Software for the first time, otherwise the dongle and the database will not work.

After installing, you can copy the setting files and most other files. Be careful with files, that contain path settings, they may be wrong in the new PC.

Please note that Dietrich's can only be guaranteed to fully work on Windows 10 from version 14 upwards (see here).

Really? - it worked that way the last time - as far as I remember.

I tried the same some years ago, and it did not work until at least I installed dongle and database.

The program seems fine and complete - and I can open it. I can just not open a position, because is says that Individual hardlock key xxxxx is not found.

I had windows 10 also on the old computer and it worked fine there. Smile

Some good ideas, how to make it work? Of course I cannot afford to buy a new version and since my good ol' 7.03 worked fine before, it should also not be necessary. My good free time jobs are dependent on this program and these free time jobs are very important for me - and in the end, they could give me the possibility to afford to buy newest version of Dietrichs. And also as you all know - I love to work and draw in Dietrichs. ThumbUp I did try with this dhp.dkz file (I don't remember the exact name) and the "take over" function and I tried to just copy Kunde.dat to overwrite the file in windat. But maybe I need to do something (else?) in a specific order??

In case you don't have the actual driver installation files, you can find them in the attached zip-folders.
Please note, that this manual installation of the dongle-drivers, is no guaranty for the program to work 100% on WIN10. But the dongle recognition on your system is more likely to work with the newer drivers.

#Der_Planer: Nice try - but if I do so, it asks to insert installation CD. First of all I don't think I even have the CD, I think I just got a copy of it, at my previous work where we bought Dietrichs. And even if I had - there is no CD/DVD drive in the new computer.

#Florian: Ok thanks - I will try that.

Based on Florians files - at least it works now and I can open 3D positions and draw in 2D program. Yes, yes!! Thank you Florian!! Very Happy ThumbUp

Now I just need to figure out 1 thing: Why for example wall properties is empty. Where are they normally located?? I think I have set paths correct. But I should double check it.

And another thing: BauDaten.exe - is the material database, right? But if I try to run that program, it says that dhpdat.ini, is not found??

The wall properties in version 7 should be located in folder "HRB\ENG". The files in this folder can be replaced with the files from your other computer (but make a copy of the original files first).
"DHPDAT.INI" is a file located in folder "WINDAT". It contains all the paths for the program. If it is not there or it is empty the program cannot work. If the error message comes up only when you try to start the project data program, this particular path could be wrong. You can open the file with a text editor and look at line "DHPDBA=". Here you need to have the correct path to your database file.

About the paths - among other to wall properties - from your post i figured out what my mistake was: That I needed to go one more step, down to "ENG". Then everything seems to be good.

DHPDAT.INI: Well, the line in the file seems correct: DHPDBA=E:\Dietrich's project\Dietrichs folders, to share\DHPDBA.

What about the contents - does it look correct?
