CodeMeter Stick

How can I update my FluidDraw P5 Professional installation on my CodeMeter USB stick?

The root directory of the USB stick contains the file “start.exe”. Run this file and choose the last option “Check for updates”. Unless the stick already contains the most recent version, an update will be downloaded and installed on the stick.

In the case, the stick has been formatted or the file “start.exe” does not exist or is corrupt, you can just copy the setup/update to the stick and run it from there.

Can FluidDraw be installed on a network drive?

Due to additional security concepts for modern Windows applications, running programs directly from a network sharing or network storage is not possible. In order to prevent that malicious programs are distributed over the network, extended security settings are required for trustworthy programs. The FluidDraw setup can optionally make these settings. In this case it is necessary to run the “Client Installation” on each PC from which FluidDraw should be started as non-local installation. Proceed thereby as follows:

  1. Run the “Server Installation” and install FluidDraw in a location, where the Client PCs have read permissions.
  2. Run the “Client Installation” on each workstation and leave the option to set the required execution rights selected.

Note: With the “Client Installation” no files are copied on the local hard disk, but only a link to the network drive is created. This means in particular that later program updates only have to be installed on the server, while no special action on the individual workstations is necessary.

How can the language of the attributes under catalog properties or custom properties be switched?

The Version FluidDraw S5 - Starter does not support this language change.

In Version FluidDraw P5 - Professional it depends on:

  1. What is the page’s catalog language? If there is set a language you can also change the language there.

  2. What is the project’s catalog language? If the option “Inherit from parent node” is enabled, and the page is part of a project, the language can only be defined in the parent project properties.

  3. What is the global program catalog language? If the page does not belong to a project or the option “Inherit from parent nodes” is disabled, the language of the product catalog is applied, which is set under Tools => Options => Language.
