Question:

After crashing, Allplan does not start anymore. When you open license selection in the license settings, you can see the following message: "Cannot find a license for running Allplan." How to solve this problem?



Answer:

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.



The crash causes this problem. The fact that the license is not available is a consequential error.

Note:

If Allplan crashes often,
send the following information by email to your Allplan Support:

  1. An exact description of the last step before the error or crash occurred.
  2. The error message itself (as a screenshot). To find out how to take a screenshot, look at

Question:

  • Why can't I create elements?
  • Why can't I move a drawing?
  • Why are elements not created correctly?
  • Why does the program crash when I import a DXF file from the land registry office?
  • Why is the outline of a circumscribed area not detected correctly?
  • Why can't I calculate shadows?
  • Why are elements not displayed correctly in animation?
  • Why are parts of dimension text missing?
  • Why do the contents of the screen suddenly rotate?
  • Why can't I get a preview when I move or copy elements?
  • Why are areas not calculated correctly?




Finding the reason for these problems:

Check whether an offset is set in the project settings (File -> New Project, Open Project-> select the project and open the shortcut menu -> Properties; Allplan 2009 and earlier: Tools -> Options ->Advanced Draft -> Settings). If there are offset coordinates, clear the check box.

Select Tools -> Measure(->)Coordinates.
Click in the middle of the drawing in plan view.
If there are very large values (for example, x/y/z greater than 5000 m), you have found the reason for these problems.

The system has problems calculating and displaying data with very large coordinates. The more data you have with very large coordinates, the greater this effect.



Solution:

  • Click Tools -> Options... -> Desktop environment -> Generaland select Optimize working with large coordinates(Allplan 2009 and earlier: Tools -> Options -> Global Options -> Miscellaneous tab -> Optimize working with large coordinates). After this you must restart Allplan. Otherwise, this setting has no effect.

This is a user setting you must define separately for each user.

  • Usually, the best solution is to move the data towards the Allplan origin. Use the "Move" tool. When Allplan prompts you to specify the target point ("To point"), select Global point in the dialog line. You can find detailed information in the help for Allplan. Look for the Global pointtopic.



Note:

If the data are still not displayed correctly, do the following:
Exit Allplan -> Services application-> Service -> Hotline Tools-> cleanup -> start Allplan.

Question:

How can I change the cache path for Allplan Share?

Note:

You do this at your own risk.
We strongly recommend that you clarify all issues in advance.
Always copy a file before you change it.
Before you change registry entries, back up the registry key that you want to modify. To do this, export the key by selecting File - Export in the Registry Editor.

Answer:

Allplan Share temporarily saves the project data in the path of the local file storage, which you defined when you installed Allplan.
You can see the path of the local file storage folder in the Services application.
If this folder is centrally on a server for all Allplan workstations:
To avoid replication conflicts that might occur when several users work on the same project data, you must change the path settings for each user so that this folder is locally on the user’s computer running Allplan.

Before you start, close Allplan, making sure that you do not lose any data.

  1. Go to a local drive (C or D) of the computer running Allplan and create the new "Local data” folder with the "Allplan” subfolder (for example, C:\Local data\Allplan).
  2. Start the Windows Registry Editor as the administrator (start - run - regedit).
  3. Go to the left column of Registry Editor and open the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Nemetschek\Allplan\2018.0\InstallRoot. If Allplan 2019 or a newer Allplan version is installed, “2019.0“ or the newer version replaces “2018.0” in the path.
  4. Go to the right column of Registry Editor and double-click theLocalDataDrivekey. Specify the drive that you selected for local file storage (for example, C:). Then click OK to confirm the change. This applies the change.
  5. Then, go to the right column of Registry Editor again and double-click theLocalDataPathkey. Specify the path that you defined for local file storage (for example,\Local Data\Allplan). Then click OK to confirm the change. This applies the change. The result should look like this:
  6. Close the Registry Editor. Allplan now uses the new path for the cache of Allplan Share.
  7. Start Allplan and select the Allplan Share project to load the necessary project data into the new cache.

Question:

You want to include a computer in the Allmenu via Workgroupmanager, but no network environment is displayed and no result appears when you enter the computer name in Search. How can the computer still be included?



Answer:

All computers included in the Workgroupmanager are stored in the data.cfg on the server in the central file storage request.
The Allmenu window shows the exact path of the "central file storage folder".

e.g. \\SERVER\data\Allplan
Go via Windows Explorer to the central file storage folder in the NET folder and open the file data.cfg (e.g. with the editor)

The content of the file looks like this
SERVER \data\Allplan

(So far no computer has been included and therefore there are no further entries in this example)

Here you can enter the new path of the computer to be recorded
Simply enter the computer name, spacebar, shared folder, subfolder as a new line.
Enter only your simple host name here, not the FQDN name (first name only, without periods and other additions)

Please make sure that all entries are flush with each other. Please do not remove the space bars in existing entries and also insert a space bar after the host name when entering, these are important.

So it looks like this

SERVER \data\Allplan
COMPUTERNAME \Nemdata\Allplan

Save the file.

As a result, the computers in the workgroup are displayed in the Allmenu/Services application under Workgroupmanager - > Administer projects and computers and can now be checked out.

The original FAQ contains pictures. Use the PDF link to get the complete presentation.

Question:

What does this error message mean and how can I fix it? How can I change the
path and switch from server to local?

Response:

For the use of Allplan Share, a defined path for the "LocaldataPath" is used
for the temporary storage of the project data to be edited. In Allplan 2021, a
default setting was made so that the LocaldataPath should always be in the
Windows user folder. However, for customers who place their users on the
server, this causes the problem that 80 characters are exceeded.
Since hotfix 2021-0-3 there is a possibility to change this path to local by
creating a registry entry.


Note:

The procedure described below is done at your own risk.
Questions about this should be clarified before the practical implementation.
Always make a copy of a file before making any changes to it.
Before changing registry entries, create a backup of the registry key to be
modified by exporting the key in the registry editor under File->export.
We recommend that you have this work done by an experienced technician.


After you have installed at least version 2021-0-3 of Allplan, proceed as
follows:

Be sure to exit Allplan before making the change to prevent data loss and
errors.

On a local C: or D: drive of the computer used for Allplan, create a new folder
with the name "Local data" and the subfolder "Allplan" (e.g. C:\Local
data\Allplan) .
In Windows, as an administrator, start the Windows Registry Editor (Start->
Run-> Regedit) .
In the registry, in the left column, open the key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Nemetschek\Allplan\2021.0\InstallRoot.
In the right window, right-click and select New -> String Value. Create a
string value with the names LocalDataDrive and a string value with the name
LocalDataPath.
Now activate the edit mode for the "LocalDataDrive" key in the right column of
the registry editor by double-clicking the left mouse button and enter here
only the drive you have chosen for the local file storage (e.g. C: ) and
confirm the change with "OK". Thus the change is taken over in the registration
editor.
Then activate the edit mode for the "LocalDataPath" key in the right column of
the registry editor by double-clicking the left mouse button and enter the
additional path defined for the local file storage (e.g. \LocalDataPath ) and
confirm the change with "OK". The change will be applied to the registry
editor. The result should look as follows:



Close the registration editor. Allplan now uses the newly defined path for the
Allplan Share cache.
Restart the Allmenu and you will see the local path displayed there.

Question:

An error occurs during installation of hotfix 2015-1-11 or later. What can I do?



Answer:

To install this and future Allplan 2015 hotfixes using auto-update, you must update the installation service. Requirement: Allplan 2015-1-10 is installed.

1. You can find a batch file attached to this FAQ. Save and extract this file and execute it on every Allplan workstation (right-click this file -> select "Run as administrator" on the shortcut menu...). The batch file looks for the "InstallAULService.exe" file in the local PRG folder of the Allplan installation and runs it as the administrator. This updates the installation service.
Be careful: this requires administrator privileges.

If your e-mail program blocks this file, you can also download it from our FTP server.
Enter the following address in WindowsExplorer (do not use Internet Explorer!):

ftp://nemhotline:ha37jvg8f@ftp.nemetschek.de/download/Allplan/2015/Hotfix/2015-1/UpdAUL.bat


2. Auto-update should now work as usual.



Note:


As an alternative, you can also install the full version of Allplan 1/12/2015. This also updates the installation service.
You can download the full version fromhttps://connect.allplan.com/deor from our FTP server:

To access our FTP server, you require a current Windows operating system. Do the following:
Enter the following address in Windows Explorer (do not use Internet Explorer!):

ftp://nemhotline:ha37jvg8f@ftp.nemetschek.de/download/Allplan/2015/CD/DoWn-allplan2015-1-12-cad.zip

Download the corresponding ZIP file and extract it. Right-click the exe file and start it using "Run as administrator".
Install the update.
