File left open and serial no.


running 4 serial numbers of VWA 11.0

2 on XPPro and 2 on win98se

all the mcd files are stored on 1 hard drive which is shared as 1_Shared CAD files

the shared folder is then mapped as a drive on each box

1. do I need to enter all 4 serial numbers on each box? and

2. We have 1 file that gives error

-49 ......-FSOPEN when trying to open with only 1 license open at a time.

to recover I copied the file to a new folder

and it opened

tried to "save as" using same name - and got the FSOPEN error

"saved as" with a new name and it worked.

I can we avoid the FSOPEN problem???

The -49 error is either because the file is open on another computer, the file is located on a CD, or the file only has read permissions rather than read/write.

You should only install one serial number per computer, but you can add all 4 on all 4 computers.
