12d Model installation notes

The customisation content is packaged as a self-extracting zip (TMR12dCustV1422ext.exe).

The default extract path is 'C:\ProgramData\TMR\12d.Model'

The self-extractor file contains the TMR 12d Customisation starting at the folder ‘V14.2.2’.

If a different extract path is used for the customisation then there are several files in the customisation that contain paths that will need modifying. You can use the program 'TMR_Configure_12d' to perform this operation.

Because of Operating System differences relating to shortcut creation, there are two configuration tools. One for Windows 7, one for Windows 10.

  • On Windows 7 run '.\V14.2.2\TMR_Configure_12d_Win7.exe'
  • On Windows 10 run '.\V14.2.2\ TMR_Configure_12d_Win10.exe'

The following actions will be performed as required:

  • Perform a search and replace on selected files to reflect the extraction path if different from the default.
  • Update the environment variable AUTHORIZATION_4D in ‘User\env_default’ to set the location to your 12d licence file.
  • Create a shortcut on the desktop to launch 12d Model V14 against the TMR 12d Customisation.

If the default extraction path is chosen, you should see the following dialogues.

If the customisation has not been extracted to the default folder, the following dialogues will be presented.
