DLM 2018 - Installation

DLM 2018 - Installation

Install DLM 2018 by downloading and installing the free DLM base module from Autodesk Exchange App Store and the free DLM Administrator Module using the link below.

When installed the DLM application will work with both AutoCAD and Revit regardless whether it has been purchased through the AutoCAD shop or the Revit shop.

The fre DLM 2018 Base license enables up to five users to use the app. However the administrator (the user that purchased the app from the App Store) must must initially deploy a local network license file readable by all users. For license handling reasons this must be done from within either AutoCAD ot Revit using the DLM Deployment tool.

Local network license deployment

Before DLM 2018 can be used in practice the administrator must perform a deployment of the license to a network license file accessible by all users.

  • The network license file must be distributed to a directory on the company's network, where all users as a minimum must have read access. The administrator must have write access.
  • The path indicated when distributing the license must be equal to the path read by the users! Therefore, you should not distribute the license by entering a server path. You must enter a drive and a path equal to the drive and path read by all users.

In AutoCAD

At the command line: Call the command DLMDEPLOYLICENSE and Click Start

Browse to a suitable network folder and save the file as DLM.lic. Do not change the file name now or later, as DLM 2018 will in that case not be able to recognize the license.

Close the license deployment module

In Revit

Go to the Add-ins Ribbon Tab > DLM Panel and click Deploy

Click Start

Browse to a suitable network folder and save the file as DLM.lic. Do not change the file name now or later, as DLM 2018 will in that case not be able to recognize the license.

Close the license deployment module

The users may now connect to the network license.
