floEFD Problem

floEFD Problem

I am also having troubles with floEFD, but in a different way. I have floEFD and all it's components on my computer, along with the ProE software that works absolutely wonderfully and that I have been using for the past week or so. The only problem I had, while following the floEFD tutorial video, was connecting the two programs in the way that was described: Tools, Options, then adding the protk.dat file. For some reason, the box that I'm supposed to type 'protkdat' in is blocked with a blue highlight that doesn't allow any text to be typed. The only way that I can add the file is to change the "Showing" location from the file location(which by the way, if it helps, is C:\Program Files\ProENGINEER Schools Edition\text\config.pro) and to change it to "Current Session". Furthermore, when I change to "Current Session", there seems to be no effect whatsoever in the program itself, although I can see the protk.dat file being added on the Options window with a little lightening bold next to it. I have confirmed that I have M092 version of ProENGINEER, and I have deleted and redownloaded the floEFD files once already. I hope that we'll be able to sort this out so we may test our aircraft. Thanks for the help, Emily

We ran into this same problem. It seems to only appear in Windows 7 (though it may also occur in Vista). Though you may be a user with admin privileges, Windows 7 does not start the program as if you were a privileged user. You need to right-click the program icon and select Run as administrator (or the equivalent). You will then find the fields available for you to enter the appropriate information.
