When I tried to install SEfree2D the following message appeared: Installation shield gives me the following message: "Solid Edge 2D Drafting V19 Setup has found an existing SEProduct. Please use Add/Remove Programs applet to uninstall Solid Edge." In an earlier thread Mastercam was pointed out as an reason, but no further explanation. I'm using Mastercam 9.1 and X2 in my shop and wonder if there is a solution to install SEfree2D together with Mastercam products?
Dag, Mastercam has placed an entry in the registry so they can read the solid bodies out of Solid Edge files. They should have put it under Mastercam, not under Solid Edge. If you are not opening Solid Edge files with Mastercam, you can just remove that registry entry. How much do you know about the registry? If you understand how to look through the registry, I can tell you what to delete. Regards, Rick B.
Hello Rick. I have worked around in registry several times and think I can delete the necessary keys if you would guide me, please. The last 18 monts I have had no use for importing solids from Solid Edge and probably this will be the case in future to. Regards. Dag
Dag, There are two keys to look for HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Unigraphics Solutions/Solid Edge HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Unigraphics Solutions/Solid Edge If either of these two entries are there, delete them. Regards, Rick B.
