Network Installations

The installation software treats a network drive like a local hard drive. Specify the target installation drive and folder to install the software.

Some networks protect installation directories from subsequent modification by users. This involves setting the access rights to the installation folder to read, share, and scan. Because Hexagon PPM CAS software uses data files specific to the installation (such as accounting files and material files) that you may need to modify, these files cannot be installed in a typical write-protected installation folder.

Therefore, CAESAR II installs these data files in a System subfolder, located in the following location of your root folder based on your platform.

\Program Data\Intergraph CAS\CAESAR II\Version Number\System

  • While you can revise the name of the software's installation folder when you install the software, the CAESAR II SYSTEM subfolder name is fixed because it is automatically created by the software. If you rename the CAESAR II SYSTEM subfolder, the software does not run and generates an error report.

  • The CAESAR II SYSTEM subfolder is not the primary, top-level SYSTEM folder that contains the network operating system. Consult your system administrator for further clarification.

After the software has been installed on the network drive, the installation software launches the CAESAR II Configuration Editor, which generates a default configuration file.
