software and hardware are required.
Software

Windows NT version 3.51 or 4.0 or Windows 95.
It is recommended that you install and run your copy of AutoCAD Map
on an operating system in the same language as your AutoCAD Map soft-
ware or on an English version of one of the supported operating systems.

DWF files are designed to be viewed on the Internet or company intranets
using a Web browser. To view DWF files created with AutoCAD Map, you
must download and install Release 2 of the WHIP! Browser Accessory.
WHIP! is available as a Netscape Navigator plug-in and as a Microsoft
®

Internet Explorer ActiveX control. For information on downloading and
using WHIP!, see the following Web site:
http://www.autodesk.com/whip
To download the plug-in, see the following FTP site:
ftp://ftp.autodesk.com/pub/component_technologies/whip/whip2.exe

Windows NT 3.51 only: Service Pack 4 or 5 if you install Internet Utilities
with the custom or full setup type.

If you plan to use the Internet utilities, you must have Microsoft Internet
Explorer 3.0 or later or Netscape Navigator™ 3.0 or later.

If you plan to install AutoCAD Map on a network, you must have either
the TCP/IP or IPX protocol installed and functioning on the computers
that will be running AutoCAD Map.
System Requirements
7
RAM and Hard Disk Space

32 MB of RAM (minimum); 64 MB of RAM (recommended)

92 MB of hard disk space (minimum), approximately 136 MB is required
for a typical installation

96 MB of disk swap space (minimum); 128 MB of disk swap space (recom-
mended) (See chapter 5, “Optimizing AutoCAD Map Performance.”)

10 MB of additional RAM for each concurrent AutoCAD Map session
(recommended)

2.5 MB of free disk space during installation only (this space is used for
temporary files that are removed when installation is complete)
Note
An additional 8 MB to 15 MB of space may be required for files installed
in the system folder. This need not be on the same drive as the program folder
where you load AutoCAD Map.
Hardware (Required)

Intel 486, Pentium (recommended), or compatible processor

640 by 480 VGA video display (1024 by 768 recommended)

Chapter 1 Installing AutoCAD Map
8
Network
The network version of AutoCAD Map uses either the TCP/IP or IPX protocol
to communicate with the Autodesk License Manager.

The TCP/IP protocol must be installed and configured correctly on all
workstations that will be running AutoCAD Map and the Autodesk
License Manager. The TCP/IP version of the Autodesk License Manager
can be run only under Windows 95, NT 3.51 (workstation and server), and
NT 4.0 (workstation and server).

The IPX protocol from Novell must be installed on all workstations
running AutoCAD Map. AutoCAD Map requires Novell Netware Client 32
support. AutoCAD Map does not support Microsoft Client Service for
Netware. You must install Netware Client32 support before installing
AutoCAD Map. The IPX version of the Autodesk License Manager is a
Netware Loadable Module that can only be run from the server console.
The Autodesk License Manager supports Netware versions 3.12 and 4.x.
Before Installing AutoCAD Map
This section contains steps you should take before beginning the
installation process.
Prior to installing AutoCAD Map
1
If you are installing AutoCAD Map on Windows NT or Windows 95, make
sure you have access rights in the following locations for proper installa-
tion and execution of AutoCAD Map.

Folder where you are installing AutoCAD Map

Windows system folder

System registry
2
Read the preceding section, “System Requirements.”
3
If you are installing a single-user locked version (for international or
educational versions only), attach the hardware lock while your computer
is off, or attach the hardware lock and restart your computer before
starting the installation program.
Note
On some systems, you might need to reinitialize the hardware lock
port. See “Installing the AutoCAD Map Single-User Lock” on page 21.
4
Start Windows. If Windows is already running, close any open
applications.
Multiple Versions of AutoCAD Map
9
Using Setup Switches
Setup switches force the setup routine to perform a specific operation.You
can use the following switches when you start the installation process.

HWL—forces the Setup routine to install the hardware locked version
of AutoCAD Map. You will need to manually install the hardware
lock drivers in order to run AutoCAD Map. See “Installing the AutoCAD
Map Single-User Lock” on page 21 and “Installing the Sentinel Driver” on
page 22.

TCP—forces the Setup routine to install the network version of AutoCAD
Map using the TCP/IP protocol.

IPX—forces the Setup routine to install the network version of AutoCAD
Map using the IPX protocol.
Multiple Versions of AutoCAD Map
You cannot run multiple versions of AutoCAD Map simultaneously. (But you
can run multiple sessions of the same version.)
If you have installed more than one version of AutoCAD Map, one of them
will be the “primary” version. The primary AutoCAD Map is the last version
installed or launched. If you launch AutoCAD Map using OLE on an object
in another application, the primary AutoCAD Map will launch.
Each installed AutoCAD Map has its own separate database configuration.
The configuration cannot be shared; however, each installation can be
configured to the same databases.
If you use the External Database Configuration utility to configure external
databases, each installed version of AutoCAD Map with external database
functionality must be configured separately using that version’s External
Database Configuration Editor. You must run the External Database Config-
uration Editor from the same subdirectory as the acad.exe file for which you
are configuring. This configures ASE for that version of AutoCAD Map. See
chapter 9, “Connecting to External Databases” on page 193.
Chapter 1 Installing AutoCAD Map
10
Customized Files from a Previous Release
AutoCAD Map Release 3 does not overwrite a previous release when it is
installed. Files that you have customized from a previous release can be
copied to the folder of the new release. For a list of customizable file types,
see “Customizable Support Files” in the Customization Guide.
To ensure that you do not lose files you have customized
1
After installing AutoCAD Map Release 3, copy the customized files into
the AutoCAD Map support folder and test to ensure that AutoCAD Map
functions correctly with the customized files.
It is not necessary to back up all the customized files from your previous
release before installing Release 3 because AutoCAD Map will not over-
write a previous release.
2
Uninstall or delete the previous release when you are confident that
AutoCAD Map Release 3 is functioning properly.
3
After uninstalling the previous release of AutoCAD Map, it is
recommended that you reset the system registry using the Reset Registry
option in the Setup Choices dialog box in AutoCAD Map Release 3. For
more information, see “Resetting the System Registry” on page 20.
Note
You might need to modify your customized files to take advantage of
the changes implemented in Release 3.
Installing AutoCAD Map for a Single User
The following procedure installs AutoCAD Map for a single user. If you are
installing AutoCAD Map for a network, see “Installing AutoCAD Map on a
Network” on page 23.
If you are installing a locked version of AutoCAD Map (for international or
educational versions only), you must attach the hardware lock before install-
ing AutoCAD Map. For more information, see “To install the single-user
lock” on page 21. If you want to cancel the setup process, press F3 or ESC.
Installing AutoCAD Map for a Single User
11
If you are installing on Windows NT, make sure you have a minimum of
Guest privileges. You must have permission to write to the necessary system
registry sections. See “Using User Manager to manage your computer’s
security” in the Windows NT online Help, which you can access by clicking
Start on the taskbar.
Note
You must have administrative privileges to install the Internet utilities,
OLE/ADI plot support, and VBA support. If you do not have administrative
privileges, an error message prompts you to either clear the checkbox for the
component that can’t be installed or exit the Setup routine.

Installing the AutoCAD Map Single-User Lock
If you are installing an international or educational locked version of
AutoCAD Map as a single user, you must attach the hardware lock before
installing AutoCAD Map. The hardware lock affects AutoCAD Map only.
It does not affect peripheral devices connected to the same parallel port or
other programs.
If you are cascading the Rainbow SuperPro lock (AutoCAD Map lock) with
other manufacturer’s locks, position the Rainbow SuperPro last in the chain.
Doing this should prevent any conflict problems.
To install the single-user lock
1
Turn off the computer and all peripheral devices.
2
Attach the male connector of the hardware lock to a parallel port on your
computer. If all parallel ports are in use, disconnect one of the peripheral
devices and connect the hardware lock to the open parallel port. Recon-
nect the peripheral device to the female end of the hardware lock.
3
Turn on the computer.
4
Install AutoCAD Map.
Do not disconnect the lock while running AutoCAD Map. If the hardware
lock is removed or disconnected while you are in AutoCAD Map, immedi-
ately save your drawing, quit AutoCAD Map, exit Windows, and turn off the
computer. Reinstall the hardware lock.
Chapter 1 Installing AutoCAD Map
22
Installing the Sentinel Driver
If you are installing the international or educational single-user locked
version of AutoCAD Map, you need the Sentinel hardware lock driver. The
Sentinel driver is used by Microsoft Windows applications that are protected
by Sentinel hardware keys. The driver must be installed in order for the
protected applications to communicate with the keys.
The Sentinel driver is installed automatically during AutoCAD Map
installation. If you need to upgrade the hardware lock driver, use the
following installation instructions.

Installing AutoCAD Map on a Network
The AutoCAD Map Network Setup wizard creates a deployment folder
that allows users to install AutoCAD Map based on either a client installation
or a network installation. For more information, see the next section,
“Choosing Strategies for a Network Installation.”
Note
If you use IPX as your network protocol, you must manually install the
Autodesk License Manager on the Novell server after you run the Network Setup
Wizard. For more information, see “Installing the Autodesk License Manager on
a Novell Server” on page 40.
When using the Network Setup wizard, you have the following three
installation options:

Client and Autodesk License Manager Installation—The Network Setup
wizard creates a deployment location with a setup executable for the users
to install AutoCAD Map on their workstations. The AutoCAD Map files are
installed on and run from the client workstations.

Network and Autodesk License Manager Installation—The AutoCAD Map
files are installed on a network server. The Network Setup wizard creates a
deployment location with a setup executable that configures client
workstations to run AutoCAD Map from the server.

Autodesk License Manager Installation Only—Only the files for the
Autodesk License Manager are installed. You can do a complete installa-
tion at another time. The License Manager must be installed to run a
network version of AutoCAD Map.
Chapter 1 Installing AutoCAD Map
24
For each installation option, you must also select the network protocol being
used in your environment. Select either TCP/IP (default) or IPX. If both
protocols are used in your environment, you must choose which protocol
AutoCAD Map will use.
You can achieve optimum performance by installing AutoCAD Map on each
client workstation. If disk space is an issue, however, you can save disk space
on client workstations by installing AutoCAD Map on a network server.
You can combine client and network installations depending on the
configuration of your network.
If you want to cancel the setup process at any time, press F3 or ESC.
Note
If you are installing AutoCAD Map on a Novell
®
Server from a workstation
running Novell Netware Client 32, you might need to change the destination
folder to one that conforms to the 8.3 file name standard. Some versions of
Novell Netware
®
Client 32 do not support long file names in the same manner
as Microsoft and cause the installation to fail if the 8.3 file name standard is not
followed.
Note
When you specify the
\\server name\share name
in the Network Setup
wizard, you might see an error message indicating that the share you provided
was invalid. This usually means that your Primary Network Provider (set using
Control Panel/Network) is not set to the type of network specified in the
\\server name
part of the UNC path. For example, if you are installing on a Novell
server, the Primary Network Provider should be set to NetWare/Novell.
Choosing Strategies for a Network Installation
The AutoCAD Map network installation comprises three elements: the
Autodesk License Manager (AdLM), the AutoCAD Map application run tree,
and the deployment location.
The License Manager controls available licenses; a user can run AutoCAD
Map if a license is available. The AdLM uses either the TCP/IP or IPX proto-
col. You must choose which protocol is used in your network at the time the
License Manager is installed and the deployment locations are created. The
application run tree is where users run AutoCAD Map from a network. The
deployment location is where a preconfigured AutoCAD Map setup program
resides.
Installing AutoCAD Map on a Network
25
You can store each of these three elements on the same server or on separate
servers. If you plan to implement different types of installations on the same
network—for example, some client and some network installations—you
must create a separate deployment location for each installation type.
Note
The TCP/IP version of the License Manager must be installed on a
Windows workstation or server. It
cannot
be installed on a Novell or Unix server.
The IPX version of the License Manager must be installed on a Novell 3.12 or 4.
x

server and run from the system console.
The All-in-One installation places the License Manager, the AutoCAD Map
run tree, and the client deployment location all on the same server. This
configuration works best when performance is not an issue. If you have a
small number of users, the competition for processes on a single server
should not be a problem.
The Distributed installation distributes the License Manager, the AutoCAD
Map run tree, and the deployment location across at least two servers. This
configuration minimizes the performance impact of users installing
AutoCAD Map at the same time that other users are running AutoCAD Map.
You can place the License Manager and the AutoCAD Map run tree on one
server and one or more client deployment locations on another server to
keep their processes separate.
For optimum performance you can use the Isolated installation configura-
tion and place the License Manager on one server, the AutoCAD Map run tree
on another server, and one or more client deployment locations on their
own servers. This configuration works best if you have a large number of
users with different types of installations.
You can choose to create the following deployment locations:

A deployment location from which users install either a stand-alone or a
licensed version of AutoCAD Map that runs locally on their machines

A deployment location from which users install AutoCAD Map to run
remotely from a server

Both of the above
The configuration you use is based on the structure of your network, the
number of users, and your performance requirements. The following table
provides guidelines for deployment strategies. An X indicates the recom-
mended deployment strategy for the indicated network structure and number
of users.

Installing AutoCAD Map on a Network
27
As an example of how you might use the distributed or isolated installations,
assume you are an AutoCAD Map administrator for a large firm. You have 20
users on site and five users in another city. The network bandwidth between
your two sites is narrow, so performance is unacceptable for the five remote
users to run AutoCAD Map across the network. By contrast, the 20 users on
site have fast, direct connections to the network. Performance is acceptable
for them to run AutoCAD Map across the network.
To implement this installation configuration, you must run the Network
Setup wizard twice to create two client deployment locations: one to enable
the five remote users to install AutoCAD Map on their client workstations
and one to enable the 20 local users to install AutoCAD Map for use on the
network. You might want to place the client deployment location for the five
remote users on your most powerful server to minimize the performance
impact.
Running the Network Setup Wizard
The network setup wizard is located in the netsetup subdirectory on the
AutoCAD Map Release 3 CD. Using the Network Setup wizard, you create a
deployment location from which users can either install AutoCAD Map on
their computers or configure their computers to run AutoCAD Map from a
server.
To run the Network Setup wizard
1
Insert the CD in the appropriate drive.
If you are running Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 95, Autorun starts the
single-user installation process. Choose Cancel.
2
Use one of the following methods to run the setup program.
Windows NT
3.51
From the File menu in Program Manager or File Manager,
choose Run, designate the CD-ROM drive, and enter the
path name and

ment Location” on page 34.

For information about installing only the License Manager, see “Perform-
ing a License Manager Installation Only” on page 37.
Creating a Client Deployment Location
If you plan to have more than one type of installation (for instance,
Typical and Compact) on your network, you must provide a separate client
deployment location for each type of installation.
If you choose a client installation in the Network Installation Selection
dialog box, the Network Setup wizard creates a deployment location on the
server. A user can run an installation that installs AutoCAD Map on the client
workstation or on a computer configured to “share” its hard drive.
Note
In Windows NT 3.51 under Service Pack 2 or earlier, if you use a path that
is too deep when using the Network Setup Wizard to create deployment
directories, you might get the error, “Cannot find file.” For example,
\\pc12345\dir1\dir2\dir3\dir4\dir5
is a very deep path. To correct the problem,
reduce the depth of the path.

naming convention (UNC). The correct format of a UNC path is
\\server name\share name. You can specify an existing share name on your
network by selecting Browse.
When you specify the \\server name\share name in the Network Setup
wizard, you might see an error message indicating that the share you
provided was invalid. This usually means that your Primary Network
Provider (set using Control Panel/Network) is not set to the type of net-
work specified in the \\server name part of the UNC path. For example, if
you are installing on a Novell server, the Primary Network Provider should
be set to NetWare/Novell.

Instructing Network Users
Depending on the selection you made in the Network Installation Selection
dialog box, users can now install AutoCAD Map on their workstations or set
up their workstations to run AutoCAD Map from the network server. Provide
them with the following instructions.
Uninstalling AutoCAD Map
41
To set up AutoCAD Map
1
Using the Windows Explorer or File Manager, go to the folder containing
the setup.exe file for installing AutoCAD Map.
2
Double-click setup.exe.
If you are installing AutoCAD Map on your client workstation, and your
administrator selected Client Installations Will Be Run in Silent Mode, the
Network Setup wizard installs AutoCAD Map without prompting for
information. If you are running AutoCAD Map from the network server,
the Network Setup wizard sets up AutoCAD Map without prompting for
information.
3
If the installation was run in silent mode, restart your workstation to
update system files to the latest version.
Using the Network Setup Log File
The nwclient.log file, stored in the \image folder in the client deployment
folder, keeps a record of client installations. Refer to this file for status infor-
mation and information about problems the user might have encountered
during installation (for example, low disk space or inadequate privileges).
Note
You must provide users with write privileges to the
\image
folder to allow
the
nwclient.log
file to be created.
Uninstalling AutoCAD Map
If you decide to uninstall AutoCAD Map Release 3, use one of the following
procedures, depending upon the environment in which you are running
AutoCAD Map.
If you run the program that uninstalls AutoCAD Map after you’ve added
components, AutoCAD Map removes only the components that were added,
not the entire application.
Chapter 1 Installing AutoCAD Map
42
When uninstalling AutoCAD Map, you might be prompted to remove shared
DLL files that were installed with the application. If you have no other copies
of AutoCAD Map and are sure that no other applications are using these DLL
files, you can choose to remove these from your system.
When you uninstall AutoCAD Map Release 3, AutoCAD Map removes the
following files that you might have customized:

ade.ini

map2sdf.ini

mapdgn.ini

mapiarx.ini

mapmif.ini

mapshp.ini
If you customized these files with specific import/export parameters, save
them to a separate directory before uninstalling AutoCAD Map.
Note
If you are uninstalling AutoCAD Map Release 2.0, save any of these files
you have customized before uninstalling to a separate directory but do
not
copy
them over the new files when you install AutoCAD Map Release 3. Use a text edi-
tor and copy and paste the customized sections of the old files into the new files.

4
Restart your computer.
If you are uninstalling the hardware locked version of AutoCAD Map
Release 3 in Windows NT 4.0, the system hardware lock driver is also
uninstalled. You must reboot the system to properly shut down the system
service. Otherwise, unexpected errors might occur. This is important if
you plan to reinstall AutoCAD Map.
If you have multiple versions of AutoCAD Map Release 3 installed,
(for example, French and German) the hardware lock system drivers are
uninstalled for the last AutoCAD Map that was removed.
Note
If you uninstall and reinstall AutoCAD Map without restarting the
computer, AutoCAD Map might fail to run after you reboot the computer. The
error message references a missing
heidi3.dll
file. To correct this problem, copy
heidi3.dll
from the System directory at the root of the AutoCAD Map CD to the
Windows System directory. Under Windows 95, the system directory is called
System
. Under NT, copy the files to the
System32
directory. After copying the
file, restart AutoCAD Map. It is not necessary to reinstall AutoCAD Map.
Uninstalling AutoCAD Map Installed from a
Network Setup Wizard Deployment
The AutoCAD Map setup.exe file located in the deployment directory also
supports unattended uninstallation of AutoCAD Map on a remote
workstation. The /U or /u switch uninstalls the copy of AutoCAD Map
located on the workstation from where it is executed.
To uninstall AutoCAD Map

Use one of the following methods to run the setup program.
Windows NT
3.51
From the File menu in Program Manager or File Manager,
choose Run, designate the deployment location, and then
enter the path name,

\\server_name\share_name\deployment_location
\setup /u
.
Windows 95 or
NT 4.0
From the Start menu, choose Run, designate the CD-ROM
drive, and then enter the path name,
setup
, and the
switch name. For example, enter:
\\server_name\share_name\deployment_location
\setup /u
.
Uninstalling AutoCAD Map

Note
If you uninstall and reinstall AutoCAD Map without restarting the
computer, AutoCAD Map might fail to run after you reboot the computer. The
error message references a missing
heidi3.dll
file. To correct this problem, copy
heidi3.dll
from the System directory at the root of the AutoCAD Map CD to the
Windows System directory. Under Windows 95, the system directory is called
System
. Under NT, copy the files to the
System32
directory. After coping the file,
restart AutoCAD Map. It is not necessary to reinstall AutoCAD Map.
Note
If you uninstall and reinstall AutoCAD Map, and are running a licensed
version of AutoCAD Map, make sure you have the
adesksys.dll
file installed in the
directory where you installed AutoCAD Map.
Note
If you are uninstalling the hardware locked version of AutoCAD Map
Release 3 in Windows NT, the system hardware lock driver is also uninstalled. You
must reboot the system to properly shut down the system service. Otherwise,
unexpected errors might occur. This is important if you plan to reinstall AutoCAD
Map.
Note
If you have multiple versions of AutoCAD Map Release 3 installed, (for
example, French and German) the hardware lock system drivers are uninstalled
for the last AutoCAD Map that was removed.
Each time InstallShield

does any type of installation, it creates a file called
deisl1.isu. (In this file, the number 1 is incremented each time you install the
same product.) For example, if you install AutoCAD Map Release 3, you
create deisl1.isu. If you then decide to add a component, it creates a second
file called deisl2.isu. This file is the log of files installed for that particular run
of the setup application. The uninstaller only calls the latest one of these files
(in the example above deisl2.isu). The uninstaller will only remove what was
installed during that run (in this case the component and any registry entries
that were added, leaving the base AutoCAD Map installation intact). How-
ever, the uninstall icon is gone and there is no way to remove all of the files
associated with deisl1.isu.
Chapter 1 Installing AutoCAD Map

Upgrading from a Previous Release
Whether you are upgrading from AutoCAD Release 12 and AutoCAD Data
Extension (ADE) Release 1.0, AutoCAD Release 13 and ADE 2.0, or AutoCAD
Map 1.0, or AutoCAD Map Release 2.0, you must install AutoCAD Map
Release 3 in a separate directory.
Drawing File Compatibility
You need take no extra steps when you open an AutoCAD Map 1.0 drawing
in AutoCAD Map Release 3. AutoCAD Map Release 3 uses a new object type,
the optimized (light weight) polyline. When you open a drawing in
Release 3, AutoCAD Map automatically converts all old 2D polylines into the
new optimized polyline. If you have many polylines in your drawings, you
will see a significant reduction in file size although there is no data loss. The
PLINETYPE
system variable controls whether AutoCAD Map uses optimized
2D polylines. See
PLINETYPE
and
CONVERT
in the online Command
Reference.
There are several steps we recommend you take to fully convert AutoCAD
Release 12-based ADE 1.0 drawings to AutoCAD Map Release 3. See “Convert-
ing ADE Release 1.0 Drawings to AutoCAD Map Format” in appendix E,
“Utilities and Preferences” in Using AutoCAD Map for a complete explanation
of this process.
ADE Release 1.0 is built on AutoCAD Release 12. AutoCAD Map Release 3 is
built on AutoCAD Release 14. If you open an ADE file in AutoCAD Map, you
cannot open the file again using ADE. If you need to continue using ADE
Release 1.0 with specific drawing files, make copies of those files, before
opening them in AutoCAD Map.
Query and Index Compatibility
Queries and indexes built in AutoCAD Map 1.0 will run without alteration in
AutoCAD Map Release 3. However, it is recommended that you renew your
indexes from time to time.
If you’re upgrading from ADE Release 1.0, queries and indexes created in ADE
will not run in AutoCAD Map. You must recreate the queries and indexes in
AutoCAD Map. The ADE 1.0 IDX files are not used in AutoCAD Map.
For more information regarding compatibility with earlier releases of
AutoCAD Map and AutoCAD, see appendix A, “Compatibility Issues.”
