A.2. RIGHTS DURING INSTALLATION
When running the Operating System as Administrator or as a User, there are two possible
approaches:
 The software must be installed with an administrator account. If the user logs on as main user
on the computer, then it is enough to enter the values one more time and close the licence
assistant. The licence will remain on the computer.
However, if the user logs on as "User with limited rights", the Administrator must give full access
and modification rights for the whole SEE Electrical main directory.
 The user profile must keep the administrator rights during the installation. The administrator
rights can be removed again after the installation.
However, if the user works with the "User with limited rights" property, the administrator must give
full access and modification rights for the whole SEE Electrical main directory.

LICENSING TYPES
This chapter helps you to license SEE Electrical.
If you work with Administrator and User profiles, there are two procedures for installing and licensing:
 The software must be installed, and the dongle programmed under the Administrator's account.
If the user must log on as main user on the computer, it is enough to fill in, and close the
License wizard.
If the user logs on as "User with limited rights", rights for full access or rights for editing the
main directory and all subdirectories of SEE Electrical must be given from the Administrator.
If you use the "Safe mode" or "Backup"-function, this has to be done also for the folders
'$projects" and "temp" in the SEE Electrical folder. (These folders are not generated on
installation, but are automatically generated on the first execution of the "Safe mode" or
"Backup"-functions.).
If Windows home version is used, it is not possible to enhance the rights for restricted users in
folders. In this case we recommend that you install the program in the folder "My files", because
here even users with restricted rights have enough rights.
The User profile must receive Administrator rights during the installation and programming of the
dongle. The Administrator rights can be removed after installing and licensing.
B.1. LICENSE SEE ELECTRICAL WITH A DONGLE
B.1.1. LICENSE WITH A DONGLE - INTRODUCTION
A Dongle (Hardlock) can be available as a single-position dongle or as a network dongle. In this
chapter you will find the instruction for licensing with a single-position dongle.
If you are not familiar with the program, we recommend, after licensing with a dongle, to work
through the Workspace Example 1 (in the User Manual) to get a general introduction into the
program.
If SEE Electrical must be used on several computers, license the software on all of the computers as
described below: However, the dongle must be programmed only once, and the plug connection can
be changed afterwards.
B.1.1.a.

B.3.3. LICENSING SEE ELECTRICAL VIA LOCAL LICENSE SERVER
If you work on a high security level and you do not have access to the Internet for your local network
or workstation, you can use the local license server. The use of a local license server offers the
possibility to borrow a license for a certain amount of days. This means that if your company has
several licenses the users can check out the license from the server. The license is then available on
the user's computer even if it is not connected to the company network. After the determined period
the license is blocked if the computer is not connected to the company's network.
Note:
The license available via the local license server is a softlock type license.

Manager displays the serial numbers, the modules, the levels and the number of
licenses available in your license.
▪ To start the server, press the Start Server button.
You can see if the server is running or not in the "Current status" field.
▪ To stop the server, press the Stop Server button.
Inform the users that the local server is available and that they can license the SEE
Electrical on their local computers now.
You need to forward the information about the:
 IP Address of the server ("Settings" window of the "License Server Window")
 port to use ("Settings" window of the "License Server Window")
 serial number to use (the serial number provided you by your SEE Electrical
dealer. It is also displayed in the of the "License Server Window" in the "Available
licenses" section)
 pass key to use during the licensing process (the pass key provided you by your
SEE Electrical dealer)
When the users log in to the local license server, the number of the currently used
licenses currently will be updated in the "License Server Window" in the "Available
licenses" section.
Setup each computer for each single user
The license available via local license server is a softlock license.
▪ Choose the "License from Local Server" option if you want to use a local
server. (Before the local server can be addressed, it has to be prepared)
▪ Type your serial number.
▪ Click the License on local server button.
▪ Define the IP address and Server port of the server. For any additional
information, please contact your administrator.
▪ Type your password. (This is the password provided you by your distributor.)
If you want to borrow a license to be able to work without connection to a local
network for a certain amount of days, define the number of days you need to borrow
the license in the "Borrowed day(s)" field. A maximum of 90 days is possible.(If the
value in "Borrowed day(s)" field is empty, the PC must be connected directly to the
local license server to work with the software).
▪ Press the License button.
The modules in the License wizard window will be displayed in green or in blue (in
case you borrowed the license). If you borrowed the license, the number of days left
is also displayed.
Attention:
A license will be taken from the license server each time SEE Electrical is started. The license
will be transmitted to the license server (and thus will be available again) as soon as SEE
Electrical is closed (except it is borrowed).
If you have borrowed a license you have to "Free license" first, before a license can be taken
again.

B.3.4. LICENSING AUTOMATICALLY THE NEW VERSION IF AN OLD VERSION OF THE
SOFTWARE IS ALREADY INSTALLED
If you install a new version on a computer that already has a previous version of SEE Electrical V6
build 16 or higher and the version is licensed via software key, the licensing of the new version is
done automatically.
B.3.5. "SILENT" LICENSING IF USING THE "REMOVE THE LICENSE WHEN CLOSE THE
APPLICATION" OPTION
If you use the "Remove the license when close the application" option, a new registry key License\General\AskToLicenseOnOpen – allows you to define if the program will ask you or not
about the licensing on the startup.
Value 1 - a message appears.
Value 0 - the message will not appear but the software will try to license automatically in case there
is a valid license code.
This new registry setting is useful when you try to open a project from the Windows Explorer or PDM
systems like Microsoft Share Point etc. Then it won't be possible to open a project if this message
appears, so you need to switch it off.
B.3.6. TERMINAL SERVER SUPPORT
SEE Electrical can be used in terminal server environments for licenses licensed via softlock (by
internet or local license server) or FlexLM. It is necessary to license each individual user.
The licensing algorithm detects if the software is used in such an environment and adds user name
to the licensing process. For example, if three users want to use the software in the same time you
will need three licenses..
Dongle protection cannot be used if the software is installed on terminal server. In case the software
is installed on terminal server (or remote desktop, that means in any case where RDP protocol used)
a message informs you in case protection by dongle is chosen.

UPDATING FROM AN EXISTING SEE ELECTRICAL VERSION V5R1
First secure your data!
A parallel installation of V5R1 and V7R1 versions of SEE Electrical is possible.
However, it should be noted that projects, page and project templates, type databases and symbol
libraries that have been opened with version V7R1, cannot be processed using an older version of
SEE Electrical.
Make sure that you have strictly removed all data.
▪
▪
▪
If you use a softlock, free the licence of V5R1 or of an older version before installing
V7R1.
Make a backup copy before the uninstallation/installation procedure.
Save the contents of the directories ...\Projects, ...\Symbols, ...\Templates.
Notes for the Symbols directory:
The "System.Ses" and "List of text placeholders.ses" files must not be applied because these files
are related to the version.
If you have not created any user defined cable symbols, we recommend you not to convert the
Cables.ses file because this file already exists in the V7R1.
The OGl files from the directory ...\Symbols is also related to the version and must not be saved.
Notes for the Templates directory:
Files to save:
 Wires.msw (database of wire properties)
 Translation.mdb (translation database)
 Cables.mdb (user defined cable database)
 If you have not created any user defined cable symbols, we do not recommend you to save the
Cables.mdb file.
 All files with the endings *.tdw, *.txt, *.dat
 The *.cds, *.LbL, *.Lbp, *.Lbv, *.Lst, *.Lsv, *.Lsp. files for the "Lists and labels" module
From …\Templates you must by no means save the SYSTEM.SEM file and the files with extension
EXT and RPT because these files relate to the version.
▪
If necessary, remove the old version of SEE Electrical.

The installation must be made in a new directory, you cannot install it over an existing version
of SEE Electrical. However, you can install the new version parallel to the old one or uninstall
the old version before installing the new one.
Before uninstalling check your backup!
Here is described the data transfer from the version V5R1.
Note:
If you transfer data from an older version of SEE Electrical than V5R1, you must convert the files.
You will find instructions for converting the data under "Conversion of data from V5R1 and older
version".
▪
Copy the saved data again into the proper directories.
If your data (projects, type database etc.) is processed for the first time with the new version
of SEE Electrical, you will have to fit it to the format of version V7R1. After this the data
cannot be used any more together with older versions of SEE Electrical!

UPDATING FROM AN EXISTING SEE ELECTRICAL VERSION V4R1
AND OLDER
E.1. CONVERSION OF EXISTING USER DATA WHEN USING OLDER VERSIONS OF SEE
ELECTRICAL
First secure your data!
Because data is now stored in an Access 2000 database, it is necessary to convert all the files that
have been based on an Access database in the past: projects, libraries, additional databases.
The Converter for old projects, symbols and additional databases (Wire database (WIRES.MSW),
Cable database (CABLES.MDB) and Translation database (TRANSLATION.MDB) - all in templates
directory), into Microsoft Access 2000 format is located in the SEE Electrical folder. Its name is
"CADdy2SEP.EXE". You will also find the converter in the Windows Start menu in the group "SEE
Electrical V7".
Please copy your old files in the directories used for SEE Electrical V7R1 (by default "…\projects,
…\symbols, …\templates") before starting the converter. The converter will replace them by files in
Access 2000 format. The old files are copied into a folder "Backup" beneath the folder where they
have been.
New file names:
Description
Old Name
New name
Folder (Default)
Workspaces
*.cpj
*.sep
…\projects
Cable
database
Cable.mdb
CableNew.mdb
…\templates
Wire database
Wires.msw
Wires.mdb
…\templates
Translation
database
Translation.mdb
TranslationNew.mdb
…\templates
Symbol
libraries
*.cps
*.ses
….\symbols
(The default settings for the converter are located in the master project "_Convert.c2s" in SEE
Electrical folder. If you want to add specific SQL-queries or add user defined project information texts
to all the converted projects, this master project can be changed. To do so, rename it to SEP as
extension, treat it as a normal project and rename it back).

USING V4R1 AND V7R1
H.1. CUSTOMERS WITH SOFTLOCK AND VERSION V4R1
The software used for the protection had to be changed to improve support with MS Vista and
Windows 7. Additionally with the new protecting software it is not necessary any more to have
administrator rights to license or remove the license.
Because of the change of protection the licensing of the program by software in the future is only
possible, if the computer is connected to the internet while licensing.
If you have licensed by software the V4R1 and do not have the possibility to connect your computer
to the internet in order to license V7R1, please contact your dealer as you have to use a dongle.
Because of the new protection software, you have to put your V4R1 license to the database on the
internet before you can license the V7R1. For the installation you still need Administrator rights.
H.2. SIMULTANEOUS USE OF SEE ELECTRICAL V4R1 AND V7R1
H.2.1. SOFTLOCK
The licence for the version V4R1 has to be released before licensing the version V7R1and vice
versa.
You can find more info on how to execute this action in the chapter "License with a software key".
H.2.2. DONGLE
The dongle code given for your V7R1 is only valid for V7R1 and V6R1. You cannot use it to work
with an older version
If you need to work with V4R1 >= 148 too, contact your delivery department.
