Vecter Draw installation failure


When trying to install the vector draw, , the following error message appears even when I installed the .NET Ver.5.0


This is because a higher version of Vector draw program is already installed. Vector Draw required by DESIGN+ is not compatible with higher versions. Vectordraw lite file converter 3.x version is valid for DESIGN+. In this case, You also need to register 'MCAD'.

The solution is

1. To delete the higher version of Vectordraw (like, Vectordraw lite file converter 4.0)

2-1. Install Vectordraw lite file converter 3.x (as explained early)

2-2. Or Re-install DESIGN+ installer (Other solution)

3-1. Register MCAD manually. (When re-install DESIGN+ installer like 2-2, this process is not needed)

How to register MCAD manually

1) Run the command prompt. : Win+R -> Input ‘cmd’ and Press Enter -key

2) Go to DESIGN+ Folder in cmd :

Input ‘ cd C:\Program Files\MIDAS\midas Design+’ and Press Enter-key

2) Input RegisterMCAD.bat  and press Enter-key


3) Registry successful!

4) Reboot computer and Run DESIGN+
