Default floview.exe error .pack extension tutorials

Hello guys,

I got the flotherm running and did "quick first project" (or something like that) from user's guide, at the end of this tutorial they show you how to access those applications, I tried to open one of them and flotherm stopped working. Since then when I start flotherm I got an error which says that "floview.exe stopped working", I digged into it and it occured that "flointerface.dll" is missing from the lib directory, but to my surprise it was there... I reinstalled flotherm twice, installed it on different computer and still got the floview.exe error popping out, then I runned flotherm in compatibility with windows xp (service pack 3) and it worked, but only on second computer ;<

Does anyone have any ideas what to do (besides installing version for windows 7) ?

Second thing:
I have some tutorial files (.pack extension) from support.mentor but I don't know how to open them. Generally, it is hard for me to find any tutorial, even though I have access to support.mentor ;<

Thanks for any help!

Just go to Project -> Import Project -> Auto Detect File (then browse on the HDD to the desired *.PACK file). Hit "Open" and you're done.

Be sure that the *.PACK file is archived using an older (or same) version of flotherm then yours. Currently, the latest fth version is "FloTHERM 10.1 update 1" Build 14.43.4

Best regards, Gabriel.

ok, problem solved:
I was using open vpn to connect to licensing server, if you do that make sure to install flotherm without flexim (hit client type instead of typical installation).
