a) To FORCE CATIA to open in specific release

b) Missing of CATIA File preview in window explorer

c) Missing of CATIA icon in window explorer

Scenario.1:

• Having CATIA installed in multiple release e.g. R19,20,21

• When double click to open CATIA file direct from the window explorer, by default it will open

can enforce CATIA system open in the specific release.

Good practice to open CATIA file is to start the CATIA application- in specifying the

release needed. Then File Open or drag and drop the file from explorer

The Support of LUM 1 licensing technology will end

on December 31st, 2013.

This technology has been replaced by DSLS 2 ,

which is already available in all V5 releases since

V5R21, and in all V6 releases.

Dassault Systèmes is recommending customers

and partners who currently use LUM as a

licensing system for products under support, to

migrate to the DSLS licensing system in 2013, if

and when available.

You can get more detailed information in the document

"REMINDER: LUM licensing technology End

of Support" published on January 4th 2013 on your

DS Support Portal (private access).

Customer Support Centers remain the primary focal

point of customers/partners for support questions

related to licensing.
