By default, SVOFFICE5 maps to FlexPDE7. However, if you have a FlexPDE version 6 dongle (see article 'Is my FlexPDE dongle a version 6 or version 7?' for distinction between FlexPDE dongles), you will need to use FlexPDE6 software. Follow these steps to enable the FlexPDE version 6 dongle in SVOFFICE 5.
- Install FlexPDE6 ("FlexPDE6 64-Bit Installer") from this webpage: https://soilvision.com/support/downloads
- Once FlexPDE6 installation is complete, adjust the SVOFFICE5 "Solver Path" to use FlexPDE6 rather than FlexPDE7 (default)
- Open SVOFFICE
- In SVOFFICE Manager move to Expert Mode
- Select Options > Global Settings
- Move to the Solver tab and under the "FlexPDE Solver Path" click "Browse...". Browse to FlexPDE6, which should be installed on the C: drive (default location)
- Click OK
- Register FlexPDE version 6 dongle
- Plug in FlexPDE dongle
- Open FlexPDE6
- Select Help > Register FlexPDE
- Select "DONGLE" then Continue
- Click Read Dongle
SVOFFICE should now recognize the FlexPDE version 6 dongle.
