Installation

When installing iConstruct, ensure you have the latest version suitable to run on your release of Autodesk Navisworks. Before you begin the installation, make sure all Navisworks programs are closed.

System Requirements

  • Before installing iConstruct 2020 make sure all older versions of iConstruct are first uninstalled from the Navisworks versions you intend to install.

  • You can run iConstruct 2020 on Navisworks 2020, 2019 and 2018.

  • You can also run different iConstruct versions on the same computer, but you cannot have iConstruct 2020 and 2019 running on the same version of Navisworks.

  • An internet connection for activation of your license.

  • These pre-requisites must also be installed and configured properly on your computer:

    • Microsoft .NET Frameworks 4.7
    • Autodesk Navisworks 2020 Simulate or Manage (or older version)
    • MS Access Database Engine or Microsoft Office (64 bit)

Running the Installer

The setup should be Run as Administrator.

STEP 1:

The welcome dialog will appear, click Next. This will take you to the feature selection (below right).

STEP 2:

By default, the installer detects the available versions of Navisworks and automatically ticks those features to be installed. iConstruct Server Service and Revit Data Switchback Add-ins are features that are not required for the general function of iConstruct, and so should be ticked only if the user is familiar with them.

STEP 3:

Once the feature selection is complete, click Next. The installer will prompt for an optional server name or IP address of an existing iConstruct server (This is not the network license server address). This can be left blank if no server is available.

STEP 4:

Click Next again and then Finish to start the installation process.

STEP 5:

Once complete, select Close to finish.
