RAE Solutions Installation Instructions for Century

Preparing for installation:
  • RAE Solutions is designed to run on 32 bit Windows XP and 32 and 64 bit Windows 7, 8, and 8.1.
  • Opening drawings in RAE Solutions will require software on your PC capable of viewing DXF format CAD files.
    • If you already have AutoCAD, AutoVUE, eDrawings, or similar up-to-date CAD software on your PC you should have no problem viewing drawings.
    • If you do not have CAD software installed, we recommend Solidworks eDrawings as a free option.
  • Rating sheets and proposal reports are generated as Word documents and are designed to open in Office 2007 or newer. Using older versions or programs other than Office may affect formatting or prevent reports from opening entirely.
