Start the installer. The installer wizard will guide you through the installation process.
After choosing the apropriate Archicad folder, you will have the option to Install MEP Modeler with a Trial serial.
- Please tick this checkbox if you have a trial serial for Archicad.
- If you don’t check this, MEP will run in Full or in Demo mode provided that a free license is available.
Note: In case of Educational license you don’t have this checkbox and don’t need to add your serial here.
After installing MEP Modeler add-on properly, you can find a PDF version of the MEP Modeler User Guide in the ‘Archicad/Documentation’ folder.
Launch Archicad, then from the main menu, select Options >> Work Environment >> Work Environment Profiles:
From the Profile Options, choose MEP Profile 23 and click on Apply Schemes of Profile button. For further information, consult the MEP FAQ. The MEP Modeller plugin can be tested with all Archicad license types: commercial, demo, trial and educational. Demo licenses have the limitation of not being able to save and copy work.
To run MEP Modeler with your commercially licensed copy of Archicad, you need a separate license for MEP Modeler.
(This license can either be located on a hardware protection key, or a network license.) The license is automatically reserved when you start any of the MEP functions, provided that a free license is available.
Note: To reserve a MEP Modeler license every time you start Archicad, check the “Reserve MEP Modeler license when Archicad starts” option in MEP Preferences dialog.
If an MEP license is available but has not been automatically reserved for you, you can reserve it manually:
- From the Archicad Help menu, choose License Information.
- From the Available Products list, select MEP Modeler.
- Click Borrow License.
Note: The License Borrowing feature is available only with the CodeMeter NET protection system.
If you do not have a license for MEP Modeler, do one of the following:
- Consult your Archicad distributor to obtain one, or
- Use Archicad in demo mode together with MEP Modeler. To do this, switch Archicad to demo mode by removing the Archicad protection key. MEP Modeler’s full functionality is available.
If you have successfully installed MEP Modeler and begun work, but your MEP license is later missing for any reason while you are working with MEP Modeler, a Warning informs you that you have two choices:
- Obtain the missing license, then continue working; or
- Continue working in Archicad, without MEP functionality. (The MEP Library remains available, but MEP functions such as Routing are grayed.)
