    Bob......................I have a lot going on today, but I'll try later tonight to put something together.

    Ledger only one platform on wall?

    Eric....................After playing around with a simpler plan I've come to realize that the foundation walls attached to the one I wanted the ledger attached to are a factor in making the floor framing work correctly. Without getting into a lot of detail explaining, I figured how to make the floor platform frame very close to what I wanted it to do with just a little clean up. Appreciate your time. Have a great day.

    Ledger only one platform on wall?

    I have two floor platforms. One sits on top of the foundation wall while the other one steps down 2'. I want that one to be attached to the wall using a ledger. What is the correct procedure to accomplish this? I've search for info on this and up to now I can not find anything for this particular situation. When I frame the floor CA produces what I show in the attachment. When I highlight the foundation wall and check the dbx. "Hang Floor Platform Above on Wall" in Wall Specification CA hangs both "A" and "B" platforms off the foundation wall. I would think Chief should be able to do what I want to do or at least there would be a work around to accomplish it. Thanks in advance for taking the time.

    Michael................Thanks for the clarification. By the way, how's the weather in Alaska? My daughter lived in Anchorage for 5 years. She never got use to the dark winters. We visited your area many times--------------great fishing!

    New computer transfer CA program woes

    Dan.........................Thanks for the info. I honestly didn't know my old keys were available. Graeme....................I'm not much of a "computer person". I have a younger generation to do most of that work for me when needed --------------(grandchildren). Where would I look for the installation files and what would they be called? Mick.........................I guess what you say is what I'll be doing. In doing the "transfer" the way you describe I guess I'll have to go to the Knowledge Base and follow their instructions to migrate my libraries, templates, etc., etc.----------correct? Thanks to all for taking time to help the "old guy". Have a great day

    New computer transfer CA program woes

    Larry........................Sorry if I'm not explaining my problem correctly. I'm trying to install my X11 and some earlier "X" versions on my new computer from the old computer. When I did this some years back when I had a new computer built I had no problems. At that time all the files associated with my "X" versions came along with the transferring from the old computer to the new one like clock work. Eric........... "Do you have the installation file for the older versions?" ................ I'm not very good with this stuff. Where do I look for them? What would I be looking for. Like I mentioned above to Larry, when I transferred CA programs a few years back there were no problems so I'm assuming I had installation files then and if that is the case they should be somewhere. Some of those CA programs I moved then are the same ones I'm trying to transfer now to my new computer.

    New computer transfer CA program woes

    What sort of problems?..............The CA programs won't open. I don't have the new computer up and running at this moment so I can't tell you exactly what the "message" says (something about some missing files) when I try and open them. Almost all the programs that were moved to the new computer work with the exception of a few. Of those that don't work, most are old ones that don't run on Windows 10 (Microsoft Office 2003, Outlook and an old version of Word). The two that I'm most interested in working are my last 4 versions of CA and Autocad 2010. All the other ones that won't open I'll just get newer versions. How are you transferring?..............We are using "PC Mover" My computer builder has tried several times transferring the files with the same outcome. I was thinking the thread I read sometime ago discussed something about transferring the CA programs from one computer to another. Have you checked the Knowledge Base -- I believe there is an article on doing this. ............Yes, but aren't they talking about migrating files and not the program? I think it was a link that you posted. Please understand, I'm not much of a computer guru. The person that built my new computer built my last one with great success and we had no problems using "PC Mover", but I'm thinking I was using the same operating system on the old and new computer at that time. He's on another project today and I'm just trying to find info that might help him when he comes at the end of this day. He seems to think it has to do with my old computer using Windows 7 and my new one has Windows 10.

    New computer transfer CA program woes

    I had a new computer built and we are having problems moving my X11 and older versions over to the new computer. My old computer used Windows 7 and my new computer is set up with Windows 10. I don't know if that's what the snag is or not, but I'm thinking there was a thread not to long ago about moving Chief over to another computer. I've tried to find it, but I'm not having any luck. Am I remembering correctly and if so can anyone direct me to that thread? I know I can just download X11 again to the new computer from my digital locker, but I would like to keep a few of the older versions I still have in case I'm working with someone that is using an older version. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you

    Library Browser "Senior moment"

    Francois............................Thank you. That did the trick. I'm safe-----------it wasn't a "Senior Moment"! Have a great day.

    Library Browser "Senior moment"

    I went from two monitors to a single monitor. Once setup using the single monitor, I opened Chief X11 to the plan I was working on, clicked on the Library Browser icon, but it doesn't show up on my screen. The Project Browser doesn't show up either. When I click on the active layer display it does show up. I'm hoping this is just a "Senior Moment" . Can anyone tell me what is going on? I'm sure it's just something simple and I'll really feel "old" when I find out what's going on. Thanks to all who helps out this old fart with advice.
