I needan instruction of how to install the wildfire. This is my first time of installing this software and it seems very difficult to install. Is there a guide that show step by step of how to install in this software? any help is appreciate it.
The install is fairly straight forward. The most complicated thing, IMO, is the licensing. What are you running for licensing? Is it floating/fixed? Flex3C? PTC has a great tech support line.. they can walk you through much of the install I'm sure.
I am trying to install Pro/E Wildfire 2.0 on Windows XP. After running the setup, it gives an error message, "Unable to detect host id" . However the ethernet id is displayed correctly in the command prompt (using "ipconfig /all). I had configured a additional ethernet card which was later removed.
insert the 1st cd of proe installation and when proe opens the first window in order to continue the install it must show you, at theleft corner, your host ID. If not then don't continue further you installation.
Do you have a Norton or Windows firewall turned on?Sometimes, but not always, the firewall will block the license management software from communicating with Pro/E. You may have to configure your firewall to allow communication.
Had a similar problem when installing 2001, Pro E would keep telling me it could not find id host.
This may not help but it solved my problem by making sure my network connection had a fixed ip address and not giving me a new one each time I logged on.
Go to a DOS window and type ipconfig /all (write down all your ip address etc.)
Then "control panel" "network & dial up connections", click on "local area connection" then "properties". Highlight "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" then "Properties". Type in your ip addresses and click "use the following ip address".
If not then a tech call to PTC usually helps, if you log a call on their web site they usually reply quicker than waiting on the phone.
You also need to check that your network is enabled. In more recent windows implementations, the operating system will automatically disable the networking if it cannot sense a physical network connection. In which case flexlm and the PTC install software are unable to interogate the network card. To solve this you have to plug in a network cable or hack the registry to disable the network "autosense" option.
