Installation of VirtuSurv's AutoCAD Plug-in
Before you can use VirtuSurv's AutoCAD macros, you need to load a small plug-in to AutoCAD. This is done automatically during the VirtuSurv setup. Please ensure that AutoCAD is installed before you run the VirtuSurv setup and enable the “Install AutoCAD receiver” option in the according setup dialog. Note, the dialog will only be displayed if AutoCAD has already been installed. If you use more than one version of AutoCAD on your computer, please select the version you want to use together with VirtuSurv when prompted.
Installation of VirtuSurv's BricsCAD Plug-in
Before you can use VirtuSurv's BricsCAD macros, you need to load a small plug-in to BricsCAD. If BricsCAD is already installed on your computer, this is done automatically during the VirtuSurv setup.
If you want to install the plug-in later, navigate to the folder: C:\Program Files\FARO\VirtuSurv v20xx.x.x.xxxxx English\Receiver_Setups. Then right-click on the file DrawToBricsCAD_receiver_setup.exe and select Run as administrator. The plug-in should now be properly installed and will be present when BricsCAD is started.
Earlier versions of VirtuSurv are available here. Please note that these earlier versions only work with the WiBu CodeMeter licensing system and will not function with a VirtuSurv 2018 and later product key/license.
