Answers to commonly asked questions from people choosing Caddie

What version of Caddie will I need for Windows 8?

Question:

 

What versions of Caddie will run on Windows 8?

 

Answer:

 

Caddie 18 is the earliest version of Caddie that will run on Windows 8. No previous versions will run successfully due to changes in the Operating System.

 

Caddie 18 Build 3 includes Hasp drivers for Windows 8 (initial release). If you are installing an earlier build of Caddie 18 you will need to download and install the latest Hasp Driver from the downloads pages

 

Will Caddie run on a Macintosh?

Caddie runs on Windows operating systems. If you want to run Caddie on a Mac you will need to run Windows on the Mac either as a virtual machine of through Bootcamp.

 

Caddie 19 has been successfully run on an Intel based Mac through VMWare, Parallels and Bootcamp on Windows Vista Windows 7 and Windows 8 / 8.1 (Bootcamp and Parallels).

Please note that our support staff can assist with Caddie issues but are unable to assist with configuring VMWare, Parallels or Bootcamp. We are unable to guarantee the compatibility of Caddie with any Macintosh computer.

 

Additional information for users running Windows as a virtual machine:

You need to ensure that your Windows virtual machine has access to the USB port so that Caddie can recognise the dongle. If the light on the dongle is not illuminated then either the virtual machine does not have access to the USB port or the Hasp device driver has not been installed correctly on the virtual machine.

 

Who can purchase a Student Licence of Caddie?

A Caddie Student licence is a time limited licence to use Caddie for educational purposes only.

Term of licence

If the licence is assigned to a registered student, the licence is valid for as long as the student is in full-time, or part-time education, however the licence will require re-activating every 12 months.

If the licence is assigned to a company or organisation for use by a registered student (or students), the licence is valid for 12 months.

Restrictions on use

The student licence may only be used for educational purposes. It does not permit the use of Caddie for commercial, professional or for-profit purposes.

Portability

The student licence will be licensed on 1 (one) computer. The licence cannot be transferred without re-activation. The licence is a software licence and will be destroyed if the hard disk of the computer is reformatted. The licence will require re-activating should this occur.

Activation

The student licence requires an internet connection or email facility for activation. If the licence is assigned to a registered student, the licence is valid for as long as the student is in full-time, or part-time education, however the licence will require re-activating every 12 months.

Restrictions on software

A student licence has the functionality of a full Caddie Professional licence including Caddie Vio, photo-realistic rendering. However drawings created in a student licence will always plot with a border stating that the drawing is an educational drawing. If any part of an educational drawing (including symbols, blocks, etc.) is imported or merged with a non-educational drawing, that non-educational drawing will immediately become an educational drawing and will plot with an educational border thereafter. A commercial version of Caddie will warn the user, if they attempt to merge any part of an educational drawing into a commercial drawing. If the user ignores the warning and continues to import the educational drawing, then that process is not reversible.
