Bricscad - GeoTools e-Newsletter # 107:

In my last post, I explained the lack of compatibility between Bricscad V12 Classic and GeoTools V12. There is an interesting observation I made regarding Bricscad trial version and Bricscad Classic.

If you download a 30-day trial version of Bricscad and install it on your system, it runs as the highest end version, Bricscad Platinum in trial mode. This is the dialog box you see when you first start Bricscad in trial mode.

When you are running a trial version of Bricscad, you can run GeoTools because it is the BRX-enabled Platinum version. Eventually, if you decide to purchase a Classic version of Bricscad, and enter the license for Classic, a number of features get disabled (like VBA, BRX, Direct Modeling etc). This results in GeoTools v12 no longer working in Bricscad Classic.

This post is to clarify and for the benefit of those users who have done GeoTools trial with Bricscad trial version and found that it stopped working later in a licensed version of Bricscad Classic V12.

However, GeoTools V12 still runs in Bricscad V11. If you still have Bricscad V11, your workaround would be to go back to V11, run your favorite GeoTools task in V11, and then come back to V12 for other stuff.
