No modules found on the client computer with a server on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

This problem can occur with the network connection, but also with a student installation (when both LMTools and SCIA Engineer are installed on the same computer).

When using a server with Windows 7 or a Windows Server 2008 R2, it is necessary to add the following 2 programs as an exception in the Windows Firewall:

  • scia.exe
  • lmgrd.exe

Both programs can be found in the folder "Protection" in the installation folder of SCIA Engineer.

Afterwards the modules can be found on the client computer.
