After you download and install the software, consult the Readme file to see what's new in this version.
Previous versions of RAD-IT relied on Microsoft Access Database Engine (ADE) 2010 and some users reported issues attempting to save a file due to issues with ADE. That dependence has been removed with the March 2021 release but there are some one-time steps that need to be done in order for RAD-IT to work properly. See the ADE Steps page for instructions.
Contact the Helpdesk if you have any questions.
- Generating outputs, such as the web pages or batch diagrams, using a network file share may cause an error - set Synchronization Off when generating outputs.
- Following installation some users have reported an error that "Access is denied" when they try to launch the tool. This is due to a conflict between the RAD-IT installation and your anti-virus software. Try temporarily disabling your anti-virus software and reinstalling RAD-IT.
RAD-IT includes a Conversion facility that supports quick and easy conversion of existing Turbo and RAD-IT databases, providing a convenient migration path for existing Turbo or RAD-IT users.
