5) Support for possible problems found in reading CD TUPY UTILITY

1) The CD does not run
The microcomputer may have a program that disables the reading of executable files on a CD. Programs like PROTEC or some types of anti-virus software may do that. Normally, that occurs when the Information Technology Department of some companies does not authorize the installation without previous submission.
2) The CD runs but I cannot click on the icons because they do not appear on the screen
Verify the video resolution of the computer. The resolution standard recommended is 800x600 pixels.
3) For the Windows XP version, during CD installation, the message saying “The file XXXX.dll has not been found” appears.
Continue the installation of the CD clicking OK.
4) TupyGas – Dimensioning. The calculation is not being initiated by the gas supply inlet.
The calculation should ALWAYS begin by the gas supply inlet.
5) TupyGas – Dimensioning. Common mistake: consider a regulator in the piping and continue the dimensioning
Each network pressure regulator should be considered as a new dimensioning as from that point.
6) TupyGas – Versions 1.0 and 2.0 show deficiencies such as:
    1. They do not allow for the inclusion of text by the user, for example, for
         explanations on products in the project;
    2. They do not allow for ramifications in the network;
    3. It is not possible to change the gas during the dimensioning.
Install a new CD. The latest version is the 2.0b from May 2001.
