USB license key drivers
If USB hardware key is used for TeleCAD-GIS licensing than it is necessary to install supporting drivers. Drivers are provided as a part of TeleCAD-GIS installation meaning that no additional installation is required. However, if you have any problems with the drivers, you can download them from the site of the manufacturer and install them on your computer.
Autodesk ARX Enablers
Autodesk ARX Enablers (or Autodesk Object Enablers) are Autodesk freeware applications that enable access to drawing objects out of their native environment.
If a .dwg file is created in (e.g.) AutoCAD Civil 3D it is quite possible that such file contains objects that are unique for AutoCAD Civil 3D. These objects are not visible in “regular” AutoCAD (or some other product that you might have). In order to make them visible in this particular case it is necessary to install „AutoCAD Civil 3D Object Enabler”.
What object enabler is required depends on the application that originally created the file you are trying to open. You can ask this the person from which you have received the file.
You should start the search for the appropriate Object Enabler on the page Object Enablers.
There you need to find Autodesk product that YOU are using and follow the link.
On the new page find the program in which the file was original created.
Download that object enabler and install it.
DWG TrueView™ is a free Autodesk .dwg viewer. It also includes DWG TrueConvert™ software that can convert between new and old .dwg file formats.

Autodesk Design Review™
Autodesk Design Review™ is another free application that enebles viewing .dwg files and more (e.g. printing, commenting…).
You can find out more about Autodesk Design Review™ features on the Autodesk Design Review™ page.
Download it from the Autodesk download page.

Crystal Reports component displays TeleCAD-GIS reports (it comes with the TeleCAD-GIS installation). Component is not OS dependent. If you are having trouble displaying reports generated by TeleCAD-GIS most probably there is a problem related to this component or the component is missing all together.
Prior to Crystal Reports component installation it is necessary to uninstall its previous versions.
