Please read the readme file, which addresses how the hotfixes are supposed to be applied.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Jeff Lotan (one of our own Avatech NSC staffers) discovered you may have to turn off the digital signature validation (on by default) before exchanging one of the dll files (otherwise you cannot replace it per the instructions in the readme file) by doing the following:
- From the Windows desktop, press and hold the Windows key on your keyboard then then press the "R" key to bring up the Run dialog.
- Next to the Open label, type "ACSIGNOPT" and then hit the Enter key
- Uncheck (clear) the checkbox next to "Validate Digital Signatures and Display Special Icons"
- Log Out of Windows
- Log In to Windows
- Then replace the dlls as directed.
