By default, Microsoft Visio is set to high security level and the user will be prompted to run a macro every time Electra operates. When a user clicks no, Electra will cease to function. To enable and use the tools provided by Electra:
In Visio 2003, set Visio to low security level by selecting from the menu Tools | Macros | Security, and on the Security Level tab, select high security. Also make sure the item 'Enable Automation Events' on Tools | Options | Security menu is checked.
In Visio 2010 and above, click on menu File | Options. Then at the Visio Options window, click on Trust Center tab and select Trust Center Settings. In Visio 2007, click on menu Tools | Trust Center. On the Macro Settings, select the 'Disable all macros except digitally signed macros'. Also make sure 'Trust access to the VBA project object model' is checked.
Yes, on exactly 2 occasions only. When you click the "Activate" button to activate your software, Electra communicates with our activation server to validate your license. Electra also checks for new updates to the software weekly, where if there are new updates available, Electra will prompt you to download the new updates.
Floating licenses allows limited number of licenses to be shared among a larger number of users on a network. For example, if you bought 3 licenses, 5 users can share these licenses on a network, but only 3 users can use Electra simultaneously at any one time.
Floating licenses requires all users to be on a network, while our normal license allows users to use Electra even at site. Therefore, in terms of portability, our normal license is strongly recommended.
Electra can run with Windows 64-bits, but not Microsoft Visio 64-bits. For Visio 64-bits users, you will have to uninstall Microsoft Office and Visio 64-bits then install Microsoft Office and Visio 32-bits for Electra to run at your side.
