Can I get offline help?

How to use help for older version of SDC Verifier.

We generally recommend using the latest version of SDC Verifier as it includes all the latest changes, bug fixes, and support for new CAE products, standards, and features. However, if you already have an older version of the program installed, you can download an archive containing the help files for that particular version.

When pressing F1 in the SDC Verifier program, an online version of the help topics is opened by default which contains information only for the latest released version of the software. To run an offline version of the help topics for the specific version, it is necessary to perform the following steps:

  1. Download the corresponding to the software version of the help topics.
  2. Extract the content of the downloaded archive to the folder where SDC Verifier is installed (Administrator privileges may be required). Example for SDC Verifier 2023 R1:

  1. Restart SDC Verifier to apply the changes.

Note: ‘Help’ folder contains an offline version of the help topics for Femap, Simcenter 3D and Ansys:

Now you can use the help for your version of SDC Verifier, even if it is outdated.

Don’t forget to update your SDC Verifier regularly to ensure that you have access to the latest features and fixes that improve its performance and reliability.
