How to Install DeproRED 4.1 on Windows 7 and AutoCAD 2009 or 2015
DeproRED is a software that allows you to design and calculate electrical distribution networks. It is compatible with AutoCAD versions from 2008 to 2014, but it has some issues with 64-bit operating systems. In this article, we will show you how to install DeproRED 4.1 on Windows 7 and AutoCAD 2009 or 2015.
Step 1: Download DeproRED 4.1
You can download DeproRED 4.1 from various sources on the internet, or you can use this link[^3^] to get it directly. The file name is DeproRED 4.1.rar, and it contains a folder called DprCFE16 with all the necessary files.
Step 2: Copy the DprCFE16 folder to Program Files (x86)
After you have downloaded DeproRED 4.1, you need to extract the DprCFE16 folder from the rar file and copy it to C:\\\\Program Files (x86). This is where AutoCAD will look for the files to load DeproRED.
Step 3: Give full control permissions to the DprCFE16 folder
The next step is to give full control permissions to the DprCFE16 folder, so that AutoCAD can access and modify it. To do this, right-click on the folder and select Properties. Then, go to the Security tab and click on Edit. Select Users and check the box for Full Control. Click on Apply and then OK.[^2^]
Step 4: Load DeproRED in AutoCAD using APPLOAD command
Now you are ready to load DeproRED in AutoCAD. Open AutoCAD (either 2009 or 2015) and type APPLOAD in the command line. A window will pop up, where you need to click on Contents. Then, browse to C:\\\\Program Files (x86)\\\\DprCFE16 and select the file DPRACAD.arx. Click on Load and then Close.[^2^]
Step 5: Enjoy DeproRED in AutoCAD

Step 6: Troubleshoot common issues with DeproRED
Although DeproRED 4.1 is a powerful and useful software, it may have some problems or limitations that you need to be aware of. Here are some common issues that you may encounter and how to solve them:
If you get an error message saying \"Unable to load DPRACAD.arx\", it means that you have not copied the DprCFE16 folder to the correct location or you have not given full control permissions to it. Make sure you follow steps 2 and 3 correctly.
If you get an error message saying \"Unable to load DPRACAD.arx (eNotThatKindOfClass)\", it means that you are trying to load DeproRED in an incompatible version of AutoCAD. DeproRED 4.1 only works with AutoCAD versions from 2008 to 2014. If you have a newer version of AutoCAD, you may need to use a different version of DeproRED or a virtual machine.
If some features of DeproRED do not work properly, such as DeproRED Express or copying posts, it may be because they are not fully compatible with 64-bit operating systems or newer versions of AutoCAD. You may need to use a virtual machine with Windows XP and AutoCAD 2008 to use these features.
