MSDX

Post by Richard Sands » Sun Aug 12, 2012 12:51 am

Does this replace Microsurvey Transfer?
It mentions 'Direct connection to MsTransfer' but not sure if it's needed when I gather MSDX imports FG projects.
If not can both be loaded on a computer or does one conflict with another?
I gather this works without a dongle so presumably if one has left that at office we can use this to download and browse an FG job whilst out and about.

I guess others may be wondering also. I looked about but couldn't find mention of it on site so please correct/ ignore if I've missed something.

regards
Richard

Hi Richard, MSDX uses MicroSurvey Transfer just like MSCAD does, but comes with it already installed. MSDX has the same FieldGenius Upload/Download and Import/Export commands that are in MSCAD, but without most of the additional survey and CAD functionality that MSCAD has. MSDX and MSCAD will co-exist peacefully on the same computer, and you're correct that MSDX doesn't need use the USB key so you can still run it if you don't have the dongle with you.

Thanks Brian
Will play with it.
For others - it's a hefty download, 200+mb, so if on slow download be aware.
