Very Important: Per vendor support, this software must be installed by the user who will use it, and that user must have admin rights on the machine. If installed by another used (like say, SYSTEM), you'll see an error like this:
To resolve that error, uninstall CADpack; Their
instructions suggested to delete C:\Program Files (x86)\HMI\CADPack first but I
did not have to do that.
SCCM admins, note that to make it install under the user's credentials, it is not enough to login as the user and start the install from Software Center. You must change the installation behavior on the Deployment Type (User Experience tab) to "Install for user".
