Technical specifications and recommendations
The Facad Ortho Tracing software can either be installed
- locally on a PC
- recommended for single usage on an appointed workstation, licensed with a fix license
- in a shared folder on a server
- recommended for usage from more than one workstation, licensed with a fix license valid for each workstation, or with a floating license valid for simultaneous usage from several workstations
When the software is installed in a shared folder on a server, no local installations should be made – you only need a short-cut to the installed program.
This short-cut is created by the program itself the first time it is run.

High screen resolution
The Facad software is not designed to run on high screen resolution laptops. Doing so anyway may result in undesirable effects in for instance text and icon sizing.
On laptops and image displays with a very high resolution, Windows applies display scaling that in some cases might result in undesired fuzzy fonts or really tiny icons and text sizes. This functionality can be set to work better by adjusting the executable’s properties (right-click on Facad.exe and select Properties).
Windows 8.1 and Windows 10
Go to the Compatibility tab and tick the check-box Disable display scaling on high DPI settings.
In newer updates of Windows 10, it looks slightly different. Go to the Compatibility tab, and tick the check-box Override high DPI scaling behaviour. Scaling performed by: and select System.
