How to show company name in CAESAR II


When using CAESAR II with network licensing, your company name does not automatically appear in the output reports generated by the program. Instead a message saying ‘Edit company name in <system>\company.txt’ is shown in headers:

The same message appears at the foot of the main program window (the initials SPLM stand for Smartplant License Manager.)

To rectify this, simply follow these steps.
