Data carrier

Dear All,

i have some Clarification and information regarding DMS

in my configuration i have defined only one Datacarrier ie Default PC, will this do all the need full, or will lead to to any complication in any aspect,

i want to know what is the Advantages of defining many datacarriers or the Limitation of a single Datacarrier.

iam facing a situation where a particular software say PDF reader or AutoCAD, is not installed in all the System. and iam thinking of installing this Software in a particular System or say in the Content Server system.

can this software be made used to view these cad and Pdf files on the front end system where this software is not installed,

Say in a particular PC the software AutoCAD is not installed and if he wants to View the AutoCAD file,

another problem iam facing is

and while Creating a New AutoCAD file in my system through DMS Create, it gives a message "Drawing file is not Valid"

while i can create a Word Doc File, but it is not possible to create a new AutoCAD file throuh DMS, (AutoCAD is Installed in my system)

also i have no idea of how to create a New Data carrier type,

what exactly have to be filled in

1, define data carrier type

2, define server and files or folder

3, identify frontend computers

Please suggest, points will be awarded for sure.

Thanks and Regards
