Some of users of iamcivilengineer.com have encountered a problem while cracking ETABS, the problem is when they used to crack or patch the main file “etabs.exe” the patch program displays an error regarding not able to open the “etabs.exe”. This problem mostly occurs on Windows 7 and Windows 8 because of improved security reasons, the windows blocks the un-necessary opening of programs for smooth working of windows and to ensure safety from virus threats.

To solve this issue you just have to increase the user privileges on “etabs.exe” to open it as an administrator and to modify the file as well, to do so, just find the file in

C:/Program Files/Computers and Structures/ETABS 9/Etabs.exe

This path may vary depending upon the location where you have installed ETABS, right click this file and select Properties, from the properties dialog box click on the Security tab and then click edit as shown;


From the opened dialog box select the username from which you have logged into windows in users and groups and then from “permission for users” make sure to tick mark all the controls as shown;


And then click Apply, Ok and then again Ok

Now just patch the file again from “CENL950.exe” and click patch, and now the file should have been patched successfully as shown;

and that’s all

  2. I clearly followed your instruction but it doesn's work. it still tells me "error: file can not be opened"

    What's the problem? I obviously permitted the security.

  4. I followed these steps and it worked like a charm.
    Initially, the problem persisted. But later, I moved the content of 'crack' folder to 'ETABS 9' folder in the installation directory. Then it worked.
    Thank you for your post.
