How to change the network port (NIC) selection in Paradigm LightDesigner?

Question

Paradigm LightDesigner tells me no network is available despite having the IP settings on my PC. How do I change which network port (NIC) LightDesigner should use to talk to my system?

Answer

  1. Open LightDesigner and a configuration. Create one from scratch if you do not have any available to open on your PC.
  2. Click on the Tools menu, then select Preferences:

  5. Click OK on that prompt, and then close and re-start LightDesigner to begin using the new NIC selection.
