Viewing NWD files in IE9

Hi,

 

I am trying to get NWD files to be viewable in IE9, and so far I have no luck.  Below is what I'm using and what I've done.

 

OS: Windows 7 64bit
Browser: IE9 32bit
Plugin: Autodesk Navisworks ActiveX Redistributable 2013
File: gatehouse.nwd
NWD file Path: Same path as the html file

Mime Type is set on the server

 

Using sample code from http://adndevblog.typepad.com/aec/2012/08/enable-event-of-activex-control.html#comment-6a0167607c243...

 

I don't know what the issue is, it just doesn't seem to work.  I either just get a black box or nothing at all as if no plugin is installed.  Is there a step by step procedure I can follow?  Please help.

Hi,

 

As answered in the blog,  Redistributable control of 32bit and 64bit can both be installed on 64bit OS side by side. The Navisworks ActiveX Redistributable Setup.exe in 64bit Navisworks provides the 64bit Redistributable control. So to open it , it requires IE-64bit.
