I just re-installed my MEP and NW Review. I read that NW had to be installed *after* MEP which is what I did. Also did the same (diff machine) with vanilla acad 2011 and now all the NW commands work there. None of them work for me. Do I need to re-install or does in not work with MEP?

Hello dumfatnhappy2 ,
I believe what you are experiencing is a direct result of having more than one AutoCAD installed. The installer saw the first AutoCAD and installed it there. I would expect that if you only had MEP installed, it would have installed the module into MEP instead of regular AutoCAD.
I seem to have managed to get this module working in both my ACAD 2011 and ACAD MEP 2011 installs on the same computer. I have both Navigator and Switchback working properly. Let’s try my process to see if it helps:
1.) Open your Control Panel and your installed programs list
2.) Access the Autodesk Navisworks 2011 64 bit Exporter Plug-ins
3.) Click “Uninstall/Change”
4.) Click “Add or Remove Features”.
5.) UNCHECK the AutoCAD 2011 (64-bit) Plugin entry.
6.) Click “Next”.
7.) Follow the prompts to UNINSTALL the plugin.
8.) After this is through access the Control Panel and your installed programs list again.
9.) Access the Autodesk Navisworks 2011 64 bit Exporter Plug-ins
10.) Click “Uninstall/Change”
11.) Click “Add or Remove Features”.
12.) Click “Restore Defaults”. This should select the AutoCAD 64 bit plugin entry we just uninstalled (or it may already be selected by default).
13.) Click “Next” and follow the prompts to install.

Hi David, I don't think you understand.... if I'm running MEP 2011 and Navis 2010, Navis does not have the ability to see into the future (if you will). Therefore it's not an option. If I upgrade to Navis 2011.... it's not a problem
This is expected behaviour, at the time of Navisworks 2010 release we do not know what changes will be implemented in any for the 2011 MEP release or even further ahead.
You can install the Navisworks 2011 exporters from here without installing the full 2011 Manage or Simulate
