Any body know the method to assure 2012 and 2013 NWDOUT arx programs are correctly registered to their respective applications?
Running both and 2013 fails without message - 2012 displays dialog requesting user select 2012 / 2013 nwout commands.
Thanks in advance
The NWDOUT command is no longer available in the 2012 or 2013 version of the exporters. However, you should be able to run NWCOUT to export to an NWC file. Are you able to export through the NWCOUT command in AutoCAD 2013?
If you are running into issues exporting, you should be able to manually uninstall/reinstall the exporters:
1. Open Control Panel > Programs
2. Select Autodesk Navisworks 2013 64-bit Exporter Plugins in the list of plugins
3. Select File > Uninstall/Change
4. In the installer window, select Add or Remove Features
5. Unmark the AutoCAD 2013 checkbox and click Update to uninstall the 2013 plugin and click update
6. Repeat steps 1-4,
7. Leave AutoCAD 2013 marked to install the plugin and click update
If you have further issues, try using the APPLOAD command to load the nwexport2013.arx from the 2013 exporter for AutoCAD 2013 found under the folder :
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared\Navisworks\2013\nwexport2013
John, I've placed typos in my orig post- (Me not paying attention)
NWLOAD is the command not NWCout
That aside this method may correct registration and I will do that ASAP... and report back.
John, I've confirmed the process you outlined (I understand the approach and it should preform as you expected) does not work on this machine.
I suspect it's part of the protection Intel has placed on the hard drives. My approach is now to involve IT and ask an Enterprise Admin to execute the change under their login.
Currently no matter what I do no changes take place - the reinstall/change always resets to "defaults" - You simply can not modify the exporters.
While this issue was not resolved, the SSD on this computer did fail right after this problem. After receiving the new drive, Installing autocad 2012, then Object Enablers, then Navis 2012, testing switch back, then same process with 2013, both versions worked.
