Navisworks 2010 Tip; Where the heck is NWCOUT?


Chris Perry and I got a case where a user could not run NWCOUT at the command line. That was the case where the ARX downloaded from http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/pc/item?siteID=123112&id=13947462 was not loaded into his AutoCAD 2010 MEP even after installation. We are not sure why this happened but we were able to duplicate it on a training machine. Using the search on Chris’s machine and a training machine we found out the nwexport2010.arx file was in different folder locations on each machine!

So the procedure recommended would to run a search for the location of the nwexport2010.arx file. Open the AutoCAD seat and type ARX then browse to the folder containing the nwexport2010.arx file to load it.

Customers like the way he provides the details they need to understand both the techniques and the underlying concepts.
