AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I have to manually appload nXt every time I open AutoCAD 2019.

How do I get it to load automatically?

Could you try running:



C:\Program Files\AccuRender nXt

It is supposed to get run during the install to add the AccuRender module to the registry, so that the registry looks like this:

Can you look at your registry and see if that worked for you?



Yes, that worked.

Thanks very much.

Did you only have to tun the program ArAcadReg.exe?



Yes. Then I opened up AutoCAD and typed nXt and it worked.

However, having closed AutoCAD down and started it again, it's stopped working again.

I wonder what could be causing that.

Can you look at the registry and see if something looks different that what I posted above?

No, it looks the same.

If I run ArAcadReg.exe and then open AutoCAD, it works the first time.

Does it make any difference that I'm actually using AutoCAD Mechanical?

It all works fine with Mechanical 2018.

I don't know why that would be. I can try to get a copy of AutoCAD Mechanical and try it here.

It works with AutoCAD Mechanical 2017.

I can duplicate this with Mechanical 2019.

The registry "LOADER" entry is not getting set properly when I run Mechanical 2019. It does work correctly for me when I run the modules AutoCAD Architecure 2019.

I'll see if I can figure out why it is failing in Mechanical.

We fixed this and posted a new version on the download page.

See if this works better for you.

You will either need to run ArAcadReg.exe again, or use _appload to load the module the first time.

Yes, that's fixed now.

Thank you.
