advanced rendering for AutoCAD
Somewhere along the line when we set up our new computer (Win 10) we goofed on the file associations of the material and trees files. The icons within WIndows Explorer don't read...the tree icons are blank and the material icons are all just a red sphere (we associated the material files with XtMaterialEditor64.exe today, trying to fix it....they were previously just blank like the trees).
Under ?, About...it says we are on nXt version 1.0.348
Under ?, RPS License, it says Product: nXtRender for AutoCAD; Version: NK21w 1.0
Hard to select/insert trees and materials without previews...
Any help appreciated...Thanks.

Try the following:
^ This worked....Credit to my associate Al for finding Roy's forum post fix....
This was also part of Roy's instructions....and was required for it to work for us:
"You will need to restart explorer for this to work-- easiest way is to log out and back in."
Thanks, I'll have to remember that trick.
Me as well....Search is our friend.
