AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Dear Roy

I understand you answered this question and I have also experience
with these appload etc. procedures.

In the past I had no problem with uploading nxt into 2008, when I
purchased few months ago, since then I had problem with my hard driver and now
replaced all with new HD's and re-installed all new software’s.

AR4 works fine, NXT into Architecture 2011 works fine, but to appload
into architecture 2008 gave me today hard time.

I had reinstalled nxt 7 times with running 2008 or not running, I
tried to applaod and followed all I know but the magic tool pallet on the side
is not willing to showup, unable, unable to load etc.

I even reinstalled Architecture 2008 just incase one picks up the
other but no luck.

In Accurender 4, in programme files in ar4 you have
'AR4AutoloadManager.exe' which shows you the AutoCAD releases that on your
computer plus tick box, but in nxt no such file.

Is there any other way of doing, I cant break it please help.

 

They say the one who brought the devil takes him out.

Regards

Alexander

Which file are you attempting to appload?

As below

 

AccuRender nXt64.arx,

 

Also tried

AccuRender nXt_18_64.arx

aracad64.arx

ArAcObjects2008_64.arx

 

No luck

 

Thanks

Do you get an error message when you try to appload AccuRender nXt64.arx?  If so-- what is it?

No error, just in the appload window unable to load, could you email if you have file without 64 prefix so I could try, AccuRender nXt.arx

 

Thanks

There should be a message on the command line after you dismiss the appload box.  

 

If this is a 32 bit version of AutoCAD you will need to download and install the 32 bit package.

It is a tricky installation, architecture 2008 will not work with 64bit sytem so there was a way to overcome this issue long story, but a 32bit 2008 is installed into 64bit machine, and all works until now, you are correct I followed hidden message and it says,,accuRender nXt64.arx is incompatible with this version of AutoCAD,, so could you kindly if you have one email me just accuRender nXt.arx or accuRender nXt32.arx which ever exist, my system is 64bit but one autocad is 32bit working in 64bit system

I dont know how I managed to make it work on my old machine before, but on this one not happening.

Alternative is to install 32bit I am not sure if it gona work.

 

Thanks 

It should work.  Download and install the 32 bit version-- it will install to a different folder-- Program Files (x86)-- on your 64 bit machine.  When you appload to 2008 make sure you use the 32 bit version.  The 64 bit version should continue to work-- but you'll need to verify.
Thanks will let you know how it works.

Roy Thanks

 

32bit is installed into 64bit machine, all works fine, it is a good plus and flexibility that your software not restricting to 'pc' operating system.

 

Let this be a good feedback.

Thanks

Alex

It wasn't really designed to run this way, so it is possible that you'll notice some odd behavior down the road.  In particular, Windows is supposed to segregate the 32 bit and 64 bit application registry keys, but it's a mechanism I'm not very familiar with.  Let me know if you run into any weird behavior.

"ARDECAL now works. Here's the image after 10 minutes of rendering. I do have a slight concern that reflective surfaces seem rather dull. This is particularly evident on the end frame of the desk and the base of the chair."
