AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I have encountered a problem in AccuRender 4, which I hope someone can help solve.  In order to place "exterior" light sources, I need to open the Contents browser.  But when I click on Contents, I get the message "This file must be present to allow the IExtractIcon interface to work".  I have no idea how to fix this.  I did a complete un-install and re-install of AccuRender, which did not solve the problem.

This has made it impossible to do Interior renderings using interior lighting, because it tells me that exterior light sources are required to do interior lighting.  Because Contents won't open, I can't (edit) place exterior light sources.

I've also noticed that placing ceiling wall-washer lights doesn't show the illumination.  The lights themselves show, but no lighting effects.  I tried lowering the lights .5" below the ceiling, thinking that the ceiling itself might be interfering, but that didn't solve the problem.

Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Tom

New install posted with Support folder included.

It turned out that the Support folder had been left out in the latest 64 bit nXtRender install, so the nXt material Editor was not showing the sample rendered image correctly.We posted a new install with th Support folder included again. The new install file name ends with QF23c.Here is the direct link to it: http://www.renderplus.com/downloads/nXtRender/arnxt64_0358-QF23c.exeor you can download…See More

"Great, thank you! I've got the export working now. I was hoping it would export more of what I'd already set up in nXt. It converted most of my materials to Studio equivalents, which aren't as sophisticated (metals are more…"
