advanced rendering for AutoCAD
I don't know why but render farm hasn't been working for me for the last few updates. I haven't changed anything on my network, just added the new versions of nxt. I keep getting this windows error that tells me “nXt64.exe has stopped working”, “do I want to debug or close program”. It comes up that way on both machines. Both paths are to a shared directory on our server. Deleted the old paths because I thought there was something running in the back ground. Tried to reinstall render farm, still get the same errors. It looks like it starts up fine and looks like it is running in the Render Farm Monitor (0 of 4 tasks completed) and status are both Active, but nothing ever happens.

It's unlikely that updating nXt has made a difference. Try a very simple model first to see if it completes.
do both machines need nxt installed or just the one that starts the farm?
Only the one which generates the files for the farm-- i.e. the machine with your AutoCAD drawing and nXt. You can launch the farm using the nXtFarmMonitor from any machine as well.
It use to work great, now it is not. I will try a smaller model like you said. Anything else i should be looking into? Windows Temp Files, network settings, AV running? It looks like starts and then the error message...
Not yet. First make sure this isn't model specific. Start with a simple model and no materials.
