Try this:

In explorer, right click on a material file and select "Open with". Then browse to C:\program files\AccuRender nXt and select nXtMaterialEditor64.exe as the program to open it with and set it as the default.

That won't work.  If reinstalling the software  and restarting your machine doesn't work you'll need to run regsvr32 on it, which is a little difficult and technical.  It needs to be run from a command prompt on the file armatthumb.dll-- I can give you detailed instructions for this-- but probably not until Monday at the earliest.

Thank you Roy, i'll wait you. 

Merci

This is Windows 7-- 8 and 10 are similar.  Basically you need to run regsvr32.exe to register the thumbnail handler.  It needs to be run elevated (as an Administrator).

Try the following:

  1. Make sure you're logged in as an Administrator.
  2. In the start menu All Programs->Accessories right click on the Command Prompt applet and select Run as Administrator.
  3. In the command prompt window, navigate to the accurender folder by typing in the cd command with the path usually cd "c:\program files\accurender nxt"
  4. at the new command prompt type: regsvr32 armatthumb64.dll

Let me know if you get any error messages.  You will need to restart explorer for this to work-- easiest way is to log out and back in.

I will try tonight and I let you know.

Thank you again

Éric

It works! Your the best!

Last question:

Is it possible to use for a short period my license on the same machine but two different hardrive an Autocad? Because I'm doiing test with Windows 10 for all my programs before to swicth definitly? If yes let me know how.

Thank you

Éric

For a renderplus license-- Rich or Al will need to respond-- I don't know the answer.

Yes. You should be able to use the same license number for nXtRender on both hard drives.

If using the other hard drive gives the computer a different name, then you may need a new authcode for that hard drive, but we can send you what you need. Load the RPS License dialog and try authorizing it yourself first, using the Check License and Validate button. If that doesn't work, use the "Report Problem..." button to request a new authcode.

Thank you Rich I appreceate it.

Merci

"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."
