AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I have a WinXP64 on which the farm will not start. Any suggestions? I've tried both the 32 and 64 bit with no luck. 

When I start the Farm, it shows in the Processes tab for a second then goes away.

I forgot to add that the Farm Monitor does work on that computer, but not the Farm.

It's likely an older machine without sse2-- nXt won't run on these.  If you can figure out the processor let me know.

It's a Core2 Duo E8500. The Farm works fine on some of the E8400's in the office.

Not the sse problem then-- something else.  Is the farm licensed?

SOLVED: Okay, I figured out how to license the farm without running the actual Farm. Once licensed, it opened right up and went straight to work! 

Yes and no. I do have a license, but the Farm won't start so I can't enter the key.

Here's what worked for me.

(only issue with win7-64bit for me)

Right click, nxtfarm icon and use "run as administator" at start up.

Then go to bottom toolbar and find icon and right click use restore

It runs then. It then pops up in the monitor.

Farm monitor with only run on NXT rendering computer not the slaves.

Not sure if this is how it is?

The farm shouldn't have to run as admin.  The Monitor should be able to run on any machine.

When licensing nodes you need to shut down the other (running) nodes first.  This is required because if an unlicensed node detects two other nodes running it refuses to start.  This is likely what Garret ran into.  The procedure for licensing nodes is outlined here.

"I really have no idea.  This software hasn't been supported for more than a decade.  Anything you can get to work will be fine from a licensing perspective, I just don't have much to offer you."

Accurender 3 + Acad ADT3 + Windows 10

Wonder if anyone can help. At home I run Windows 7, at work I have Windows 10.At home I use Accurender 3 with Acad ADT3, installed by loading my old Accurender 3 disk, the  downloading the latest *arx file, which I see on my home computer is Accuren3_2000.Can I still download the Accuren3_2000 update from anywhere, and will it work with the office set up anyway? I have tried simply copying the Accuren3_2000.arx from home to work into the Accurender folder in the usual location, but when trying…See More

"I'm guessing it's the same problem.  nXt has to be present for a conversion to work properly with a drawing that has nXt data.  That's a known issue.  Converting using any other method probably will not work properly if…"

"I think Norton mentioned that he did the conversion using TrueView, not the AutoCAD itself. He is still on ver. 2010 I suppose, otherwise he could do renderings directly in 2018. Maybe TrueView isn't quite versionwise correct as regards to…"

"One additional thought.  A known issue when saving drawings to a previous version is that nXt must be loaded and running before you convert the drawing. Try the following: 1. Open your 2018 drawing in AutoCAD. 2. Start nXt by typing…"
