JT2Go changes file type associations

I'm experiencing the following trouble using JT2go and TC Vis:

The default program with which JT files are opened changes with each start of JT2go and TC Vis. Always the latest used program is used.

While this is not a major issue with TC Vis as it is the main working tool, it is an issue with JT2go as it is only used in some cases and then disrupts workflows.

Is there any way (like a start-up parameter e.g.) to prevent JT2go to change these automatic file type associations? And -by the way- are there any other start-up parameters?

Best regards,

At this time, that is the way TcVis and JT2Go work - there is no way to alter the behavior at this time.   The TcVis team would be responsible for any type of change to this behavior.  My suggestion is that you log an IR against TcVis through the GTAC website.



What is JT?

JT is the World’s Most Widely Used 3D File Format for PLM

JT is the common language of PLM and is the world’s most widely used 3D format. JT is the first ISO International Standard ( IS 14306-1) for 3D visualization and collaboration. Compact and accurate, JT is used throughout the product development lifecycle in all major industries to communicate the critical design information typically locked up inside a CAD file.

Siemens PLM Software customers rely on JT to be the most robust 3D visualization format available.
