3Dconnexion SpaceMouse not working with NX18xx

Legend
Legend

Any of you managed to find a workaround to get your SpaceMouse to work in NX? Or at least to get it to keep its User Profiles. 

 

Since NX1859 I am getting nowhere. Losing User Profile, buttons can't be configured to NX's features anymore (as shown in attached visual, the NX feature is missing), NX's log file reports using the DLL from \v1847\Start-up, although this still does not work until you manually create a second folder for the version of NX you have, and still, not getting anywhere... UG_APP_NOPART etc etc... (rant over!).

 

Workaround that "used" to work below, but not anymore. So what's the new tWeAk to get this to work again?

Workaround:

 

1. Windows > Environment Variables > Remove the extra "\" at the end of the var string (old bug)

Variable name: UGII_3DCONNEXION_DIR

Variable value: C:\Program Files\3Dconnexion\3DxWare\3DxNX64\ugii_dir

 

2. To force the v1847, you need to edit ugii_env_ug.dat like so

#UGII_3DCONNEXION_LIBRARY=${UGII_3DCONNEXION_DIR}\${UGII_VERSION}\startup\3DxNX.dll
UGII_3DCONNEXION_LIBRARY=${UGII_3DCONNEXION_DIR}\v1847\startup\3DxNX.dll

 

This was accomplished with the newly released V.15 drivers from 3DConnexion. Regardless, for this driver to work you still need to edit the ugii_env_ug.dat and force v1847. Creating a folder e.g. v1859 as per old trick doesn't work anymore.

 

Hope this helps anyone
