Installation problems Mac OS X 10.10.5

Hey everyone,

 

I'm using NX11.0 for my study. After hours of trying to install NX11 on my MacBook Pro I'm asking you for help. I already installed XQuartz and Java on my Mac. After completing the installation of NX11 I tried to run NX. NX showed after a few second it's startup screen but it shutdown directly after that. I tried to restart my Mac but it didn't solve the problem. I hope that anyone here can help me.

Hi Benny,

 

you failed to mention on which Mac OS version you've installed NX11.

Also do mention which XQuartz version you've installed, I noticed that XQuartz 2.7.10 and 2.7.11 cause NX11 to NOT start on “El Capitan” and “Sierra”, with XQuartz 2.7.9 it works fine.

 

P.S. I couldn't see your movie.

 

Kind regards,

Aurelio Martinez

Hi Benny,

 

sorry, it's in the header, Mac OS X 10.10.5, so please check the XQuartz version first.

 

Kind regards,

Yes, I know, this is the Documentation for NX.

Here you can also find the information for other NX versions, supported platforms, etc.

 

Thanks anyway.

Hi,

 

on Yosemite you first need to install XQuartz version 2.7.9 (beware, v2.7.10 and 2.7.11 don't work with NX).

 

Depending on the license file you have, you need to install the SPLM License Server (server license),

or just point to the license file (node-locked license) during NX installation.

 

For NX11 :

 

  • Run “nx110.mpkg” to do the installation
  • Accept the “28000@servername” entry to the License Server, or browse to the license file
  • License Tools --> Bundles are available and can be chosen
    Applications - Siemens – NX11.0 Apps - NX Licensing Tools - Licensing Tool

Start NX11.0 --> Applications - Siemens – NX11.0 Apps – NX11.0

Hereafter you can also install Maintenance Release NX11.0.2.7

 

Kind regards,
