When this happens, in NX go to

File -> Help -> Log file

search for the NX CAM configuration file you selected/use (e.g. cam_general.dat)

there should be a line about what keyword is missing

Hi,

 

indeed,
LIBRARY_MULTITOOL,${UGII_CAM_LIBRARY_TOOL_ASCII_DIR}multitool_ascii.def,${UGII_CAM_LIBRARY_TOOL_ASCII_DIR}multitool_ascii.tcl
was missing,

 

 QTAC support pointed out those files are new for 12.0.2 and advised to add them, but we missed the line above.

And they advised to limit our customisation more to not the complete MACH\recource

Mini benchmark just to see what's going on...

 

This is on a Windows 7 HP Z240, Intel Xeon 3.60GHz, 32.0 GB RAM  w/ NVMe SAMSUNG MZVPV512 SSD

 

Install NX 12.0.0: 13 min (11 min 2nd attempt)

Upgrade NX 12.0.0 --> NX 12.0.1: 27 min

Upgrade NX 12.0.0 --> NX 12.0.2: 33 min

Upgrade NX 12.0.1 --> NX 12.0.2: 25 mins (24 mins 2nd attempt)

Uninstall NX 12.0.2: 32 mins

Delete NX 12.0.0, install NX12.0.2: 15 mins

 

I'm not getting anywhere near the times that have been posted.  More than likely due to using SSD vs HDD.

I'm guessing network is the issue.

I did one install from a network drive to SSD - was about 1.5 hours

I copied the .ZIP files from network drive to my SSD - 1.2 hours just to copy (on LAN)!

I didn't time the unzip or install (started & walked away, came back a couple hours later & it was done)

 

Note we also have all sorts of virus / file scanning going on, which will impact times (I'm not sure how much, however).

Using SSDs here exclusively, no need for HDDs any more.

Installing over the network, since installing hundred clients when we release NX 12 to production.

Anti Virus software is always turned off entirely during any installation, not just suspended.

Moving installation files onto the clients disk is not an option currently.

My be our software NAS is the bottleneck Robot Sad Robot Mad
