New workstation

Legend
Legend

I was given a new workstation, My old one was almost 6 yrs old and I've forgottern where some settings are kept.

 

I use NX9custom so most of my GUI is the same, but things like the ANT colums and layout are not.

 

On the new machine I've installed NX9 and used my NX9custom shortcut to launch.

I've also installed NX10 and plan on setting up NX10custom when i get my current project completed.

When I migrate to NX10, is there a way to save all my NX9 settings,Gui and stuff and start out with that on NX10?

Do you still have access to the old PC?

Look where user.mtx is stored - most of the files you want are in that folder.

There might be some in the registry as well.

Maybe log in, start NX, save a role (to a network drive location) then use that role in the new PC.

You may want to define UGII_USER_DIR to a network drive - that way most of this get ported across workstations.

 

Note sure about upgrading.

Yes, I have access to the old machine. I can RDP into it for about a week so I can remember all the crap I need off of it, then I need to wipe it of non essential software and reconfigure it as a FlexLM, Vero license and Quickbooks DB server to replace an aging WindowXP box.

 

I wear lots of Hats, LOL.

 

Interesting Case design. It's a Rave computer "Cad Beast"

it was all those specs, except the vid card, I opted for a K2200 as the K5200 is overkill for my work.

as much as I love a new computer, getting everything back where I want it is a PITA.

 

While theres no bloatware, I'm surpised 120gb of the SSD was in the WIndows folder. WIndows is the bloatware now
