It could be that you're not licensed for that command. Distribute Annotations checks out the 'nx_drawing_auto' module, so check your license file to see if that module is included.
I would look at the license server log file for NX10 & Nx11 & see what feature(s) it is attempting to check out.
Then compare to the features in the license.
Then ask your sales rep/VAR why the difference...
Production: NX10.0.3.5 MP16/TC11.2
I'd rather be e-steamed than e-diseaseled
