Open older version of NX by double click

Solution Partner Genius Solution Partner Genius

Hello,

 

Does anyone know how to modify so that the .prt of NX opens them with the version I want?

 

Example: I have NX12 and NX10 installed. I would like them to open with NX10

 

I tried to do it changing the variables UGII_BASE_DIR and UGII_ROOT_DIR

 

Should I do it by changing something in the registry? What should I touch?

 

Many thanks in advance and best regards

Hi All!

 

Run regedit

Find  HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\UGpartfile\shell\open\command

Edit Value

ex)

before : "C:\SIEMENS\NX120\UGII\ugs_router.exe"  -ug -use_file_dir  "%1"

after : "C:\SIEMENS\NX120\UGII\ugs_router.exe"  -ug -use_file_dir  "%1" -version=V25.5

Ref. NX7.5 = V25.5 , NX6 = V24.0 , NX8 = V26.0 , NX9 = V27.0 ...

Error example V27 , V28...

 
Have a good day!

Or if you want to have possibility to open part file by right click menu in desired NX version, you can use something mentioned here:

I have searched for that at the beginning of the year.
