How to transfer NX program settings from one user profile / PC to another

[ Edited ]

Hello Experts,

 

I have to move my windows user profile from my actual pc to a new one.

 

After remembering how complicate and time consuming it was to get NX into the correct configuration state (toolbars, hotkeys, customer defaults) I wonder if there is an easier way to transfer those settings, may be by copying a set of (momentarily unknown) configuration files or registry entries.

 

Does someone know such a set of configuration files or a way to transfer the program settings or a suitable procedure?

Such a procedure could also be used to transfer settings between different users.

 

I use NX 8.5.2 but I'm also interested in other program versions.

 

Any suggestion will be helpful.

Best wishes, Michael

The registry contains the user setting in a sub-key with the version number of key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unigraphics Solutions\NX in your case for NX 8.5 this would be HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unigraphics Solutions\NX\8.5

The other settings are stored in the folder %APPDATA%\..\Local\Unigraphics Solutions\NX85, for newer releases "Unigraphics Solutions" is replaced by Siemens.

Hello Stefan,

 

it sounds good, thank you. Do you use that way for transfering configuration state, too?

 

Best wishes,

Re: How to transfer NX program settings from one user profile / PC to another

We use roaming profiles for our NX users, so we don't have to copy anything to a new machine.

We also don't copy the entire registry, we just set some defaults through log-on scripts.

When migrating from one release to another only a few settings are migrated to make sure there is nothing that corrupts the NX settings.

Have you tried saving a role (resource bar "Roles" tab)

Save to a network location.

The on new PC select that role.

Hello Ken,

 

in your opinion does a role collect all configuration settings like hotkeys, settings for toolbars or ribbons, customer defaults, preferences, templates for post processing and so on?

 

With best regards, Michael

A role only contains tool bars, ribbons, window layout and hotkeys.
