Active Workspace 3.4 embedded in NX and Open in NX command

Missing the Open in NX commands in Active Workspace 3.4 embedded in NX 11.0.2

I've performed the BMIDE Model Update mentioned in SFB-NX-8001706 without success.

 

The Open in NX commands are available in AWC Web Client but missing in AWC NX integration. Does anybody help me to find out what's missing?

Using TC 11.4

It seems this BUG hasn't been fixed yet.

PR Number: 8990058 says it will be fixed with NX version 12.0.1 and Active Workspace 3.4 but even this combination isn't working... :-(

 

I'm going to create a new IR

Active Workspace replaces the Teamcenter Navigator when using NX Embedded unless you set UGII_ENABLE_TC_NAVIGATOR=1 (default in 12.0.1).

I assume you have already installed features:
Teamcenter Integration for NX > NX Foundation
Teamcenter Integration for NX > NX Rich Client Integration
Active Workspace > Server Extensions > NX for Active Workspace
Active Workspace > Client > NX Integration

And set preferences:
ActiveWorkspaceHosting.URL=http://your-server:your-port/awc
ActiveWorkspaceHosting.NX.URL=http://your-server:your-port/awc

Validate preferences (which objects can be opened):
AWC_NX_OpenSupportTypes
AWC_NX_AddComponentSupportedTypes

Are you seeing "openinnx.nxtcxml" being downloaded when opening part from AW? Opening the nxtcxml file should kick-off the "Router" to launch NX.

Everything is properly setup. The nxtcxml is downloading - Routing window appears - NX splash screen appears - that's it!? Nothing happens anymore.

I tried to modify the registry command and all the options which takes the nxtcxml file to open the ugrouter.exe - unfortunately no success.

It doesn't sound like a router issue since you are seeing the splash screen instead of "Failed to start application UGManager". Sounds more like a startup issue. I'm not familiar with how AW launches NXManager (beyond opening nxtcxml) and cannot help further. In the Rich Client the script start_nxmanager.bat is called and the location for the bat is recorded in the registry:
HKCR\ugmportalfile\Shell\Open\command
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\ugmportal\Shell\Open\command
