Hi all,


I have a question for you:


is possible to install the graphics builder on a server machine without Nx and use it with a client machine with Nx?


I try but when I start the Graphics builder from Classification Admin I have this message:


 The graphics builder activation failed


The configuration is: Tc10.1 + Nx8.5


Can anyone helf me?

You can only install the graphics builder on a machine with NX installed, the installation will check if NX is present.

You should be able to install the graphics builder on the client.

You have to install NX with three features on server at least:





I have configuration like this and it works. Three features installed on server (server manager) and graphics builder.

And TCCS must be installed on server, too. Just run TCBaseVersion_INSTALLATION_DISTRIBUTIVE\additional_applications\tccs_install\tccsinst.exe. And do not forget install appropriate patch
