I had to recently uninstall and reinstall Navisworks due to a network license agreement.... Long story. Regardless, I've been using Navisworks for almost 4 years now and have grown to love it. All this aside, the icons in my Windows Explorer show an NWF file opening with Adobe. I right click, go to "Open With" and try to reassign it to Navis and it's not listed. So I click browse, go to my file location, and double click "roamer.exe" becuase I believe this to be the correct program. However, when I do so, it does not add this program to the list of available ones. It simply does nothing. Am I using the right program/file?

Hi Jimi,

There's something that's obviously gone wrong with the file association there. I'd recommend reinstalling Navisworks from scratch with full Admin rights, if this is on Vista or Windows 7 it is possible you would also need to right click the installer and 'Run as Administrator'.

If you are still having problems we recommend you log a post on the Navisworks forums: -



Go to Regedit
Scroll down to NWD, NWF, and NWC (NOT .NWD, .NWF, .NWC)
Go To shell -> open -> command
Right click on default and go to modify
Paste in location of roamer file (ie. for 2013 "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Navisworks Simulate 2013\Roamer.exe" "%1")
