NX X Why does a 3rd party translator call NX component run_manged.exe?

NX Open



Customer determined (via 3rd party debug log) that a 3rd party translator that he installed on same host with NX 1847 called


Since the translator was a 3rd party product, why would such a product call a component of NX?


3rd party translator contained additional features which used the NX/OPEN API interface.

Run_managed.exe is a standalone executable that runs a managed NXOpen.EXE in the correct environment allowing it to pick up other DLLs from the install when they are not in the same directory as the .EXE itself.

This is a documented feature of NX/OPEN.

nx_managed.exe provides a well documented method to allow 3rd party software vendors write custom code to use features exposed by the NX/OPEN API interface.
