NX Errors extracting the multi-volume NX12.0.1 installation kit

NX System Administration



Cannot extract the NX12.0.1 download *.ZIP file. The user receives the error;

'The same volume can not be used as both the source and destination'


This error, and similar errors, are caused by using an out of date extraction

The download zip file for NX 12.0.1 has been split into 3 smaller files using
WinZip instead of one large file. This has been done to make downloading
without a download manager more reliable as the download time for each portion
is shorter. This is done to avoid network timeout or other issues which result
in failed downloads. Because of this change, you will need to use WinZip or
7-Zip to extract the downloaded files.

For NX 12.0.1, there are 3 parts to the .zip file:

nx-12.0.1.r1.zip, nx-12.0.1.r1.z01 and nx-12.0.1.r1.z02

You will need to download all three parts into the same location and then use
WinZip or 7-Zip to begin the extraction on the nx-12.0.1.zip file. Extracting
all files from the nx-12.0.1.zip file will extract the files from all 3 parts.
You DO NOT need to run WinZIp or 7-Zip against the .z01 and .z02 files. This
will be done automatically when extracting the .zip file.

If you receive this error when extracting the .zip file with WINZip, then you
are using an older (unsupported) version of WINZip. I suggested the user try
the extraction with 7-zip,

You can download the most recent version of 7-Zip at;


To work around this error, install the latest version of 7-Zip and re-extract
the .zip archive.
