When running NX you are presented with an error: General Fault Exception. Reading the NX syslog you find text similar to the following:
NXOpen.Utilities.MissingResourceException: Assembly has not been compiled with an NX resource bundle
at NXOpen.Utilities.ResourceUtilities..ctor(Byte assemblyData)
at NXOpen.Utilities.BaseSession.verifyAssembly(String filename, Boolean& alliance_mode, SignatureTypesignTypeNeeded)
Caught exception while running: StartupSystem.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer

Solution The error can occur because an NXOpen program was written but wasn't signed with a valid license to operate as a stand alone dll. This will required an NXOpen author license to be present. If a valid NXOpen author license isn't present, the dll will fail validation, crashing NX.
Either remove the dll from the UGII_USER_DIR, or connect to a license server that will allow NX to obtain a valid NXOpen author license, and NX should run normally.
