I have a dwg created in Plant 3D, and want it to display correctly in Microstation CONNECT Updt 4, installed on 64-bit Windows 10. Message Center advised me I was missing an Object Enabler.
Guided by this
I've tried installing these
The 32-bit version refuses to install due to the 64-bit OS, and the 64-bit version won't advance once it claims I don't have "AutoCAD based products" installed (which I don't, but I thought it would recognise Bentley's RealDWG 2014 and adapt to that).
Have also tried 32 & 64 bit Object Enablers for 2015, 2016 & 2017... no luck. Suspect I may be going about this the wrong way. Any advice?
Note: I have both Microstation SS3 & CONNECT Updt 4 installed, but need to use CONNECT as the primary work space.
You probably want to check with Autodesk and find out whether or not Plant3d object enabler supports any RealDWG host application but AutoCAD. Last time I tried this OE on first release of CONNECT, it worked, albeit with additional manual work that was supposed to be done by its installer. Now that its 2017 version does not appear to work on RealDWG2017 at all, even with the same workaround I did before. That leads me to think that maybe Autodesk has decided no longer to support RealDWG host apps other than AutoCAD. In general, if an object enabler supports RealDWG, its installer can/should find RealDWG host app (AutoCAD, MicroStation, etc) and then installs components on all host applications selected by the user. Civil3d is such an example. It correctly follows Autodesk's recommendations. End users do not have to do additional work in order to install and run the OE. Some object enablers can run on a RealDWG host application, but their installers do not bother to do the right job finding RealDWG hosts and installing the programs correctly. CADWorx is such an example. You'd have to manually add its registries and copy files by your self. If done it correctly for the host app, however, the OE should eventually run. There exist other "object enablers" that simply do not support RealDWG host application other than AutoCAD. Raster Designer is such an example. It really is an "add-on" application on AutoCAD, as opposed to an object enabler that should not depend on AutoCAD.
