Why OPIM stress Isometric does not create a drawing file or OPIM does not start from inside of AutoPIPE model?
Perform the following:
1. Open any model in AutoPIPE
2. Try to start OPIM from inside of AutoPIPE, OPIM fails to start.
Does OPIM start from the command inside of AutoPIPE?
If Yes, ignore the following. There is a different reason why the program is not generating an stress iso.
If No, then your computer may be affected by your IT department's disabled access to the Registry or key folders required for standard users using AutoPIPE
Registry access was disabled for standard users, this was causing the OPIM module to not open from with AutoPIPE and during Stress Iso creation process. This can be fixed by modifying the isometrics_ce.bat file to not use REG.exe to build paths to the executable and also not use a variable, i.e. the path to the OPIM executable was hardcoded where it was required in the batch file.
Another reason, IT department did not provide user permissions to the Program Files / Program Data folders.
