This is a duplicate of the original thread. The server did not seem to react so I pressed the submit button again - feel free to remove the thread. Regarding the beta 10: Tried it, looks like a great improvement overall but is totally useless with NX because the button assignments do not appear on t...

Hi Jim, thanks for the feedback. With my solution I don't need to run anything as admin. What I do is redirect any tries of your 3dxsrv process to do a journal hook playback into my own code which then plays the recorded sequence back with SendInput instead. The code kind of mediates between your pr...

Hi Barbara, I resolved the issue myself with round about 150 lines of code that redirect your non working Journal-Playback experiment (:wink:) into SendInput() calls that are NOT blocked by UAC. Looking through the threads I've seen that the issue seems to exist for a pretty long time. Is it ok for ...

Did a little tracing: The call that leads to the error tries to install a journal playback hook. Makes sense although a simple ::SendInput(...) would work too and would not pose a problem regarding the UAC stuff. Wish I had the code to fix it myself instead of waiting :wink: Module: SendKey.dll Call...

No workarounds till it is fixed in the next release? I was hoping that I can use the MS Application Compatibility Toolkit to define an application fix for the 3dxsrv.exe that takes care of the UAC issue. Of course it would help to get a little more info from your side on the problem we are seeing he...

Hi Barbara,

already tried starting 3dxsrv.exe as admin - doesn't help.
I've disabled UAC entirely now and indeed it works!

Of course I need to turn it on again but tracking down the problem usually is 90% of the solution. ;-) Any suggestions?

Cheers,
Ruben

Found a post from one of your colleagues that actually describes doing exactly what I'm trying to do... maybe it helps solving the problem:

Hi Barbara, thanks for the fast anwer again :-) Forget the beta driver for now. Annoying, but back to the actual problem: I don't have the slightest problem following the steps and I fully understand that the button assignment needs to be done in the NX plugin in order to not get things mixed up. Th...

Just installed the 3dxware 10 beta. With this version the space pilot does not even display the button assignments when in NX. Instead it reads "Application use" on every button. This is all beyond annoying!!!!! C'mon - setting UNDO on a button for NX? Using custom keystrokes? Using the beta version...

Custom functions

I'm trying to assign Ctrl-Z to one of the SpacePilot buttons using the "custom functions" functionality. Can't get it to work. I can record the keystrokes and assign the new function to a button but they are not played back. Even checked with a own test program and no WM_KEYDOWN/UP reaches the windo...

Never mind. I found myself the solution / actual problem. The Problem: 3dx software seems to misuse the windows user locale setting in order to determine the ui language. The input language setting would be much more reasonable. Check the msdn - user locale is just for formatting numbers, dates and ...

Thanks for the very fast reply! Could you please clarify what setting you did exactly change in the "Region and Language" options? None of the settings under "Format" or "Location" are settings that I can change without affecting the whole system. I'm actually in Germany and need them the way they a...
