Initializing the Environment

  • When installing the MultiCAx media, all the references will be made to CATIA. This is not a problem and will not affect the product behavior. But it will create shortcuts and environment with CATIA names.
  • Activating the cache does not modify the performances of an interactive insert since the data are not generated in the cache but in the directory referenced by the setting Output Path.
  • The cache is only useful in CATPart mode so that the CATPart generated is not loaded by default (but this does not affect the conversion performances).
  • For direct mode only: when launching V5, it is strongly advised to use either the shortcut generated during installation process or to use the "catstart" method described in the Infrastructure User Guide.
    If you really want to launch V5 by double-clicking the executable located in intel_a\code\bin or through the command line, you need to make sure that the PATH variable contains a reference to the intel_a\code\bin directory of your current installation.
    set PATH=C:\Program Files\Dassault Systemes\V5R16\intel_a\code\bin;%PATH%
    C:\Program Files\Dassault Systemes\V5R16\intel_a\code\bin\CNEXT.exe
    (or DMU.exe or DELMIA.exe)
