Error Bad Size when launching Nx 8.5

asked in General Forum by (160 points)


we have a problem on a user's computer.
When we launche NX 8.5, we got an error message "Bad Size (-2145386498) for allocation request"
We managed to work around the problem by creating a new session windows.
Unfortunately he met this problem every 3 weeks.
Have you ever encountered this problem and how did you resolve it?
Thank you.

We had same issue with a user running win7 x64 and nx8.0. I foound out it worked with another user that never was logged on before so it had to be something with local user setting checked registry for user but it was not the problem. it was in the stored local user profile  c:\users\%userprofile%\appdata\local\Unigraphics Solutions\nx8

By Deleting the NX8 entry it will at next start of NX8 create a new directory and it will all work. A tip could be to always make a copy of entry before delete anything.
