Is anyone using App-V with a CAD package like NX6 or I-DEAS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are considering implementing 4.5, and was wondering if anyone is using it with any of the CAD applications, like NX6, I-DEAS, Katia, etc.  If so, how is performance, are there any problems, etc?

  • Hello,

    never had to sequence and deploy any CAD-software.

    Personally I never had any performance issues (apart from Java) while using an application. Normally there is a slight delay in start-up, but this was vastly improved in the 4.5 release.

    However, there is a performance decrease and this can be noticed - but from what I gathered around the forums - Autodesks applications are widely used and have been done so for a while. Meaning, its probably acceptable.

    The downside is of course that there is not 64-bit client support and CAD programs are usually early adopted in this standard, so any improvements in resource utilization is lost when the 64-bit potential can't be used.
