External Tool Failure in Navis Manage 2010 Add-in

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I am working with my Autodesk Revit Structure 2010 Suite and used Navis Manage 2010.

I encountered an error when loading the add-in such as Navis Exporter 2010.

I am running Windows 7 64-bit PC.

How can I continue working without getting this error?

External Tool Failure in Navis Manage 2010 Add-in


I think you have a compatibility problem here. Although Autodesk Revit Structure 2010 can be run on 64-bit versions of Windows 7, it’s a different story with Autodesk Navisworks Manage 2010.

This, too, can be installed on 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows. Your operating system is automatically detected during installation and the appropriate version of Autodesk Navisworks will be installed. So there’s nothing to worry about during installation because all configurations are done automatically during setup.

But the only difference is that Autodesk Navisworks Manage 2010 doesn’t run on Windows 7 operating system.

So, to have this problem fixed, you need to have another version of the application that runs on Windows 7.

To have a clearer view, here are the system requirements for Autodesk Navisworks Manage 2010:

  • Pentium 4 3.0GHz, AMD Athlon 3.0GHz, or faster processor

    • Windows XP Professional/Home, 32-bit, Service Pack 2 or 3
    • Windows XP Professional, 64-bit, Service Pack 1
    • Windows Vista Ultimate/Enterprise/Business/Home Premium/Home Basic, 32-bit, Service Pack 1
    • Windows Vista Ultimate/Enterprise/Business/Home Premium, 64-bit, Service Pack 1
  • 512 MB RAM or more recommended for 32-bit and 2 GB for 64-bit

    • Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0, 32-bit, Service Pack 1 or later
    • Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0, 64-bit,
  • 128 MB, true color video card or higher recommended
  • 1024 x 768 minimum screen resolution
  • 800 MB available hard drive space
