As a follow-up, I've just re-installed 3DNA Windows (x3dna-v2.3.zip) in native Windows environment. I'm convinced that if you added the end slash in your setting of the X3DNA environment variable, as noted in step 4.4 (with the screenshot linked below), 3DNA would work as expected. Please have a try and report back your findings.



Thanks,

Hello,

I did it in windows 10 and I think I put everything okay (I followed all the steps presented here with ConEmu):

The output is:
"C:\Users\Benat\x3dna-v2.3\"

I fixed it creating just another folder for config with the name of "x3dna-v2.3config"

I am just learning how to use the program, I have another issue that I will post in bug reports (but probably is my fault)

Edited: Maybe the .zip you tested is not the same as the uploaded one? And that's why there is something missing?

Thanks for reporting back. I'm surprised to see that with ending slash you could (still) have the originally reported problem. With ConEmu, could you please post back the output of the following commands, preferably with a screenshot?

Code: [Select]
echo %X3DNA%
echo %PATH%

I'm glad to see your smart workaround by creating a x3dna-v2.3config folder.

Thanks,

Xiang-Jun

Great! Please do the following, and report back with a screenshot:

Code: [Select]
dir %X3DNA%config\version
Thanks,

Hello, it says:

"
$ dir %X3DNA%config\version
The volume of unit C has no label.
The serial number of the volume is: A2CF-EF3C
Directory of C:\Users\Benat\x3dna-v2.3\config
05/11/2018  22:15                68 version
               1 file                68 bytes
               0 dirs  101.483.311.104 free bytes

Thanks --- the output result is as expected. Then 3DNA should work with the original config folder, without creating a new x3dna-v2.3config folder. Yours is the first reported 'weird' case. Let's see if other 3DNA users have a similar problem in the future.

Best regards,

Xiang-Jun
