What is the file extension 'jnlp'?

What ports do I need to allow for ICEvision to run?

ICEvision requires outbound TCP ports 10022 and 10023 to be open for connections through a firewall.

I have a Mac with the latest software updates, why won't ICEvision run?

Make sure you meet the minimum hardware requirements. Java 6 may need to be enabled. In Finder->Applications expand "Utilities->Java". Open Java Preferences, make sure Java SE 6 64-bit is first in the "Java application versions" list (it is recommend you actually do this for both, although not necessary), if not drag it to the top of the list and close Java Preferences.

I have a 3DConnexion mouse, why doesn't it work?

We have recently upgraded the driver for the 3D mouse to improve performance and reliability. To use the 3D mouse open "View" and choose "Connect 3D Navigator".

I have a 64 bit system, can I use ICEvision?

Yes. You must be asubscriber. Click to access the ICEvision 64 bit Launcher.

I'm still having problems viewing and publishing large files with my 64 bit system.

If you have additional memory available, try allocating more memory to ICEvision using the ICEvision 64 bit Launcher. If you need help on memory allocation, contact support at info@ice-edge.com.

My screen is flickering.

  • If you experience flickering in the ICEvision window, please update the driver for your graphics card to the most recent update.
  • If you are using an nVidia graphics card and still experience flickering after updating your driver, restoring default settings and then turning off Threaded Optimization and Unified Back/Depth Buffer may resolve these issues.
  • If you continue to experience flickering, please contact us at info@ice-edge.com

I clicked 'Capture' in the ICEvision menu, in AutoCAD/Revit/Google Sketchup Pro and nothing happened!

  • Please make sure you have started the correct ICEvision version and have logged in. If you are using AutoCAD or Google Sketchup Pro, make sure you select "Connect" before you run the "Capture".
  • Some larger designs may take a minute or two to fully render. Remember this is a 3D environment and some designs are not created at ground level (for example, if you designed only the 15th floor of a building) - try moving or looking up!

I could view my designs yesterday, but not today. What happened?

  • If you are a subscriber and your subscription period expires, your designs will no longer be available. If you re-subscribe they will be available again.
  • If you are a viewer, the individual sharing their design with you may have removed your name from the shared list.
