Registry Keys / EnablePvrFileHandlingFix

Akos Karoczkai


When exporting (publishing or uploading) a BIMx hypermodel, the publisher may not be able to save the 3D data of the hypermodel.


The problem is that either the user’s Operating System login name or the publishing pathcontains double byte characters (eg. japanese, chinese ).
