    Default Running Navisworks in a remote session

    Is it possible to install Navisworks simulate on the company cloud and run in a remote session?
    Currently, We're running AutoCAD/REVIT 2014 from the cloud. But for Navisworks (AFAIK) it should be installed separately on each PC for better performance. Any ideas?
    Regards

    Define "on the company cloud" - Navisworks doesn't have a 360 version yet.

    If you mean running it via Citrix or similar means check your licensing very closely - you aren't allowed to do that without special and specific licensing.

    If you mean using Remote Desktop, Autodesk Remote, or similar systems that shouldn't be a problem, but doing so with the intention of having many users regularly access a single/limited pool of licenses might be in violation of the EULA.
    If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.
    Some say beauty is in the eye of the Beholder... perhaps so, but I've only seen the disintegration beam.
    Everyone else being wrong is not the same thing as being right.

    We've 10 powerfull machines within the company and for some users ,our PCs are not powerful enough to handle large revit files. So, we remoltly access the more powerful cloud machines for this reason.And for sure we're not violatting EULA.
    We,ve already installed Navisworks simulate 2014 on one machine. but when i open ,i get a dialoge box stating that Navisworks is graphically demanding and running in a remote session will affect perfomance. i'll check with our MIS dept. to install directly on my PC.

    Just a note, Glue is pretty much NW on the cloud.
    As for running it remotely, shouldnt be a problem except for graphic like you've already seen. From there it will depend on your usage. If you want to do presentation, it's a no go. If its for clash detection then no problem.
