Workaround for: Downloading Tutorials & Examples crashes CityEngine

Discussion created by MSpecht-esristaff Employee on Oct 13, 2014

Dear all,

There is an issue with the latest security update of Microsoft's Internet Explorer 11 on Windows.

If you experience crashes when trying to download Examples or Tutorials from within Cityengine, try one of the following:

 

  • remove update KB2977629 from your computer
  • or add the line

          -Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.DefaultType=webkit

     to the CityEngine.ini file (typically in C:\Program Files\Esri\CityEngine2014.1; you must have administrator rights to edit that file so you might need to start notepad.exe as Administrator).
