Although Nexus may install and function under other Microsoft Windows operating systems, Vicon does not support or recommend this.
Basler video cameras and Nexus 2.10
If Basler digital cameras will be connected to Nexus 2.10, ensure you have updated to the Basler Pylon5 SDK and drivers (v5.0.0), which are available from the Vicon website.
If you are using an Intel i340, i350 or i210 network card, when you install the drivers, select the option for Filter drivers, not Performance drivers.
MATLAB and Nexus 2.10
If you are planning to use MATLAB with Nexus 2.10, ensure that, in addition to installing MATLAB, you install the .Net Framework version 4.5 or later.
ProCalc and Nexus 2.10
To run ProCalc with Vicon Nexus 2.10, you must install ProCalc 1.2.1 or later.
Vicon IMUs and Nexus 2.10

Before you install Vicon Nexus 2.10, note the following limitations on supported systems:
This section describes functionality that is dependent upon the version of Vicon Nexus that is being upgraded:
Although data collected in Nexus 2.10 (ie, . c3d files) can be viewed in earlier releases of Nexus, you cannot reprocess this data (ie, . x2d with . xcp files) in releases earlier than 2.7.
Improvements to camera calibration that were provided by Nexus 2.7 have the following effects on compatibility of data between releases:
If you are upgrading from a previous version of Nexus 2, during installation a dialog box gives you the option of adding the Auto Intelligent Gap Fill button and/or the Add to Quick Report button to your Nexus toolbar. For more information on these features, see Automatically fill gaps in trial data in the Vicon Nexus User Guide and Quick Reports in the Vicon Nexus Reference Guide . To add the additional button(s) to your toolbar, click Upgrade Files.
On first launch, Nexus 2.10 scans the installation directories of earlier versions of Nexus 2 and offers to automatically transfer custom objects that it finds.
If you click Import Files, Nexus 2.10 copies custom calibration objects from earlier versions of Nexus (2.0 and later) to the Public Documents folder (eg C:\Users\Public\Documents\Vicon\Nexus2.x\CalibrationObjects).
When you create new custom calibration objects, ensure you save them into this folder (not to the Nexus installation folder), so that they are available to future versions of Nexus.
This section applies only to versions of Nexus that are earlier than 2.0.
Nexus 2.10 installs into its own folder, called Nexus2.10. If you already have Nexus 1.x installed, it will remain installed alongside the new Nexus installation.
On installation, Nexus 2.10 automatically scans for Nexus 1.x files, displays a list of any older files that it finds, and provides an automated system for importing these into Nexus 2.10.
This process copies all the old files and converts the copies, ensuring that original files are not moved, altered, or destroyed.
Custom pipelines are not copied from earlier versions of Nexus, so if you want to use your old pipelines, copy them from the following Vicon product installation folder (by default in C:\Program Files (x86)\Vicon or C:\Program Files\Vicon):
and paste them to the following location in the Vicon production installation folder (by default in C:\Program Files (x86)\Vicon or C:\Program Files\Vicon):
They will then be available in the Legacy pipeline operations in Nexus 2.10.
