OrthoVista Path Changed with Upgrade


The OrthoVista path changed after installing the latest version and now GeoCue cannot find the executables and fails with the error,

“Error Generating Mosaic Product: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
 at GeoCue.RapidOrtho.OVProductGen.Run() in n:\Framework\XCs\RapidOrtho\GCOVProcessing\OVProductGen.cs:line 35″

Probable Resolution:

  1. Go to C:\ProgramData
  2. Create (if it doesn’t exist) C:\ProgramData\GeoCue\RapidOrtho
  3. Go to that folder and create a text file named, “DSSPaths.txt”
  4. In that file write the full path of the orthovista.exe, such as “C:\Program Files\Trimble\Trimble Photogrammetry 8.0\bin\orthovista.exe”. Ensure there are no spaces on either end of line.
