I am trying to build an extension to Nimsoft that needs to run on a host that does not have a robot.


Has anyone been able to get the Nimsoft Java SDK to respect the NIMV_CONTIP variable?  Seems from other documentation this variable can be set to indicate where a Nimsoft hub can be located for communication to the bus.


I have tried various iterations of setting the variable in the runtime environment on the host, and on the java statup options with -DNIMV_CONTIP=<ipaddress>


With all of this effort, the value of NIMV_CONTIP is still ""


try {
    System.out.println("NIMENV: NIMV_CONTIP="+ NimVar.getInstance().getAsString(NimVar.NIMV_CONTIP));
} catch (NimException e) {
