The installer wants to put the .exe in the  C:\Program Files(x86) folder. On Win7 the system doesnt allow that unless you run as admin. The common way is to right click on the install file name and select 'Run as'

It places the user files in the folder pointed to by $PROFILE which windows sets to the users path. So if you are running in the admin account you wind up with the files under  in C:\Users\admin\Wizards|Mill.

I suspect when you make your own user folder windows doesnt fix the $PROFILE envvar.

Right now I dont know how to get around this, other than to put your user folder where microsoft wants it, or to manually move the folders after the install to your user folder.

I will continue to work on this.

Brian want to include a post option in V2, but that is going to be at least many months (a year?) from now.

We will have demo systems at cabin fever, both in the seminar and on the exhibit floor Saturday and Sunday and you will be able to use one and try whatever you want.

This whole install thing was done to be compliant with the microsoft requirements for applications. I have to admit I don't like it either, but Brian wants to 'follow the rules'

I have not seen the problem of putting the user files under the admin path- when I have run it they come out as expected under the user name

Did you do a 'Run as' or were you logged in as admin?

Ok, this one looks like the permission problem in win7. You have to run as Administrator to install in win7. Right click on the installer exe file and choose the run as.. choice.

Damn I hate microsoft install issues.

The wizards now use the Microsoft standards for file placement. The exe is installed in c:\ProgramFiles\Wizards\Mill The users files, like job files, tooltable, and gcofe go in C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Wizards\Mill

If you have moved MyDocuments it should not matter but if you have moved your user folder then it will fail.

Did the install run without error, and it is failing on start up of the wizard?

Material.txt is still in the .exe folder instead of the user settings folder. We should correct that to be consistent.

If you do a circle pocket it does a helical ramp, the circle cut does the zig-zag, but in a circular arc. But the helical ramp is in the center, then it works out to the finish edge so the ramp is lost.

The Newfangled wizards are extra $50. They are built into the mach install kit, but for some reason not always the latest version. They can be loaded from this forum, see the topic for 'latest version'

Since I do not own a Tormach I cannot be sure, but I think that is correct.

If its not there you could always use windows search feature, create a new file with the wizard, then search for it.

1) There is no setting for English or Metric Units
2) There is no setting for spindle speed
3) The windows for the numbers are too small and the numbers can get cut off.
4) there ate two settings, wall thickness and the Xo  and Yo that seem to be redundant.

1) You are correct, but just use appropriate numbers and add the G20 or G21 before you run the code.
2) Again, you will have to add that yourself.
3)You must be using metric values. I tried an English sample and the numbers fit ok.
4)Xo and Yo refer to the corner of the stock. The wall thickness lets you cut a slot of less than the whole stock wide.

I tried an example and it seemed to generate good code. Your comment

When I activate it, the machine seems to wander all over the place.
doesn't tell me enough to understand what you see happening.

These are user submitted, unsupported wizards. Kirin did a lot of them when the wizard capability was first added, but I have not seen his name on the list for a while. Maybe he has other interests now. Kirin did good work, and I'm sure the wizard works, but it certainly could use some additional features.

You can use the screen editor and fix these wizards any way you want to if you are willing to learn how to use the tools.

The Newfangled Set costs $50, but it is much more complete and is supported. There is not exactly a slot through operation but the surface or rectangular pocket would do the job.

Ok, we already had that in the code R is set as wxT(" R ") + gcFmt(a.Ztop + jobS.Clear)
