No, there are 2 similar values- G90/91 refer to the coordinates of X and Y moves. The big circles are caused by the I,J coordinates of the G2,G3 commands.

The big circle travels is an indication you have the IJ mode set differently  in StickFont and Mach. The wizards are based on IJ in Relative mode, not absolute.
You select the IJ mode in the Config->General page.

either mode is correct, but the mode used must be the same in the code generation and the running.  I do not know how to change the mode for StickFont.

How do you have your Mach system set  for IJ mode on circles? It ought to be for relative IJ values. The setting is on the Config->General page, near the center of the second column.

I do not quite understand what you are doing. Are you trying to take code created by StickFonts and insert it into the wizard code?

I cannot control any gcode entered in the user code box, so there may be an error in that code which cause mach to stop processing it and looses the rectangle. Maybe you cold run the stickFont program first, then run the wizard to do the rectangle around it.

You must use Run as admin on Win8. Right click on the install file and one of the choices is Run as Admin.

It does run on a win 8 tablet, I have one and seeing it run was the reason I bought the tablet.

On the machine that has a license you can generate gcode.

On any other machine you can run in demo mode. In demo mode you can build a complete job, then save the job file. Take the job file to the machine with the license, open the job file and generate the gcode.

I see several places that you have F0.0 This can only happen if you have a zero feed rate on the tool select. Please save and post here a job file. That will show me exactly what was entered.

The license file is generated for a specific machine. That license will not run on any other machine.

You can install the wizard without a license file and work on a project, and see the tool path, but not save the G code. You can save a job file, take that to the licensed machine and generate the G code. No parallel port is needed, the wizard will run on any windows system. I run it on a win8 tablet for shows.

Thanks for letting me know the solution. I like to see all of these problems solved.

Where you put the license file that was sent to you is unimportant. Put it anywhere you will not loose it. I keep a 'License' folder in MyDocuments where I put a copy of all my license files.

When you run the load license button on the about screen it will read the file it is pointed to and place the string it needs into the .ini file

If that doesn't work then all I can guess is the original license file has been corrupted, so having Scott verify wold be a good check.

Changing the version should not affect the license, unless you do an Uninstall first.

When the About box opens it tests to see if a valid license exists. If you click the 'Load License File' button it attempts to load a file, but that doesn't re-check the license. It is necessary to exit from the About box, then re-open it so the license check can be made. If it still says demo it means the license file was not valid.

The license is stored in the NfsMill.ini file which is in your application data folder. That is C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Wizards\Mill.  That file must be there, and not be set to read only. The installer tests to see if it exists, and does not replace it when you install.

Did you uninstall first?
Did you make some hardware change that might invalidate your license?
