Screenset installation
« on: May 04, 2009, 01:17:40 PM »
Hi all,

Yet another problem.

I have downloaded a screen set with the extension .m3s

When i double click it asks what program do i want to use to open it

Any clues

I did a search but nothing showed up

This is the one "Blue Screenset for Lathes"

Where did you get that? screensets should have extensions of either .set, .sset, .lset or finally if its a flash screen then swf

From the download section  ;D

Forgot to add it is not seen in Mach because its the wrong file type

According to the heading as per the picture double clicking it should self install

ah ok, looks like there is such a beast after all, similar I would think to the m3p of the plugins. What version of Mach do you have as it has to be newer than 1.90. If you have that then what you could try is when you double click and it asks what you want to open with browse and choose M3plug.exe.

A ha, some idiot moved that file on my computer thinking it was some unneeded plug-in.

I have now moved it back again and the screenset installed as it should, when it has all the files available

Well done to Hood
