mach 3 license
« on: June 02, 2009, 08:24:41 PM »
I'm having trouble storing my Mach3 license in the mach3 folder.I drag it to the folder and check to see if it's there
in help (about mach3 cnc controller) and my name appears.When I exit out of mach3 and bring it back up the next
time my name is no longer there is says demo version.Am I doing something wrong?
Ps I am draging it to the mach3mill icon on my desktop

What? That is not how you move a file! You need to open the Mach installation folder which is usually c:\mach and drag the license file to that folder...

You can also right click on the licence file and paste it into the Mach 3 folder as Jeff mentioned, that way you still have the original as a backup.

I think a lot of the trouble with installing a license is that people drag or copy the license folder to Mach instead of the license file. Made that mistake a few times.
