Move wizard to other folder than c:\Mach3
« on: April 18, 2011, 10:31:55 AM »
I have made a wizard screen with "screen4" (a lot of work) under c:\mach3 installation folder.
In order to move it to another folder, i select "defaults" -> "mach location" and i show the new location.

The problem now is when i open the .set file to edit it,
there are hundreds of messages appearing with an exclamation mark and an OK button,
and there is no written message on them.

After pressing to all OK, the set file opens as well, but
when i press over an image button to edit it, says "Text function file is missing".
I have searched other posts, but i cant find any solution.

My will is to just move the set file under other folder than c:\mach3
Any ideas would help...

Thanks,
Giannis

Screen 4 is not very wizard friendly. I was able to create one, in the appropriate addon folder, but if I didn't change the default location, I couldn't see the bitmaps.

Id say 'dont do that'

Mach has some standards and conventions. It expects to find screen sets in Mach3 folder. It expects to find wizards in Mach3\Addon\WizName If you put .set files eleswhere Mach wont find them.

Screen 4 can handle it all, you just need to tell it where to put the files- it does not know if you are writing a wizard or a base screen set.
