I guess that I will try the newer version..Do I need to uninstall the 1.84 version before installing the new version??

Yes, uninstall the older. Before you do, back up your XML. file, screen set, and if you have any KeyGrabber profiles, back those up as well.
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

The XML file is in the Mach folder??  is this where my settings for things like pin settings and motor tuning are??..I live pretty plain..no screen sets or key grabbers  ...after backing up the XML file , do I just insert it into the new Mach folder with my licence too?

You shouldn't have to unless there is a problem. You're only backing them up as a precaution, in case they are overwritten.

I could not sleep thinking about this, so i am back.

I ran the file on 2.007 but when I have gone through the code I have put a D on every G41/42 line so thats why it looks fine as far as the offset been on.

Well,I took off the older version and installed version R2.0.024...It worked!!!  Graham..sorry about your sleepless night,but I can tell that you are a dedicated Man to this subject and you take this moderator stuff seriously!!..But I just can't believe that I am the only one that has had this going off course problem..Anyway maybe this will be the end of it...This G41-42 stuff..Putting in a P (radius) works for me if that is what needs to be done..Or a D # if it works that way too..Thank you Gentleman for the hard work..Michael

Hi Guys:

  Sorry, I only just caught this thread. You dont need anything after a G41, the currrent tool will be used, You can use the P to sepcify a diamter, or a D to specify a tool to get the diamter from.

  Radius comp has had alot of work done to it lately, it was buggy on some file before. Take note there are two modes, the original mode is selected in the config/ports&Pins/mill options, or you can select advanced comp. Advanced comp is easier to use, it does have as many rules to using it, but it was buggy for soem file types, depended alot on the moves. Always simulate a comp program offline first to be sure it isnt opne with trouble. Send me any tap files that are a problem, its how I fix the comp, I keep tweaking it to recognise that code..

Thanks
Art

But make sure you have an M6 T# to set the current tool. By default the current tool in my setup was tool #0.
