Author Topic: How can I copy & send my XML file w/o also sending my license code?  (Read 2378 times)

0 Members and 1 Guest are viewing this topic.

A member on another forum has purchased the same CNC router, controller, & design/toolpath software I have. He's also using Mach3, but I don't know if he's purchased a licnese for it or not.  He's requested that I send him my system profile XML file to make his setup easy. I'm good with that, but I don't want to send him the XML profile with my Mach3 License code in it.

How do I remove my license code from the XML file? Can I just open the file in a text editor and remove the line of code with the license number?

Thanks,
Chris

The license code is not in the .xml file. The license is a separate file.

There is actually a line about 20 - 25 lines down from the top of the XML file that has what I believe to be my Mach3 serial number. I can just ignore that it's there and send the file? I just want to make sure I don't violate my license.

Thanks,

No worries Chris, as Gerry has said your .xml file does not contain any license information (other than the last user name or serial number) so it is perfectly safe to send.

The license team are wise to the many scams that have been used to falsely try and obtain licenses.  ;)

Thanks!  Just making sure I don't give something away.
