Activation file?
« on: October 07, 2013, 10:32:29 AM »
I purchased Mach3 on a CD.    What is the file name that needs to be copied from the CD to Mach3  to activate?
Thanks Jim

If you got a legit license there should be a Mach1Lic.dat file. Copy that to C:\mach3. If you got your copy of Mcah3 as part of a machine package imported from the far East then you might have a pirated copy. Go to Help->About and see what Mach tells you about the license. If you got the license from a legit OEM you might see OEM_Name######, where the numbers are a serial number.

Thanks Jeff

This is a legitimate license purchased directly from Art soft.

Let me try this.

Thanks,
Jim

ArtSoft should have emailed you the license file then. The license file may also have a number after the .dat, i.e. Mach1Lic.dat.######. You can strip the number off or leave it, Mach will recognize it either way.

That worked, thanks Jeff

That file information got lost somehow in 2012.    I made a hardcopy of that info and cannot find it.
