License file not updating
« on: October 10, 2013, 09:32:03 AM »
Hi, Newbie here trying to just get and I know this has probably been asked but I don't seem to see the answer.

Is there a log file somewhere that could give hints to why the license file is not being read/seen?

I am using Mach3 R3.043.066 version on XP with a license file I just purchased from CNC4PC. I copied the file as it came to the C:\Mach3\ directory. Everything I read that should be all I have to do. Wondering if the file got corrupted somehow or something like that by email etc.

Hi Marc,

Welcome to the forum.

Perhaps check that you have only one Mach3 folder and that the license file you copied to it is called   Mach1Lic.dat

Tweakie,

Thanks. I know there is only one Mach3 folder but that was not the name of the file I was given so let me change the name to that and see what happens. The filename given was WizLic.dat so that hopefully is the problem.

I will try tonight and report back.

Thanks,

Marc Davis

Hi Marc,

That sounds like you have the license file for the Wizards Set which is not the same thing as the Mach3 license. If you contact CNC4PC directly they will be able to sort it out.

Thanks.
 
I will also contact them directly to see what they say also. I double checked what I ordered and it was the Mach 3 license and not the Mach3 addon license so I don't think I messed up the order. :)

Thanks all. CNC4PC got back to me and got a corrected license file now all is running properly.

Thanks for the help.
