What files exactly ?
« on: January 23, 2014, 10:57:43 PM »
If I develop screens for Mach3 and have made my custom changes in Mach3 (setup info, inputs, outputs etc. etc.) what files do I need to save if I had to reinstall Mach3 ?

I'm thinking,

First I need my XML file

Second I need to save my .SET file

Third I need to save the HiddenScript.m1s file if I've made changes to Mach3 pushbutton scripts.

Fourth I need to save all bitmaps I've used in my custom screens.

Is this pretty much all I need to get a fresh copy of Mach3 back to my setup ?

Or am I still missing something ?

  Thanks,
       John

You don't need to save Hiddenscript.m1s
It's just a placeholder file used when editing scripts. The scripts themselves are saved in the .set file

You usually just need the bitmaps, .set file and .xml

If you have any M code macros or Brains, you'll need to save them to. If you've modified any of the default macros (M6Start.m1s), you'll want to save them too.
