M6 Manual tool change with Mach 4
« on: January 17, 2016, 03:24:53 PM »
I have the m6.mcs macro from the examples in my profile's macro folder, but the machine isn't stopping on M6.  What do I need to do?

I appreciate the tip but I have taken quite a long look through the forum and the internet for an answer and I think I'm not a bad looker.  I believe I have followed the instructions regarding how to do this and it seems quite simple.  Despite that it doesn't work.

that is a known problem, if you have sim in the plugin folder remove it, run as admin, failing all that do a clean reinstall as admin. if all this fails you have a dependency missing

The problem was what Daz mentioned in a different thread - the function name in the example(!) is in lower case and it has to be in upper case to work (M06 instead of m06).  I wonder how many people get tripped up by this...  Thanks for the help.
