How to transfer mach 4 settings to another computer
« on: March 16, 2021, 04:57:42 PM »
I sold my CNC router but kept my laptop with Mach 4. New owner is using his own laptop and purchasing his own Mach4 license.
How do I send him the settings currently on my computer?
This was easy with Mach3, but I have searched for hours trying to do this with Mach 4 with no luck.
Thanks for any help.

Launch your profile.  Help->Support->Package Current Profile.  Then he imports it with the Mach 4 Launcher.

Correct, the plugins are not copied.  They are assumed to be installed on the target system.  We cant possibly know what dependencies 3rd party plugins have, so we expect people to install them in the manner that the plugin developers provide/suggest.  Sometimes a copy pasta is all that is needed.  But there is no guarantee.
