File Association ?
« on: November 18, 2007, 05:54:31 PM »
When attempting to download attachments from the posts, I get a "Windows File Association... Unknown File Type".
I went to "Folder Options" but am unclear as to what to do from there.
Can anyone help ?
(my 1st PC)
Thanks

Oops just noticed you are new to PCs so if you dont know what I am meaning when I said the extension, it is the  letters after the . (dot) that we need to know ie Mach3.xml (file extension is xml)  or Screen4.exe (file extension is exe)

ok you just need to open it either in Mach by going to the view tab then load screens and browse to the file you downloaded or you can go to Mach3 folder and open Screen4.exe and browse to the file you downloaded.

OKEE DOKEE, that works.
But... it's a Profile Shapes Wizard and it looks like I cannot open it without the license. (coming soon)
Thanks Hood

If its a wizard then place it in the C:\Mach3\Addons folder and you should then be able to start Mach3 and see it by going to the wizards tab.

Hood,
It's in the add-on folder but not in any of the Mach Wizard tabs.
When I try to open the file from the folder, I get a small pop-up window:
               
                      Mach4                                                   X

                      Corrupt install, no license file found. Aborting

Then the agreement window, which is blank.
Then a Mach screen that is also blank. 
I guess I need the license file.
Thanks
