Yes BUT it is always safest to copy your xml file and any other custom files such as screens, macros etc to another folder on your drive  just in case things go wrong.

There is one thing that I have noticed....

Whenever I upgrade, my work offsets disappear.  Not sure why.  I have always wanted to know exactly where the work ofssets were stored and could they be backed up?  Any ideas anyone?

Thanks,
Sid

Hi, Sid

The files your looking for are, Tools3.data-file and fixtures.data-file.

There located at C:\Mach3\Macros\Mach3Mill\ For std. Install location, std. startup profile Mach3Mill

I don't seem to have this problem best I now, I always install on top of old ver. of Mach3.

Hope this Helps, Chip

One thing that will always insure that your personal settings dont get overwritten by standard ones is to create a custom profile.

Hello Guys ,
Sorry for getting on Your tread but I have a custom profile and still, all of the setups for my motor,pins ,etc get reset to Zero on every new download,even when Mach set up says that thecuston profile was copied succesfully. Any ideas of How to stop this ?
It's a real pain every time to reenter all of the values.
Thank You,Marco.

Do you use the mach3mill default shortcut to point to your custom profile?

Thank You,Marco.
