Dear Art, the great god of turning,

Yes, Yes, Yes, I right clicked the executable and made the change you suggested, and it works to save the .tap on Vista now.  

Thanks!
Barry

Rich:

  It always was my plan to port LT back to LC, to put the new dxf loader in there, and the new optimiser..etc.. LazyTurn is much more accepted Ive noticed, it loads more then LC, and it rarely gives errors, so its code would be nioce to have ported to lazycam. Its my intent to do so and then remove the turn section in LC altogether. Its bad code, ( licenced at great cost .. ), and LT seems to do better for the most part. We'll see where we are when I finally give you a finishing pass..

 Make sure the screenfile is named *.lset not just *.set

Dennis:

 If mach3 loads a screen file with *.lset as its name, it starts up in lathe mode, if not, then its mill mode.

 So if your lset file is bad, try reinstalling mach. Or load 1024.lset  as your screen set.

Hi Art
Well it's getting toward the end of the year and i am told it's starting to get cold up in Canada so do you think we'll see a finished pass this year of will it be next year before it's working?

  Yup, getting colder.  Ive already laid Termpest to rest fer a bit so I can refocus on LTurn. Ive been investigating this week exactly how the finish pass
might work, with luck it may be by the end of the year or perhaps sooner.. depends on how those investigations go. :)
