Can't get license to work. I don't have e-mail on my machine computer so I copied to a thumb drive and put it in the newfangled file.
What did I do wrong? It's a .dat file. It's a new Tormach machine.

The license should be in the base folder, not in the addons or newfangled folder. Im the standard version it shold be C:\Mach\WizLic.dat. I think Tormach uses C:\PCNC\WizLic.dat

I just tried that, still I get message "Unlicensed wizard file". I have the worst luck with downloads.

Art wrote the code that tests the license, I have no idea how it works. Its possible he has a hard coded path, try putting the license at C:\Mach3\WizLic.dat Only other suggestion I have is to request a new license file from the Newfangled site. Send a mail explaning whats happening, Scott will replace your license.

 ???
Unfortunately the zip file I downloaded gives a failure when I try to extract it (several times zip file corrupted)
I repaired it using the repair option of winzip and it worked but still with CRC error announcements.
Can I use this safely on my computer not destroying my 2,79 set?

kind regards,
Andre

Ron....I am a Tormach user with the latest software and get an error when I try to pull the tool info from the table.  It does not recognize the "get tool desc" on line 30.

You may remember me, I am the guy who worked with you on the ability to pull the information from the tool table many months ago.

Any idea what's happening?

Tormach does not have the getToolDesc command in its version. In the most recent version of the wizards I have code that looks to see if the path is not C:\Mach3. It not it is supposed to skip the gettooldesc command and just insert the word 'unknown'

Are you using 2.82 and this is not working?

Ron,

I am using the latest zipped version file I could find called "Newfangled282.zip"

Here is the code I have been using that I added to your screen in a prior version (v2.77) to pull up the tool diameters and descriptions.  It works perfectly.  You may be correct that ToolDesc doesn't work so I use a DRO that pulls up the Tool Description bases on the tool number like Tormach does in their screens. (check out the program line...."SetOemDRO(824,ToolNumber (Dlg1.listbox))    'set minimized Tool#DRO so that TOOLDESC DRO will Update")

Sub main
' read tool info from tool table and update DROs for tool number and dia

Dim ToolNumber (256) As Single
'''''Dim ToolDesc (20) as string
Dim ToolDia (256) As Double
Dim ToolDisplay(256) As String
CurrentTool = 1
ToolCnt=0

For CurrentTool=1 To 255
 
  ''''''ToolDesc (CurrentTool) =
  TempDia = GetToolParam(CurrentTool , 1)
If TempDia>0 Then
   
  ToolNumber (ToolCnt) = CurrentTool
  ToolDia (ToolCnt)= TempDia
  ToolDisplay(ToolCnt) = Format(ToolNumber (ToolCnt),"000")  & "  ("  & Format(ToolDia (ToolCnt),"0.0000") &""")"
  ToolCnt=ToolCnt+1
 End If
 
Next CurrentTool


Begin Dialog ToolBox 256,89, "Select Tool from Tool Table"
  OKButton 204,24,40,14
  CancelButton 204,44,40,14
  ListBox 50,24,128,60, ToolDisplay (),  .listbox
  Text 50,17,128,10,"Tool # (Tool Dia) "
End Dialog



Dim Dlg1 As ToolBox
Button = Dialog (Dlg1)

If Button=0 Then  'cancel button
  Exit Sub
End If
   
   
SetUserDRO(1007, ToolNumber (Dlg1.listbox))
'''''''SetUserLabel (1,ToolDesc(count))
SetUserDRO(1004, ToolDia (Dlg1.listbox))
SetOemDRO(824,ToolNumber (Dlg1.listbox))    'set minimized Tool#DRO so that TOOLDESC DRO will Update
   
End Sub
