Mach upgrade
« on: December 27, 2008, 06:20:16 PM »
Hi all, Hope your Holidays are going well.

Are upgrades of Mach free of charge? Also my shop computer is not hooked to the internet soooo. Can any one recommend how I can do the up grade if I'm aloud? I am not great with computers so take it easy on me!! Could I download the upgrade on a flash card and take it to the shop computer?

Thanks for your help,
Nick

What you might want to do is copy your xml file before you upgrade just in case anything goes wrong, not likely to but ......
The xml will be in the Mach3 folder on your drive and will be called Mach3Mill.xml if you use the standard Mill profile, Mach3Turn.xml if using standard turn etc etc. If you have a cistom profile it will be called  the name of your profile.xml.

When you get it downloaded just transfer to the shop computer and  double clcik on it and it will upgrade for you. If anything does go wrong and you lose your profile then just paste the copy you made back into the Mach3 folder :)

How do you normally start Mach? is it a desktop icon or is it the Mach loader? If the loader is the name of your profile in there?

It is a desk top icon called Mach loader. I click on that and it brings up a small window (Session Profile) with 4 choices ; M3 Mill, M3 turn, Plasma, Tribal Router. The last one being mine . I click on that and it brings up the control screen with tribal router in the lower left hand corner profile box.

I also noticed that it still said 2.0 before the screen stated up??? I'm lost..............
