Hi Keith, in case you didn't see it in the other thread, I can't get my Pro unlock to work with 4.08. It was emailed to me on Aug 18 but I never tried to use it until lathe came out. I have everything installed per your video and working fine but it still says "Acorn free." Will I need a new unlock for the 4.08?

4.06 Pro and Ultimate Licenses work with 4.08
maybe you got one that never worked since you didn't have a chance to try it.
Please post a report.zip file so we can generate you a new Pro License.

OK, will do. Probably tomorrow, I'm on grandkid workshop lock-down for today. The 7 yr. old girl is great. She quietly putters around the shop with scrap wood blocks & drawing on old papers. The 2 1/2 boy is a terrorist. He turns every wheel, flips every switch, turns over every liquid and asks a million times "What's this pappaw, what's this pappaw...." I finally had to give up & lock the door. Give him a few years though & he'll be building race cars & airplanes! :D

Is there any other kinkiness required to do the license unlock other than the file extension change? I downloaded it onto a thumb drive on an internet connected PC, copied it onto the CNC PC & followed the install inst. in the link but CNC12 still says "Acorn free." I'm sure it must be something simple I'm not doing properly.

YAY! I'm a Pro now; if Centroid says so, it must be true! :lol:
