Quickie Tip: Have to reinstall CNC12 software? Take pictures!

Post by martyscncgarage » Sat Sep 30, 2017 10:14 am

If you have your machine up and runnning but for some reason you need to uninstall the software and start from scratch. Here are a couple of tips.

First, do a report, save it in a couple of places. I like to use a USB drive to put a copy there as well as the default directory that CNC12 uses. The Report file contains your machine configuration settings and could be opened for reference. Check this Quickie Tip on saving (and restoring) a report: viewtopic.php?f=60&t=943

Easier yet, open the Wizard and use your camera phone or digital camera to take pictures of each of the pages! That way when you uninstall, and reload CNC12, you can look at the pictures and copy back the settings into the new version of the Wizard. Be sure to double check them.
