power cycle, do you have a heart beat?
I had a heartbeat till I powered cycled, now no heartbeat. I have tried to reflash the board with no success. When I apply power with card in and user button depressed The boards power light comes on but the files do not load. The 4 lights do not light up at all. Here is the last report I had with the beta. There were none in the new cncm folder.report_E415F6F10926-1119204062_2021-01-30_13-25-43.zip
OK! Picked up a usb card reader and when I got home plugged into my office computer and the Hp format utility ran OK on that computer, was using an onboard card reader on a computer at the shop, reformatted and loade files onto card and the BBG took the files this time. Weird and I don't drink. I'll plug it in tomorrow and see what blows. Ha Ha!
OK. Up and running. No Problem this time with install of 4.6. Have no clue what happened on first try. Thanks for the help!

Issues with with going from beta to 4.6. Lost skins for vcp router pro. Not really feeling like doing it all from scratch. Went back to beta. If anyone is having a problem and beta has expired, just roll back calendar to run it. Also did not have access to inputs and outputs and first screen in wizzard.

hey guys you can't use a beta report.zip to upgrade to v4.6! :-))

screen shot your beta software wizard and use the wizard to setup v4.6 if you are coming from a beta, otherwise use a report.zip from v4.5 to update with.

a report from v4.5 will work, mill to mill. lathe to lathe.

do not use a mill v4.5 report and try to use it with the new CNC12 Router version!!

this first Router version has to be setup using the wizard. then subsequent releases can use a Router report to update to the new version.

LOL, that might have been nice to know before I started down that rat hole. I guess I will do it the old fashioned way again then! If i do this a couple more times this year I will have all of the numbers memorized. I will probably even remember how to set up all of WSC numbers and such.


Thanks!

you can copy the tool lib and wcs info files from the old directory so you don't have to hand type them back in.

https://www.centroidcnc.com/centroid_di ... loads.html

you can use a Router v4.6 report to update to v4.62 Router

you can use a v4.5 or v4.6 report.zip to update mill to mill or lathe to lathe v4.62

Thanks Keith, Should I be updating the Windows OS as a part of an upgrade or just leave it as is?

Hello cnckeith.
You can support me in this situation.
I did an upgrade to my three axis vertical milling machine with its
acorn software 12 v_4.5 then upgrade to version 4_62
everything is fine, only when you want to run the machine with a drilling or pocket program etc. This legend of mfunc6.mac appears to me, line246 can you help me solve it since my computer does not run with programs.
I attached report and screen clipping.

Regards. and thanks in advance.
Judah
