license.dat vs entering unlock #?

Post by Thinkin »

I'm finally getting my Allin1DC up and running. all the paperwork and demos show a press F1 in the f7 Utility>F8 Option screen but all I have is a f2 option to enter a license.dat. Is there a way around this or do I need to contact centroid to get them to send me this license file?

Yes, you either need to get a license file from Centroid (for CNC12 v4.16 or later); or you need to install CNC12 v4.14 instead.

Centroid Servo 4.16 changed to a table d'hote pricing scheme from the previous a la carte method. This document explains the change: https://www.centroidcnc.com/centroid_di ... ctions.pdf

Confidence is the feeling you have before you fully understand the situation.
I have CDO. It's like OCD, but the letters are where they should be.

When did you buy your All in One and what did you pay for it? What did Centroid Email you?
I would go with 4.16 and use the new software package program:

I bought straight from centroid. I still have their email, I’ll just give them a shout. Thanks.

If there is a newer version of the software I should probably start there. This is my first centroid swap so I’m not worried about re-learning anything.
