Transitioning pre-v12 installations
All pre-v12 Code Generator, Custom Tool Graphics, JOF, MCL, PCB, etc. files are compatible with later versions. After installing the new version, copy all custom files to the new location, or point your installation to any custom material that can, or should stay put.
The Configuration Directory can be found by opening Help - About. The configuration directory is shown at the bottom of this form.
For example in the old
[IconBar] SetupFile=P:\User\custom.bar Position=LEFT Defaults=c:\sm9\SHARED\ICON\ICONBAR.DEF IconSize=SMALL
Be sure the new one looks like this:
[IconBar] SetupFile=P:\User\custom.bar Position=LEFT Defaults=C:\Program Files\SmartCAM\SmartCAMv14\SHARED\ICON\ICONBAR.DEF IconSize=SMALL
Or in the old
[UserMenu] MenuName1= Clamp Check MenuPcb1= C:\sm9\SHARED\cl_chk.pcb MenuName2= MenuPcb2=
Should look like this in the new one:
[UserMenu] UserMenuName=Diane's Tools MenuName1=Dynamic Nest MenuPcb1=C:\Program Files\SmartCAM\SmartCAMv14\SHARED\mover.pcb MenuName2=Clamp Check MenuPcb2=C:\sm9\SHARED\cl_chk.pcb MenuName3= MenuPcb3=
There will certainly be more, but your older installation is not affected by the new install. Leave your old install running for a time until you are sure that you have transitioned everything.
