Hi Michel!

Installed back old version of Maestro, all files are stored in one place and PB creates pgmx correctly.

Reinstalled new version again, re-installed PB (so it can re-check all folder locations as you suggested), and it didn't work at all - no pgmx were created.

Checked again folders:

XConverter is stored in - C:\Program Files (x86)\SCM Group\Maestro.

Cfgx, Settings and Tlgx folders are stored in - C:\Users\Public\Documents\SCM Group\Maestro.

So, after copying Cfgx, Settings and Tlgx folders to C:\Program Files (x86)\SCM Group\Maestro, PB creates pgmx programs, but still partly!

I would want to think it should create all programs or nothing! Don`t understand how it can work partly if something would be missing.

For some materials it creates all pgmx programs, for others some. Attached is pic for example - can see in folder how many are there/missing xxl/pgmx.

Hi Sandis

PolyBoard identifies the path to Maestro upon its initial installation,
but it cannot identify further path changes due to updates.

If all XXL files are exported, then you must check:

1- did you change the path for all Post-Processors?
(in case of a Multi Post-Processor)

2- Are all tools properly defined in your toolbox?

 

regards

Michel

Hi Guys.

Have update on my previous post. 

Anyway – had to update Maestro to newer version. After update, I noticed that XConverter didnt work. Figured out that they had changed folders where Maestro is stored, and if i copied tooling folder to folder where Xconverter is, then it was working fine, kind of.

It works partly… I have project with different materials. When Post-processing using SuperPP or just normal PP different folders are created for each material as supposed to. But when it comes to creating .pgmx it does it for one type of material, and then stops creating them on other. If Post-Processed whole project then can even end up with half .pgmx created and second half are missing .pgmx files! .xxl files are created every time.

So I`m ending up with missing pgmx programs(a lot of them), that i need for machining. Was trying all around but without lack.

Please let me know how can I fix that, as all projects at standby as cant create programs.

 

Regards

Sandis

P.s – wild guess – could it be something with folder locations? As previously you found out that tooling file name was too long, and needed to reduce it shorter for it to work.
