I’m posting a summary of the solution found by the developer team at Boole & Partners in conjunction with Sandis, thank you to all for resolving.

Following a number of tests both within and external to Polyboard, the key issue related to the length of the file path to the conversion location. The recommendation was to rename the *.TLGX tool file to a much shorter name (ideally 3 characters), then to enter this new file name in the “Tools” section of Polyboard’s post processor.

In this case, and we believe due the Maestro configuration, it was also necessary for Polyboard to be opened using the ‘Run as Administrator’ facility.

It is possible to set up your computer to use this facility every time you open Polyboard. To do this, right click on the Polyboard icon on your desktop, select Properties > Shortcut > Advanced and check ‘Run as Administrator’ there:

Hi, 

I’ve received a reply from one of our clients who has sent me her working post processor set up for Pgmx

I’m also discussing with the development team to see if they have a solution

Cheers, Alex

We have clients working with xconverter to directly process pgmx files.

I’ll wait for their reply to see if I forgot a configuration!

Cheers Alex

Hi Alex.

Spoke with SCM…

Basically they told me, that they are not sure how others got it working. He told that XConverter is not supposed to open like WinXIso converter. As that`s the way how they protect they software from 3rd parties.

So now i wonder you others have managed to set up XConverter to create pgmx, as it clearly says on website – ”Xilog Maestro files also available on request (set up for the .pgmx XConverter).” Also Ness pointed out on other my question on forum that PB6 can export(convert to) pgmx.

So any other ideas/workaround how to set it up?

That’s also what I thought since my 2nd reply to your question.

I also  think that there is incompatibility with windows x64
You can also try to reinstall Maestro and if possible import xxl from the new installation, re-save them in pgmx (or copy it directly from the SCM installation CD)

I’ve tried doing this myself but my Maestro installation was blocked asking for a license number.

Hope this is helpful.

All the best,

Alex

have you set tools files to  “DEF.TLGX” ?  

Hi Alex.

Tool file is set to MorbidelliM200f.tlgx

We have two CNC machines, so have renamed tool files accordingly. 

Just to make sure – i did try def.tlgx and it did not work.

By the way – if i set Polyboard to convert files to pgm with WinXiso – it works fine – pgm files are created. So it is just XConverter.

Tomorrow morning will get SCM to have a look on XConverter. I cant even open XConverter to convert files manually (WinXIso works fine manually). Maybe ”faulty” XConverter…

Will let you know what they will say.

Regards

Sandis

hi, 

can you try to set machine type to maestro morbidel into post pro setup?

cheers, Alex  

Hi Alex.

Still same – only xxl files are created. I assume that pgmx would be in same folder as xxl files, right?

Hi Alex.

Nop, it didn`t work unfortunately. On PP report shows only xxl files, and in folder too there are only XXL and report.

Any other ideas?

Hi.

As per topic – cant get Xconverter to convert XXL automatically to pgmx.

Have set it to use XConverter and proper path to it. Do i need to convert files manually or it should be automatic when posted with post processor?

Also can`t find any info or explanation for post processor settings. Maybe somebody have something lying around? 

Thanks.

Sandis.
