Postby cusoak » Wed Dec 26, 2018 1:03 pm

I had to download V carve Pro to a new windows 10 computer, my old one stop working. I have 2 questions .
How do I get my tool data base moved to the new computer. the old one still runs. so I can get to vcarve pro and open it.
The other question is what is Vtransfer. that icon turn up on my start screen.

If the computers aren't networked then you can just copy the tool database to a USB stick & transfer it to the new machine, just paste it in & when you get the message the file name already exists just overwrite/replace the existing file.
vtransfer I believe is so you can send your gcode files directly to the machine, works with certain controllers but don't know any more than that, doesn't work with mine :lol: :lol:

If you're a modern kinda guy maybe you saved your stuff on a cloud-based drive like onedrive? You might be able to access the tool database that way. ADAIK, you probably need to power up the old computer so you can run the export tool database function.. :|

1. Open old Vcarve Pro
2. Open an existing crv or a new one.
3. Pulldown File/Open Application Data Folder...
4. Copy any of the folders you want to move to new machine (ToolDatabase).
5. Do the same with your new Vcarve, then paste in your copied folders.

Restart Vcarve. Done.....

Vtransfer is for sending code to GRBL based machines as an alternative to the on-line only software that is generally used with those machines.
