update program

Postby thomas61 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 3:35 pm

Hello all, New to the forum...1st timer. I am having troubles finding where to download the latest version. Top right corner states a new version of Vcarve Pro is available. Where?
Second question...when I open vcarve I get a box about migration. What is this? Thanks

Click on the message at the top right hand corner and it will take you there.

The box about migration is for when you have done an update, it's asking you which settings etc you want to move from the old version to the new version.

When I click on the location for the download, it looks like I have to download the whole program again. Is there a place just to down load the update or do I have to download the whole program.

Some updates like V8 to V9 and V9 to V9.5 are complete program installs. Others like 9.5 to 9.51 are updates to the program itself and not complete installs.

Hello,
ok, I made migration to 9.5 from 9.0.
but I cannot open version 9.0 projects.
How to convert them?

Vcarve is fully backwards compatabile so you can open all v9 (and previous version) projects in v9.5. There is no need to do any conversion.

You might have messed up the windows file associations somehow so double clicking the file could be trying to open a version that no longer exists on your computer. If you open them from within a VCarve session there shouldn't be a problem.

You can reset the program used to open CRV files from the Windows control panel or file association app.

Correct... easiest way is to right click on one of those .crv files from Explorer and select "open with" and chose default program... find the vcarve program and be sure to put a check mark in the "always use the selected program to open this kind of file".
