To Import your Aspire Version 1.0, 2.0 or 2.5 Tool Database into Aspire Version 3.5 / 4.5 / 8.0
The same instructions also apply to importing in a VCarve Pro older than Version 6.5 into version 6.5 / 7.5 / 8.0
or Cut2D 1.1 into 1.5

1. Open the older version of the application.
2. Create a new file.
3. From the main menu, click Toolpaths, then select Tool Database.

7. Navigate to the location of your old tool database.
In the case of Aspire version 2.5, if you installed the application using the default setup,
on most English versions of Windows, this will be located at:
C:\Program Files\Aspire V2.5\ToolDatabase.
(C:\Program Files (x86)\Aspire V2.5\ToolDatabase - for 64 bit windows).

In the case of VCarve Pro version 5.5, if you installed the application using the default setup,
on most English versions of Windows, this will be located at:
C:\Program Files\VCarve Pro V5.5\ToolDatabase.
(C:\Program Files (x86)\VCarve Pro V5.5\ToolDatabase - for 64 bit windows)

In the case of Cut2D version 1.1, if you installed the application using the default setup,
on most English versions of Windows, this will be located at:
C:\Program Files\Cut2D V1\ToolDatabase.
(C:\Program Files (x86)\Cut2D V1\ToolDatabase - for 64 bit windows).



8. Click on the tools.tool_db file and click Open.

9. Your old tool database will now have been imported in to the later version tool database and be contained in a new group, which has
been given the name New Group.
You can rename this group to be whatever you wish.
