Trouble getting cnc piranha_inch.pp to download to my progra

Postby larryw591 » Tue Jun 26, 2018 6:35 pm

The tech people at Vectric have been very cooperative with this problem but to no avail it wants to down load to the Postp section of the program as an html program instead of a pp Has anyone else had this problem??

Where are you downloading it from? Have you tried a different browser? I've noticed Microsoft Edge does some weird things when downloading files from some websites.

What is "it"? Using a pronoun with no precedent noun makes it difficult to help.

Having said that: with the Windows save dialog you can select "All files" from the "Save as type:" drop-down selection and "it" should keep the .pp extension when saving the file.

I contacted the tech support people at Vectric and they sent me a link to download the Piranha PP the next day. Works fine.

Hello larryw591,

I have just posted this to another forum post.
Please copy the attached file to the "PostP" folder of PhotoVCarve trial edition.

This is usually located at "C\Program Files (x86)\PhotoVCarve Trial\PostP"
(Assuming a 64 bit edition of Microsoft Windows).

Once you have copied the new post processor, exit the application and restart it.
The new post processor will be labelled as "CNCPiranha (inch) (*.tap)" in the list of post processors.
Please give this a try with your machine.
Any problems please let me know.

I hope that this helps.
