Gadgets for V8

Post by joeporter »

I just purchased the new version of Aspire. All is well with the install, everything seems to work OK. However, the gadgets I had in the older version didn't automatically cross over to the new version. Do I have to re-load all the gadgets from Vectric or is there an easier way to move them on my computer? Any help would be appreciated....joe

Easiest way is to re-install them unless you're confident using Windows.

They are installed in your Public Documents folder under Vectric Files if you want to try copying them manually.

Have you downloaded the gadgets from the gadgets site again or are you using the install files you used to install previously?

redownloaded, I deleted the old ones didn't want to check version numbers and I figured the gadgets would have to be installed anyway.

I've raised a query with Vectric as gadget installation into V8 was working but like you I can't get any of them to install directly.

Good to hear that a gadget copy will work. I'll try that tonight. Otherwise...AWESOME.

As an aside, I do indexing work so I looked at the Wrapped Job Setup Gadget to see if it was enhanced in any way. Unfortunately not but I noticed that the Rounding Toolpath is now gone from this gadget. Is there a way to get that piece of the gadget back? I use it every time as I find it more precise than cutting the corners off my stock on the tablesaw.

Hi,

The gadget installers on gadgets.vectric.com have now been updated for V8.

Hi All,

You can download the rounding toolpath gadget here

http://www.vectric.eu/update/gadgets/v7 ... nstall.exe

This will not install in the same place as it would have done with the software installation and will not appear under the wrapping section in the gadgets menu, it will now appear as any other gadget you install, directly in the gadgets menu with the title of Create Rounding Toolpath.

Thank you all, have a good weekend.

Sean

Good on you Sean. You saved my sanity.
It was on my PC, but not my laptop (the working machine) but both loaded from the same disk!
Even after a reload! I'm now in business.
