I'm currently operating Aspire v9.519 and attempted to install the Chamfer gadget. However, I received error messages that read;
Failed to install gadget
Failed to extract vgadget archive.
Request assistance in resolving this issue however, if a solution to this situation can't be found are other options available?

Hi Stephen,

Make sure you downloaded the correct gadget version.

There are 3 different versions. You need to download the one(s) compatible for your 9.5 software.

Thanks for the assistance verified the correct version downloaded it and the gadget works like a charm. I'd like to utilize a 0.5 vbit 90 degree however, when I click on the desired bit the only options are an end mill or a ball nose bit not the vbit any suggestions.

The idea of the chamfer gadget is that it cuts chamfers without needing a v-bit to do it so it works with endmills and ballmills instead.
