Chamfer gadget install issue

Post by mday »

I have tried to install this gadget and there is nothing to install. See attached screenshot. I re-downloaded it, rebooted, ran as administrator, etc. No change.

I solved it. There are 2 Chamfer gadget files floating around out there.
If you Google "Chamfer in Vcarve Pro", it brings you to a page where you can download an EXE file. This file doesn't install anything.
If you go to Vectric's homepage and drill down to Gadgets, and click on the Chamfer gadget, you get the .vgadget file that you can install from within Vcarve. That one works.

That's because the google link you went to is for v7.5

Since then each version of the software has it's own gadget page. The 2nd one you went to is for v10.

It's best not to google search for installable programs as it's not always that easy to know you're actually on the correct site and might be downloading something nasty instead.
