EasyDovetailMaker V 5.5 error

Post by hmatyas »

I had some trouble installing EasyDaveTailMaker Verion 5.5. When I download it, winzip made it into a zip file.
So what I did was download it on another computer, change the name and then saved it on a zip drive.
I installed it and it looked good. However, when I run it, I get:
attempt to call a nil value
and then an ok button
Do I need to enter my dovetail information first, or should I try reinstalling the gadget?

Thanks in advance for any help. I am using Aspire 11.010

Let me look at it and see what is up with Ver5.5 code.
I work on it Monday.

Thank you, however where do I find version 5.3? You gave me a link for Version 5.5. I tried to
find it on the Vectric site but I could not find it.
Is there a way to unistall and reinstall it?

Thanks again

Harvey

This morning I downloaded version 5.2.
I do not get any errors like I did in Version 5.5
It appears to be working, as it created tool paths.

Thank you.

Harvey

I'm having the same issue with rev. 5.5 on VCarvePro. Where can I find a working version (5.2?)? Thx.
