The actual software is installed when you inctall Vcarve, Aspire etc. it turns on based on your license in the portal. It’ll turn on every place you installed the original product

OK Thanks. I just have to pay the $49 and it should show up then right? It is not currently showing up anywhere I installed the original software. I appreciate your time. Just did not want to pay $49 for each install.

Did you pay for each install of the Vectric software? Like if you had a business with different users?

As far as I know you have to enter the license code on each installed version. It won't automatically "upgrade" the other copies once you've done one although that might have changed with recent versions as I was a very early user of the laser module.

Adrian, you were right. Had to go to each computer and just install on each computer. I went to download the Post processor for the module and they have one for the early style like you did, "Endmill tool". Then they had two PP for the module, one regular and there was also one that said NO Z. Would you happen to know what a no Z would be. I got the items to show up in the toolpath (right side) area however they are not showing up in the tool database so if someone reading this knows what the No Z and why my lasers is not showing up in the tool database I would appreciate any info.. I did install them. I will keep trying. Thanks for the input.
