add a post processor to PhotoVCarve

photovcarve PP error.jpg
Anyone know how to add a post processor to PhotoVCarve? I've been using a post processor file in VCarvePro but I didn't see it listed under
the post processor choices in PhotoVCarve so I copied it to the Program Files/PhotoVCarve/PostP directory and get the error shown when opening PhotoVCarve.

Tom...
IF there is not a proper postP for your machine in PVC, you can remove the non supported lines from a working post by editing out the ones that return the error, save, then reopen PVC. Slow, but it works.

In your example, the complete arc section will need to be removed. PVC does not support Gcode arcs.
