Re: Eagle 8.6.3. on Windows 10 permission denied #eagle #gcode

Hi Jos,
this has nothing to do with Windows 10, the viewer pops up when generating a G-code file and is looking at the mentioned file. IF your run generates another G-code file, it tries to pop up a new instance of the viewer to display THAT G-code, since the file is already being used by another instance the OS won't let the new viewer open it.

The solution is to manually kill the first viewer (click the X in the upper right) before starting the generation of the second G-code file.

This whole scenario happens when you have something else enabled other than an "etch", such as milling, or text, or drilling, each of these gets its own G-code file.

I think this will fix your problem.
