New Machine #migration

keith3125
 

Trying to setup PCBGCODE on a new machine (Windows 10). Got far enough to settings page but can't size the window to see/reach the 'accept' button.
Closed it down and just tried 'run' on a board got message: Windows cannot find 'javaw.exe' Make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again. Closed that and get : Error calling ShellExecuteEx0

Any ideas?

Usually when the window is too large, it means the image displayed at the top,of the window couldn’t be found. You can check your install against the manual, search the forum here for people that have had this issue, or edit the pcbgcode-setup.ulp file and remove the references to the image. 

Hope this helps,
John

If you only need to get to the buttons once, how about temporarily changing the screen resolution for the few seconds you need to click the button.

* shrink the application window to the menu bar  [click on the minus symbol at top right]
* right click on desktop
* left click on Display Settings
* left click in Resolution box
***   write down current resolution
* scroll to the left click on 1024 x 768
* left click on Keep changes
* bring the window up to full size (click on it in the menu bar)
* make your choices

Then repeat all above to get your normal resolution restored


I haven't tried this because I don't need it, but it should work fine.  If not try a 'custom' resolution that is taller.
Let me (and everyone else) know how it goes.

bye.

Must I 'shrink' the app window? Because in the 'setup screen, there's no '-'. Just an 'X' and a '?'
Anyway around that?

I don't know if you're using Windows 10 but the display settings are a little crazy.
I did find a way to see the 'accept' button...portrait to landscape. But navigating the mouse is insane even just to click the button.

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

Jos Raven
 

I cannot solve this problem on my Windows 10 installed EAGLE 8.6.3.

Can't open C:\EAGLE 8.6.3\ulp\viewer\application.windows\data\optimize_me.txt
Permission denied

I have absolutely no idea how to set the permission for Win 10.

Help please!

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

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.

Yes, John,
you are right !!
Following your  instruction it works .
On my Win 10 PC I user PCB-GCODE ver. 3.6.2.4

However , on my other PC I have EAGLE 7.2.0 and PCB_GCODE ver. 3.6.0.2 
The problem does not occur with this set-up.
I have, in my configuration, 6 viewer windows open with no problem.
However the windows are reduced to icons on the taskbar.

Thank you for your help,
Regards,
Jos
