Hi, I started a separate topic for this because the issue is somewhat different from my previous topic on this subject.
I looked through the CAM forum and found a link: http://downloads.imsidesign.com/Plug-ins/18/CAM-PlugIn-for-TurboCAD-18.exe
to download the CAM plug-in for version 3.5.
I tried this but it would not accept the Serial number that I have for the version of the plug-in that I purchased. It seems that IMSI tie their plug-ins to specific versions of the program. So that the plug-in I have will only work with version 11.1 and then not on a Vista or Win 8 machine.
If this is so then I find the treatment of legacy license holders by IMSI to be rather shabby, I don't believe, from looking through the forum that there is any significant improvement in the program in going from 3.0 to 3.5 so I ought to be able to use my licence on upgraded versions of the supporting main program, this would not be true for the likes of Adobe etc, where the earlier plug-ins will work for later versions of photoshop or illustrator etc.
I have found the same problem with the beam equation program, but have managed to sort this by direct import of the dll's etc.
How can I use TurboCadCam version 3.5 with my current license obtained when I purchased the version for TC11?
I don't recall any upgrade option for TCCADCAM to 3.5. Normally I would only expect to pay for a major upgrade, say to version 4.0, not as in this case what seems to be a minor amendment, or indeed to pay in order to be able to run on later versions of the main program (changing from 32-bit to 64-bit is maybe an exception!).
MS Win8 Pro, i7-3770K processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX, 500GB SSD, 2T HD, 16GB RAM (32GB Virtual). Gigabyte Mobo. TC since 3.5" floppy days. Now ver21 Platinum although still use Ver 11 for beam tool (not compatible with Ver18, or version 21). Cannot get TurboCadCam ver 3.0 to work on Win 8 machine
