Question Spoilboard Wizard Help

I used my spoilboard wizard by Mick yesterday and it works but when I open it I only get part of the display so instead of Spoilboard Wizard I get just
Spoilboard Wiz and I don't have full drop down boxes either. When I try to generate G Code it locks up with "not responding". Fortunately I had a good file from my last fly cut and it worked.

I thought it was corrupted somehow so I downloaded another copy from the forum and from YouTube since it was a little more kbs but I get the same issues.

Has anyone else run into this problem? Thanks.

I has issues with the file I first downloaded. Windows said it detected a virus, so I went to Mick's home page and downloaded a copy from there. That worked just fine. Try the one on Mick's site, Keith.

I downloaded from Mick's website but I still only see part of the wizard display. Good suggestion though.

Mick, any ideas or suggestions? Thanks.

Red face No Worries

I finally got around to opening the wizard on another computer and it worked perfectly so it is computer specific. I should have done that first and hindsight is 20/20.

I ran into a virus issue as well and have just ran across your post. Thank you for taking the time to mention going to the website for the download instead. Will be trying that tomorrow.

Default Is this correct????

Could someone look at this for me and let me know if this is correct? I have used Mr. Martin's spoilboard wizard (thank you for all you have contributed Mr. Martin. It has truly proven to be a "light in the dark" for this newbie). I have scoured the forum and have come across some tramming the spindle threads. I am hoping this is visual only and I am not needing to touch my spindle. While you can see the lines in the pic below, they are not discernible to the touch. Advice from any and all please? It is most appreciated!

If you can't feel them, can you measure them? I'm guessing not, but if you have a dial indicator, it would be interesting to know. If you can't measure the ridges, then I'm guessing that tramming the spindle won't help. By the way, that's a nice looking dust boot. Is that the standard on the rotary ATC now? I've been working on something similar for my ATC with tool rack along the back.
