HSM for windows


Liked the online program so thought I would try out the Windows version.

I used the default path as suggested and I definitely have net 4.0 installed.

But the program comes up with the following errors when I try to use it

See attached screen shots

Any suggestions as to what the problem is.

Seems i screwed up default settings file last time i made an update.
It only affects new installs.

I will publish an uodate tonight to fix it.

But you can fix it yoirself by going to HSMAdvisor Settings page.
Look for myCUT DB settings.

On that panel there is a button with green "v" picture on it.

Click that button to reset the path to your tool database to default.

Thanks for letting me know.

I have fixed the problem.
you can either re-install from the website (make sure you delete the HSMAdvisor install folder) or fix it the way i suggested in the post above

Thanks for that, is there a tutorial available to help me input feeds and speeds or should the program be taking information from a data base.

I am trying to work out feeds and speeds for a 6mm bull nose carbide cutter, I have added all the tool data but nothing is showing up in the feeds and speeds. There is an error below saying

Resulting RPM is below minimum set in your machine limits, RPM was adjusted to match Min RPM
Use smaller cutter.

I have put the same data into the online version and it gives me a suggested feed and speed.

I have no doubt it is something I am doing wrong, just not sure what.
