    Copy the post processors from C:\SbParts\PartWorksPosts into C:\Program Files\ShopBot\PartWorks3D\PostP

    If you get an error in PW3D on startup, delete all posts in the PW3D PostP folder except the ones named Shopbot_inch.pp & Shopbot_mm.pp

    You can download them from SB here

    Default Thank You

    I had a similar Postprocessor error message and your suggestion with this patch seems to do the fix. Finding the answer was like the proverbial needle in a haystack. Wish ShopBot and PartWorks could take the guesswork out of what is the most recent edition of their Archive/Archival files.
    Much Appreciated,
    Matt

    When you install SB3, it loads the most current posts in the folder: C:\SbParts\PartWorksPosts\PartWorks3D

    You can copy these to the PostP folder in: C:\Program Files (x86)\ShopBot\PartWorks3D\PostP

    I didn't see a satisfactory answer to this problem, so I thought I'd chime in just in case others have this issue.

    I had this issue when firing up my old SB software on a new computer. There were no post-processor files in the PW3D PostP folder, just a text file saying this was where they should be.

    I found that I first had to upgrade my old PW software to version 3.504 (using the update button under the Help drop-down menu).

    Then, I had to install the appropriate version of SB3 (the SB app) on the same computer, even though I drive the SB from a different computer in my workshop and won't be using the SB3 app on my office computer ever. Once installed, you can find the old versions of the post-processor files in a folder here:

    C:\SbParts\PartWorksPosts\PartWorksPosts_ARCHIVE

    The two files you need are ShopBot_Inch.pp and ShopBot_MM.pp both dated 5/12/2009. Copy these two files and paste them to this folder:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\ShopBot\PartWorks3D\PostP

    Then try running PartWorks3D again, and I think you'll find everything will work YMMV though! Feel free to ask me any follow up questions.
