    Default XY AutoSetup Routine Question

    This must be the day for the XY Routine questions.

    I have a PRTAlpha and I'm trying to modify the set_prox.sbp file for some new prox switches like the PRS uses. I go into the file and make my changes to the Check_Switch_Status section. I save the file then exit the file then go back in to make sure the change are there and they are. I run Tools/Shopbot Setup and select the "Make it easy on me", it hits the limit switch and errors out. I go back and look at the setup_prox.sbp and it defaults back to the old settings. Does anybody know if it is copying the file from another location and copying it over each time. I can't figure out were the file may be getting copied from.

    I modified the XYzero.sbp and the change work great. The XY zero like they should.

    Jerry,
    Yes they were changed. The modifications in the XYzero works with no problems. It's only when I use the Shopbot Setup, it calls the setup_prox.sbp. The values in the setup_prox.sbp are getting set back to the default everytime I run the setup.
