    Default Patch for VCarvePro ShopBot Edition v8

    If you have installed VCarvePro ShopBot Edition V8, you can get the patch to take V8 to V8.014

    Do ‘Help – Check For Updates’ on a computer connected to the internet they should be told there is a new version available and it will be downloaded and installed.

    If using a computer not attached to the internet, download the patch from …

    http://www.vectric.eu/patches/VCarve...h_to_v8014.exe

    You can use a USB stick to transfer to the computer where V8 is installed. Copy this into the ‘Program Files\VCarve Pro – ShopBot Edition’ folder and run it.

    Nancy,
    Any chance on another downloadable update for VCP8?
    V8.014 has a serious glitch when VCarving in a pocket and my control computer has never touched the internet and don't want to as there's no antivirus at all.
    They're up to V8.024 now, but ANYTHING more recent than 8.014 solves that particular glitch.
    Thanks for anything you could do for us!

    Scott,

    Isn't V8.024 more current than V8.014?? I'm confused....

    Joe,
    Nancy had posted a downloadable V8.014 for unconnected internet computers for Shopbot edition.
    Regular download of new editions from Vetric and put on thumbdrive don't take as it doesn't recognize Shopbot edition.
    Both connected computers are already patched to v8.024, but control computer is very stripped down and no protection or internet.
    Means I have to do all the files in the house completely and remember NOT to recalculate any toolpaths in the pocket or it puts a groove through them
    Better?

    Scott,

    I beg to differ, I have Vcarve Pro 8 shopbot edition and I update it from vectric, just did the update to .024. If I am remembering correctly, vectric made a change for updates to be able to do it from their site through the app. I have the download if you want to try it, I can upload it to me website and you could download it and try?

    Thanks guys.
    Located the e-mail from Dianne with my VCP8 upgrade license and info for the library downloads, but just doesn't let me get into or set up portal account
    Frustrating after a full day, so shoot at it again tomorrow while I'm fresh.

    Joe could you e-mail it to my account in contact info? I'll try anything at the moment.
    Thanks

    Thanks to the Original Poster!

    I hadn't realized that they had released a patch.
