I'm one of the guys caught with the first x6 version. So, I uninstalled it, notice little pieces hanging around in the documents folder and deleted those as well. I now have the latest and greatest disk and x6 is installed and it only flashes on the monitor for about a half second, never to be seen again. I've noticed that "my mcamx6" does not exist in my documents folder.

I appreciate your help John.

I have a question. I downloaded the X6 x64 latest version but it did not install into the \Program Files(x86) subdirectory (like X5 did) and it doesn't seem to be hyperthreading or multitasking (like X5 did). Is there something somewhere I need to turn on? When I do a regen of a dynamic area op, I do not get the little symbol showing it doing its thing in the background.

Frustrated....

X6 on a x64 computer will install into the "Program Files" structure

On a 64 bit computer, you have
Program Files(x86) which is 32 bit application
Program Files which is x64 bit applications, that is where X6 will be located

X5 was a 32 bit app and installed in Program Files(x86)

If you're using the 2D highspeed tool paths they do not multi-thread

This .pdf will help you get your X6 up and running.

This handles most straight forward installations. If you're doing something different, there may be some other things you will want or need to do.

There's been some issue of what appears to be people updating their X5 config IN the X5 folder. This "may" help


You sir are a gentleman and a scholar.

flawless transition. thank you for the guide!

I am having a problem setting up the default machines in the config. having this problem on both machines that I am setting up with Mcam6. So I figure it is me doing something wrong. I have followed J Paris' .pdf tip sheet, I think. I have attached screenshot.

having same problem since our IT guy installed X6MU2 on our computers the other day.. I am also noticing about a 20 sec delay once MC opens up before it will alow you to do anything. it says not responding until it gets unstuck..think im going to have the IT guy uninstall and reinstall X6 MU2 and see what happens.
