Just wanted anyone who is interested to know that David Colin has updated his tool management software for use with Mastercam X6. It will now allow you to manage holders for V8 Thru X6. He has also recently added the ability to change background and foreground colors and font styles. This will probably only apply to people who are still using the older style surface toolpaths. Added link below.

Hmm, couldn't install it. Error window pops up and states: "Cannot download the application. The application is missing required files. Contact application vendor for assistance."

According to "ClickOnce Deployment" troubleshooting errors, the problem is described as follows:
"One or more of the files listed in the application manifest cannot be found on the server. Verify that you have uploaded all the deployment's dependent files, and try again."

Make sure you have the latest .NET installed with all updates and Windows installer 3.1.
Then you should be able to download the setup file by clicking on installer on the linked webpage.


try this link here for complete installation files.

After installing it close it and reopen it and it will auto upate to the latest version. V1.0.0.17

No there is no documentation. It is pretty straightforward You just need to set up your directories. One points to the tool folder where your Holder.MCX file is. The other points to the directory where you have your custom toolholder profiles drawn. The program basically just overwrites Holder.MCX with the custom profile you select. When you start the software it will show you a list of your custom profiles and you just double click the selected profile and it automatically overwrites Holder.MCX. Then when you go to backplot or verify Mastercam will use the selected profile.

Finally installed this, where is the Holder.MCX, I searched the entire MCAMX6 folder and nothing pops up !
