unable to open output file C

:cry: unable to open output file C\documents and settings\

Could you explain a bit further. What are you trying to do?

I have installed a new hard drive and reloaded
1 V carve
2 sheetcam
3mach 3

I can get my drawings to post processing and when I hit the button, this is what comes to my screen

unable to open output file C\ documents and settings
judd nelson\ desk top\modified DXF vector images\knife1a_16tap

Post Processing completed
Process completed with 1 errors &0 warnings

and when I go to Mach 3 the file is not there.

There are a couple of possibilities here. First of all, is the tap file already open in Mach? If so, close the file before running the post processor. This is the most common reason for this error.

Another possibility is that you are trying to save to a nonexistent or protected folder. Try this: Run the post processor. When the dialog appears asking you where you want to save the file, click on the desktop link to make sure you are using the correct desktop folder. Now save the file.

Let me know if you still have problems
