Opening job with old tools crashes my system

Post by motoguy » Sat Jun 15, 2019 1:00 am

I've recently "standardized" my toolsets (and rules) across both the Linux (tableside cutting) machine and my windows (office design) machine. I copied the tools from the Linux box to the Windows box, as the tableside tools are the "mo betterer" tools.

However, now if I open old jobs/part files on the Windows machine, I get errors that "xxx toolset/rule not found". No worries, I go into the part, and change the toolset to the now-active toolset.

However, the warning doesn't go away. Sheetcam starts running slower and slower, until it eventually locks my whole system up. Not every time, mind you. I've cut several jobs since this change was made, and of course I have no issues trying to run new jobs. Basically, I have issues 1) bringing in .part files with rule (or names) different than I have now, and 2) loading old jobs on remnant sheets, to finish them off.

Any ideas on how to get around this? I thought changing the toolsets/rules in the old .parts/job files to the new tools/rules would do it, but that does not appear to be the case.
