Installing 0.9.8P on Win 7
« on: March 10, 2016, 17:22:29 pm »
Have an issue with this install. My last XP died so I moving CamBam to a new shop Win 7 computer. I had the foresight to put the CamBam config along with all the CB and *.nc  files on a central server (Dropbox). The install was successful, I change the tools->options->system path to the Dropbox directory. Then changed other parameters like Display Mode, Grid Info, etc. Saved and reloaded. But the changes did not happen. The options parameters show exactly what I entered. But the screen doesn't reflect the Grid Color, Background Color, Grid Info min-max or other entered parameters. Also noticed that many of the existing CB files will not load either. It shows a document read error. I searched this forum but couldn't find a suitable/workable solution. Have uninstalled and reinstalled with no change. Any thoughts?

I use Windows 7 64 bit and these are the settings;

This is the path where CamBam.exe is located, plus other files

C:\Program Files (x86)\CamBam plus 0.9.8
plugins
help
CamBam.exe

This is the path I go to when selecting, Tools->Browse system folder, from the menu

C:\ProgramData\CamBam plus 0.9.8
machinedefs
materials
post
samples
scripts
styles
templates
tools

This is what the line says in Tool->Options for 'System Path'

{$common}\CamBam plus 0.9.8\

And in the Tools menu I always tick 'Save settings on exit'

Mine is the same except the Tools -> Browse system folder points to C:\Users\Administrator\Dropbox\CamBam plus 0.9.8. My serious design computer is in the house. I use the shop version to make on the corrections. With Dropbox, that allows me to have a single CB master copy. The styles and tools definition are identical on both computers.

What about the existing cb files not loading ?

If the files that won't load are old ones, these threads may help;

C:\Users\Administrator\Dropbox\CamBam plus 0.9.8.
are you sure that the Admin account is activated? In the standard installation the admin account is disabled. By removing the hook is activated the account. DropBox requires an activated admin
