  • Hey B&s / Wilcox / Brian G. Et Al:

    This topic comes up quite often on the board, people changing PC's to try to get better performance for their job. I know what needs to be done and what files they need for a Sharpe32 controller, but I can not accuratly answer for other controllers. My point is this: I imagine you get quite a few phone calls to TECH SUPPORT asking these same questions, over and voer and over for those lucky one's with the SMA's. I also KNOW that someone there KNOWS what files/folders/directories/etc. are needed for each controller type. It would save YOU guys time and US GUYS some headaches if you could put together a LIST of all the 'common' controllers Pcdmis will work for and what files/directories/folders/etc. are needed and should be included when putting together a new PC for running the CMM's. I do relaize that this might help some few who do NOT have the SMA's, but it WILL help those who do and also save YOU guys time and money and free up tech support from going over this and over this and over this again and again and again, ad nausium (sp). I also know that this is NOT directly related to Pcdmis, but I figured I would have the best chance of this getting read and acted upon by posting here.

    Let me answer that one Matt
    • This is intellectual property that is being protected that costs money to develop it is not free. Granted this has nothing to do with your post but the first tactic is to turn this into something it is not. Which brings me to the second tactic.
    • This is your fault and your problem.
    • The final tactic is to reiterate that this software is not free and maybe even throw in something else condescending and again not related to the problem but at the same time puts the onus on you. For example: B&S works very hard to address these issues and I assure you that you are being heard but it is not reasonable for you to think that you deserve this software for free. Are you so simple that you can not understand that we are in business to make money? Do you not get it through your thick head that if we gave this stuff away we'd be in the poor house?


    Thought I'd save them the time.

        That is a great impersonation. How very kind of you. If you keep demonstrating this level of skill and mercy, they just might hire you!

            Thank you Stuart, your warning is duly noted, by me at least. I would give you rep for this but. . .

              OKAY, I looked at the SHARPE portion and it is very interesting, but a WHOLE LOT MORE than I was looking for. It was showing (telling) how to create files and where and stuff like that. I didn't really want to know how to create this file or that, I just would like to see a list like this:

              Sharpe32:
              install_directory/downl.oad
              install_directory/comp.dat

              Sharpe32Z:
              install_directory/whatever.fil

              Zeiss-AZT controller:
              install_directory/bitemy.but
              OS_directory/biteme.too

              Something like that, clean, simple, straight forward. I don't think most of us want to know what is in the file or how to make it, just a very simple, clean list of files and locations. Oh, by the way, everything except for the Sharpe32 controller is just made up.

                Very nice.

                BTW this bonfire has been burning for a while, and no I did not strike the first match. Like a jerk I keep bringing logs. It's a one for one deal.
