Karl, Camsoft store all the configuration for your system in a .CBK
file in the C:\galiloi directory, if the cards are PCI type they will
be PnP , if they are ISA they will be manually addressed and the
configuration will be in the CBK file. Do you have the Setup.exe file
in the Camsoft directory? , if so if you run this you will see a
development menu and a lot of the configuration and you can also edit
the operator interface if you need to!.
If you have the original Camsoft CD and intend reloading the software
you should make a back up of the CBK files while you can, as one of
them will pertain to your machine and might be called Mazak.cbk for
e.g. and this is the only file that you cannot get from Camsoft as it
was created by whoever retrofitted your machine. ( unless it was
If you do re-install the software, you would then have to run
setup.exe and then do a RESTORE from the menu that comes up and point
to the relevent cbk file to restore from.
How come you have two servo cards? How many axis are there?
First I would recommend installing the old hard drive in the new
computer if it is still OK and make that the C: drive again.
I would also suggest making a verbatim copy of your HD including
Windows registry, just in case you get a HD crash down the road.
Also try and get an upgrade to Win98se if you do not already have it.
hope this helps.
