    Does Lasercut 5.3 works in Windows 10 environment?

    Hello world,

    I'm new to this community and this is my first post. I've tried searching for the answers to my question, but to no avail so if you could please help it would be much appreciated!

    I'm running LaserCut5.3 on a 60W Workline machine with a MPC6525 motion-card in windows 7 home premium environment with a 64 bit processor PC.

    From a while my pc ask me to install windows 10. Is Lasercut 5.3 compatible with this OS? If not what is the compatible release and what have I to do in order to obtain the software?

    Thanks a lot.
    Massimo

    You don't have to upgrade to Windows 10, actually my advice is to not upgrade, just keep running Windows 7 in the foreseeable future.

    LaserCut5.3 shall be working on Windows 10 since Windows API isn't changing, however, you can never be sure before actually running it, and there is no reason to run it just because Microsoft prompts you to upgrade.

    I am currently running it on a mac in a windows 10 emulator, it is a bit slow is the only problem so I suppose a native Windows 10 will be OK

    Hello,
    this is a very nice news for me, but I would like to hear from those who use native Windows 10 before upgrading.

    Thanks a lot.

    This is the answer I wanted to hear! I expected that everything was working well, but I wanted the opinion of those who have already migrated.

    Thanks for your answer.
    Have a nice day.

    Anybody know how to uninstall Lasercut 5.3?
    I don't see an uninstall.exe nor is it in Windows Uninstall.
    Any insight that frees up my disk space would be appreciated.

    I used to use it but only with Win7 as I couldnt get full functionality with 10.

    Can I use other laser software on these Chinese laser machines?

    I'm running it on win 10 nicely.. I did this;

    Please complete the following steps.

    1. Install the laser software as standard (for a step-by-step guide please see the Windows 7 software installation instructions).
    2. Enter the start menu and click on power icon in the lower left of the screen. While the computer is restarting press the shift key and right click the mouse.
    3. When it asks you to choose an option, select the Troubleshoot option.
    4. Select Advanced options.
    5. Select Startup Settings.
    6. Click Restart.
    7. After restarting your computer the second time, choose Disable driver signature enforcement from the list below by typing F7 on the keyboard.
    8. You will now be able to install drivers normally, however when Windows displays the corresponding warning message, click Install this driver software anyway.

    TROUBLESHOOTING

    If you continue to get a communication error message, complete the following steps with both the USB dongle and the laser machine connected to your computer:

    1. Open the Device Manager (press the Windows key + X or right-click on Start to open the Power User Menu. Select Device Manager in the menu).
    2. Look for the EZ USB FX device (this should be found under Universal Serial Bus controllers). Right click on this device and select update driver software.
    3. When asked, opt to manually search for the device and point it to the Universal Serial Bus device.
    4. Click OK/Yes/Accept for all message windows that open.

    The software should now run correctly.

    By now, everybody is running Windows 10 I suppose. It not a problem to adjust any program and application to this OS variant. And I see a nice information about all potential troubleshooting processes added by one of the users. I am successfully applying these tips from my location https://worldcams.tv/netherlands/amsterdam/dam-square. You will also manage it.
