    Mastercam X Editor/MP.dll freezing on startup

    When I generate gcode using the G1 button in the operations manager, it automatically opens the Mastercam X Editor. The window opens and the cursor spins for a while, but then it says (Not Responding) in the title bar. The same thing happens if I try to run MP.dll manually. I know this is a very generic question, but is this something anyone has seen before? I can give more specifics if necessary, but I was hoping someone had encountered this before and they knew how to fix it.

    A few quick things:
    Mastercam X5
    all files stored on a local drive
    Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

    Try changing the default editor to Cimco.
    ObrienDave. MasterCam since V6. Gcode since 1983.

    It nearly seams that a data path is incorrect,
    or it's trying to post to a folder that is un-available
    ie. you may have changed the name
