    Saving Mach3 Settings as backup?

    I'm using Mach 3 and actually just registered it today since it works so well for me. Can someone tell me where all of the settings are saved at meaning are they in files in the program folder or saved in the registry somewhere? I want to back them up to CD incase my machine fails or something. It took me a while to get it just right and hate to go through all of that again.

    I also noticed they are up to version 1.9 something for Mach 3. I'm still using 1.83.xx but as long as its working for me, I'm not changing it.

    Thanks,

    Warren

    If you're using the Mach3Mill profile, then backup Mach3mill.xml Whatever profile you use, the .xml file has the same name. You probably would want to backup your license file too.

    1.84.01 is the latest "lockdown". The later versions are under development, and may or may not be better for you. There's a list of what's been added/ changed in these versions on the Mach3 Downloads page.
