    I complain from time to time about LHR but I want to praise and thank them for making this firmware update work with designer basic.

    GREAT !!!!

    Question... Do I need to do this to ALL Cards or does it update the Machine so I need to do it to all machines....

    That would be a great answer to add to the instructions. A little engineering speak at the end to explain what we just did....

    What I did was to rename my old control.mwm control old.mwm and then rename the new one control.mwm and put it in the same subdir. That way it will become the new default, which is then easy to uploaded onto all cards.

    One can also just double click on the .mwm file wherever it was downloaded to and Designer will open and upload it to the card.

    I just talked to LHR software on a unrelated issue and asked about this.... (Not Correct) She said it updates the MACHINE so in my case, I would need to update the 4 machines as I place them back on line. Not correct) Only using one at the moment. They all have the CCM.

    Updated EDIT: It was the way I asked the question that lead to confusion... I interpreted it wrong and a updated post below is corrected to "It lives on EACH CARD"... So we will need to update all of our cards. Ultimately it does update the firmware on the CW computer but it as in the update lives on each card... My BAD..


    THANK YOU LHR Software for the fix !!!!

    will this fix the problem with centerline text. When you just do centerline text you get the check cut motor message.

    Yes it should...

    Some newer CarveWright ‘C’ series machines, as well as new cutmotors sold by LHR Technologies, may report a problem with the cutmotor when a project is started. The message, which reads, “Check Cut Motor”, is a result of a new manufacturing technique on the cutmotors which has made them more efficient than their predecessors.
    This updated firmware modifies the cutmotor sensing algorithm to account for the efficiency of the new cutmotors.
    The firmware is backwards compatible with Designer Basic, version 1.187, and can be used with it.
