Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
OK, I have seen, and serviced, many many Sign Robots, as they are called. over the years, they all work, basically, in similar ways, and they are VERY Driver and Operating system dependent. UNLESS specifically written for WIN 7, then you should NOT use it on that Operating system, anyway there is NO benefit in the doing so anyway. In fact there is indeed a downside to using Win 7, and that is the USB, or Serial ports, are "Handled" in a completely different way from say XP, or even Vista. This software used for the Driver, will work best on XP, and that is what I recommend you do, Format the HDD, and Install a copy of XP PRO, service pack 2 NOT 3. Do NOT upgrade to three, while using this software and driver and cutter. IF you follow my advice you will have many years of happy cutting and plotting, failure to do so, will at the least give you constant headaches, to, an unworkable setup. You could also have a Dual Boot setup if you didn't want to completely remove Win 7, you can install XP SP2, onto the existing HDD, and then you boot, from a menu. Also, perhaps a "Virtual Machine" running XP, would work? It also may be possible, to install EVERYTHING as Administrator, and selecting "Comparability Mode for XP SP2" Remember too, that if a 64 bit Operating System, you will need to disable "digital signature checking" by pressing F8, at EVERY boot time, and selecting it from the menu, on Win 7.
