CTR Lasers - Article: Windows 7 Software Installation

Are you upgrading your PC from Windows XP to Windows 7?

If so, there are a few things you need to keep in mind to ensure the change in the PC driving your CTR laser machine goes as smoothly as possible.

For the installation, you will need:

  1. Your original software installation disk.
  2. The syscfg.ini (system configuration) file that is on the PC currently driving your laser machine.
  3. The correct driver, either for Windows 7 32 bit, or Windows 7 64 bit operating systems.

If you don't have your existing software installation disk, you may be able to find a copy of the software available for download from our website here.

PLEASE NOTE: to access this area you will need to have registered for a free account here, and logged in here.
To download the drivers:

Please follow the above steps to access the software downloads.
There are two drivers listed, for either the 32 bit, or 64 bit operating system. Please only download and run the relevant driver for your operating system.

Your system configuration file

When your laser machine was installed, you will have been advised to keep a copy of this file backed up somewhere safe.

If you can still access the PC system current driving the laser, you can also find this file on the C drive, in the root of the laser software folder (Easycut or Lasercut). The file name is "syscfg.ini"

HINT: if you didn't have a backup of this file before, now is the perfect time to take one, in case the file needs to be restored at any stage in the future - it certainly saves the cost of a service callout!

 

Once you have all of the above ready, you'll need to follow the instructions to install the software correctly.
This can be found in PDF format here. Look for the files titled "Laser Software Installation: Windows 7" and your operating system i.e. 32 or 64 bit.
Again, you will need to have registered and logged in to access this area of our website.

And you're done!
If you have any questions regarding the above steps, or get stuck at any stage, please contact CTR for individual advice and support.
