Our engineers have been using Teksoft ProCam II/2006 on Windows XP. I have upgraded them to Windows 7 Pro. Is there a driver for ProCam for Windows 7? Is the company still in business? If not, should I run the program in Windows XP Compatibility Mode? How do I get the Windows XP driver and software installed in that mode, if that's possible?
Teksoft is still in business however they are dumping their ProcamII and replacing it with Camworks... Expect any support to go down the tubes for ProcamII. It's a shame in my book because Camworks requires Solidworks and ProcamII is an all in one source for Cad & Cam...
Bottom line is it allows Teksoft to develope new cam processes on someone else's platform.
Yes they are making it necessary to 'upgrade' to CamWorks at huge expense (here in South Africa certainly) I may look at MasterCam.
I got ProCam to run on Windows 7 64bit, but had to buy a USB dongle because my PC motherboard has no PCI slots to fit a parallel port.
It's working fine now.
We just updated our computers to windows 7 from xp. The program seems to be working, the only major flaw I have found so far is that you cant open a file by navigating to the folder and clicking on it. Instead, you have to open it from within procam.
If you try by clicking on the file it gives you this error:
"CAD2DWIN.EXE - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point GetIsConnected cound not be located
in the dynamic link library accessdb.dll"
I tried messing around with the 'accessdb.dll' file by putting it in differnt system dirctectorys, but couldnt come up with a solution.
I only work with .dxf files on our system because all our customers and clients do. But ive since found out that you can open .Prt files by clicking on them but its different if i try and open a .dxf file by clicking on it (As stated before, this is only since we upgraded to windows 7). Currently I can only open .dxf files from within the program, which becomes very tedious.
