    Default Just purchased a CNC machine

    Having just purchased an older Larken 24/24 machine using Lcam, I was hoping someone could tell me if I can download a new version of Lcam onto an older XP laptop? The older tower that came with is large and uses a CRT screen. I could reduce its footprint by using a laptop.

    Thanks for any response.

    Laptops aren't usually recommended for running CNC machines. Their power-management software tends to turn them off just when you don't want them to. But you should be able to replace the CRT screen with a flat panel monitor, if that helps.
