    Default Lab Volt 5600 post processor

    I have a Lab Volt 5600 which is running version 3 firmware the mill is I believe from the 2003-2004 time period. The mill runs fine in manual mode so I believe I have a working controller but I do not have the software however there are post processor available does anyone know what I would need to get it working with some other cam software this is my first mill. from the manual its not clear if I would need a dongle or not it might need one to run with the lab volt software would it need one to work with a post processor as well?

    i was able to get level 3 level4 and level 5 software

    and on my machine level 4 software works and i ran a test program from preloaded sample gcode files and it ran great..it took me 1 yr to get to this point..it was very difficult getting the 3 old machines i have in working order since labvolt went out of business and festo took oever and they arent familiar with the older machines
