K40 Laser Cutter: How to Cut and Engrave in One Job
Hey Scott594. I had the same error. Downloaded a trial version of Corel and it didn't work either. Then I found a RAR file on the CD that came with the Laser. It has the Corel Draw 12 install files. So I unZIPed it onto the C drive, and ran the Setup.exe to install the RAR Corel included, and then reinstall Corel Laser. Then the error disappeared. Hope that helps.
There's a Seller on Ebay known as "Globalfreeshipping" They're well known (and Trusted) on the Google K40 forum. If you're interested, that's THE place for real user info/support. Just do a search for 'Google K40 community' and you should find it. 1200 or so K40 owners doing unimagineable things with the little K40.They're helpful folks and it's a good place to learn what you're getting into before you buy.Scott - Scott594
If you haven't already solved this problem, maybe it will help someone else, if you don't have Winrar loaded on your computer you can not load the Corel Draw v12 file. - micahJ8
When the first task started, it engraved as it should. The cutting task, however, only gave two short "twitches" of the laser head and said it was done. Less than a second, and the laser itself never activated.. Any ideas where I went wrong?
Thanks so much! apart from it taking me 20mins to figure out why the tool bar keeps disappearing this tutorial was exactly what I needed :)
Where did you get it this for under $400?
