    How do I close out a file I entered in to wincnc without closing the program. Example:Say I opened the wrong tap file and want to change it to another tap.

    Depending on the version here are some steps:

    [CTRL] + C will clear the message box (and maybe the command line)

    [ESCAPE] may do the same

    When all else fails, use the mouse and sweep select the file name in the command line and press delete

      Gary,

      How do I determine what version of WinCNC I have? Is it a serial number on the daughter card? Does WinCNC update the versions very often?

        After you start Wincnc across the top you will see "Help" then click on "About" here you can see your Wincnc version.

        If it works don't update .... I would only update if you change your operating system XP, windows 7 etc.....

          Brian....
          From the WinCNC control panel onscreen:

          Wait for it...... Its scary.....

          Press the [Help] button, and then "About"

          The WinCNC version will be listed in the first few lines.


          They come out with new versions all the time. Most are for features that the majority of us wont use. Some require software upgrades ($) others could require computer and/or hardware upgrades (more $)

          Is there something that doesn't appear to work on your machine? Is there a feature you have heard about that you need? In most cases you will find little or no difference with the upgrade.

          EDIT: What Mick said!
