How to remove unwanted Post Processor option files from the Select Option File form

A high number of Post Processors causes problems with the slow opening of the NC Program properties and clutter the interface.



Option 1

  1. Move the posts you need to a new folder structure, such as; C:\dcam\config
  2. In PowerMill, select File > Options > Customise Paths
  3. Select the drop-down, choose Options Files
  4. Select the file locations you have in the list, and delete them using the X button.
  5. Select the folder + button to browse, and select the new folder containing your post processors.
  6. Shut PowerMill down, and restart.

There are two ways to reset the list of all the recently used Projects, Models, and Option files:

Option 2

  1. File tab > Options > Application Options.
  2. Expand Import, then choose Model.
  3. Change the number to 1 or 2 in the Recently used items, then close PowerMill. This will delete all recently used items except the last 1 or 2 (depending on what you choose).
  4. Shut PowerMill down, and restart.

Option 3

  1. Shut down all open windows of PowerMill.
  2. Type REGEDIT into the Windows search and run the command.
  3. Inside the registry editor, go to the following location: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\PowerMill\Recent File List 8.0.
  4. This area shows all the recently used Projects, Models, and Option files. Select and delete any unused/unwanted post-processor files.
  5. Shut PowerMill down, and restart.

Caution: The PC registry contains essential files that can significantly affect a PC's performance if deleted. Be careful using this method only to delete the post processor option files from the list.
