1 About Upgrade
Upgrade by using dongle
1) Stand-alone dongle: After the upgrade, it is working for previous ZW3D 2010, ZW3D 2011 and ZW3D 2012
2) Network dongle: After the upgrade, it works only for the higher version, therefore, in order to assure the smooth upgrade, the 60 days temporary softkey will be provided for your ZW3D 2011
Update: I would like to update some more information here, for the dongle code problem which happened in the February release, now it has been fixed by the following method:
a) Download the new package and install with administrator priviledge, if you installed the previous package, please uninstall them before the new installation
b) Please download the following small package.
c) Plug dongle into USB interface and then run this package, you will get the following window.
d) Input ‘y’ to read, analyze and update the dongle.
e) Go to ZW3D license manager, product ID of dongle will be read successfully, and
the input the activation ID to activate the dongle.
Upgrade by using soft-key
After the upgrade, it works only for the higher version, in another word, if you would like to use ZW3D 2011, please return your upgrade license and use your old activation ID to re-activate your ZW3D 2011.
2 About the interface of ZW3D 2012, the following is the screenshot of ZW3D 2012, in case that you installed the beta program before, please make sure that the ZW3D 2012 folder in the USER directory has been deleted before or after you install the latest ZW3D 2012, otherwise a lot of useful optimized setting might not be implemented successfully, and you might not see the MOLD tab which is one of the key enhancements in ZW3D 2012. The USER Directory is similar to C:\Users\Colin_L\AppData\Roaming\ZW3D 2012 Eng.
3 About the post processor for 2X turning
Funuc and Siemens post processor will be included to the package at the end of March, now it is being tested with kinds of machines
Update: Both of them are included to the new package, what you need is just downloading the new package from the mentioned link in the previous question
4 About the boolean operation of Mold base, once you insert the ejector pin or screen to the mold base, you might find that the boolean operation is not effective with plates, then please go to the USER Directory and delete the setting folder there. And it should be working correctly
More information will be updated...

Have just reinstalled the latest version of 2012 Z3. The install was a breeze, even un installing the older version.
I took the update option, which is really easy and saves a heap of effort providing all the old config stuff is still there.So Congratulations to the Team, the install is now at an acceptable level and I am sure further improvements will make even better.
(I think it the progress bar was vertical and longer it would look better. It took a long time to show any progress, so having somehting happening early on would be comforting.. )
Now just need that Lightworks version see link >>> Z3 Artisan on UTube
Bring it on...

I have had issues with not being able to access Materials in Part Attributes.
The problem is related to having the 'old' USER Directly left over from a previous install.
So this information from above is very important. Save yourself some grief and read carefully...
