of FFM. This update significantly reduces, and sometimes entirely eliminates,
dropped surfaces during IGES Import.
To use the patch, download the patch file and run it. When prompted for
a path, select ANY file in your SmartCAM run directory; generally C:\SM9.
You must select a file in your \SM9 directory for the patch to work. This
patch only works on Windows 3.x, Windows 95, Windows NT 3.51 and NT
4.0 operating systems.
Update for v9.x SmartCAM Hardware Lock Option
(hloupdt.exe - 1,400,714 bytes)
This update includes a fix for customers experiencing problems with the
new ECP and EPP high-speed parallel ports (where the System Server
Code did not change after installing the HLO).
To install the update, simply download the patch. Once the patch is
downloaded, use the File Manager or Explorer to run the HLOUPDT.EXE
file. This will start the
installation process. Follow the on-screen prompts.

Check the file to determine the problem.
(elmid32.dll - 4,000 bytes) Copy to your \windows\system directory.
All SmartCAM applications:
Creating lines needs manual updating of Start and End Z (can not create a line
using length and angle) Macro execution is slow compared to v10 (There is
performance increase for macro execution with the v11.01 patches) Merging
files with named elements or workplanes crashed when duplicate names found.
Can not enter coordinates manually for splines and polylines.
Advanced Production Machining and Free Form Machining:
ACIS import misreporting quantity of surfaces in a SAT file.
Production Milling, Advanced Production Machining and Free Form Machining:
Milling products: mc_7.sh3 not a valid CTG file
Advanced Turning and Production Turning:
Can not use keyboard to create a line with a turning tool.

-=-=- Known issues with v11.01 -=-=-
When merging files with named elements or workplanes, if a duplicate
name is found, the first instance keeps the name, all others do not. Refer
to Technote.176 for an explanation of how to have SmartCAM automatically
rename elements and workplanes that have names matching existing geometry.
When merging files that cause the application to exceed 1,024 work planes the
following nonstandard error message appears: "WKPLN03"
Installing the Patch:
1.Save the appropriate patch file(s) for your SmartCAM Application(s) to your
local PC. Go to the Windows "Start" button and select
"Run". Use "Browse" to find and Open the v11.01 patch file.
2.Select "OK" to confirm that you want to update your SmartCAM application.
This will open a "File Select" dialog box titled "Enter
SmartCAM Directory". Change the "Look In" field to the directory where
SmartCAM is installed (default is :\sm9\ ).
3.Select and Open any file that exists in the SmartCAM directory to initiate
the v11.01 patch update dialog box. Select "Yes" to install
the v11.01 patch.
4.Open your SmartCAM application. Go to Help -- About and confirm that
