Invalid post processor configuration

So I save my post processors locally to a shared network hard drive so all the computers have the latest post processor. I have been wanting to use the 'Create NC program' instead of posting directly from the setup as my programs are becoming more complex/ I want to do certain operations/ etc. I have been receiving an error whenever I try and post from Create NC program. It doesnt look like it is using the correct path. for whatever reason it is trying to look for the post in the AppData, even though I am using the browse function to find the post processor.

on another note, is there a way to set defaults for create NC program? It is tedious having to  select the output and the post processor location every time.

When you use the machine configuration all the default setting will be saved and could you please share the .cps file you used to post and model file you are trying to use


save the file and reattach the file to this thread.

I have the same issue, always post processed, never anything wrong with it. Used a previous file, altered it just a little bit and now I get this error.

Altered what a "little bit" and what error are you getting?

Like the title of this post "Invalid post processor configuration". I just altered the size of the to be milled part. So in stead of a square of 250x500 it is now a 250x150 square. So I have no idea how this would change anything in post processing.

Would you be able to share your Fusion file here or privately?
File > Export > Save to local folder, return to thread and attach the .f3d file in your reply. To share the file privately, it's the same process, but email it to me: seth DOT madore AT autodesk DOT com
