Problem with Fusion360 and Mach3

Hi Guys, I'm having a problem with Fusion 360 and Mach3.

In practice it's been a while since I created the machine file for my cnc.. yesterday while I was creating a new file to make a writing engraved on aluminum I went to upload it to mach3 and in practice it no longer uploads the file..

I select it from the folder but then nothing happens..

I load the same file on Mach4 and it works there and I see the paths. Has this happened to anyone by any chance??

The only thing I can say is that Fusio made me update the machine in the library saying that the one I had was old, so I inserted a generic 3-axis CNC then I gave him the Post of MAch3mill.cps, I also made others try creating other machines if that's the problem.. but nothing.. Do you have any advice?? Thank you 1000!

Have you tried creating g-code with no machine selected? You should be able to just create a Setup, some toolpaths and post code with the Mach3 (or Mach4) post processor.
