Here's a funny situation :-

My son is Head of the Engineering Dept. in a school in Sheffield. They have software on all computers that encrypts/decrypts data communications, including USB sticks. This is a requirement of their Data Protection policy.

They have just installed a Laserscript CNC machine (presumably because they already have that brand of Laser Cutter ??).

None of the kit works as it is unable to decrypt the Gcode on USB sticks generated by the departmental computers used by students.

So, until they acquire a stand-alone PC or laptop capable of reading an encrypted USB stick and spit out plain Gcode that the Laserscript machine can work on, they have at least two machines standing idle.

Has anybody encountered a similar situation and sorted it?

My son is frustrated at this situation which he inherited.
