    After unzipping 1.02 into its own folder, Windows 7 regards the little man icon as an app rather than an .exe, but clicking on him starts up a dos box(?) in background and then launches the f-engrave GUI , then going into settings and changing fonts folder to windows/fonts loads majority of True Type fonts, clicking on a font previews it on the job in the main window.

    I don't know what is causing the "failed to start" error. What version of windows are you running?

    Since you can run the .py file directly (i.e. you have Python installed) you can try moving the .py file to the directory with the ttf2cxf_stream.exe file. Run the .py file from that directory. That may get everything working.
    (Ttf2cxf_stream needs some of the other files in the directory so you can not move that file)

    You bring up a good point. Depending on your Windows settings you may or may no see the .exe extension on the file.

    The DOS box or command window is supposed to come up like that.

    hi
    The install was easy. I can import a picture. v_carve calc. can run, but When I want to save the G-Code, this following error up in the black window:

    "Unicode encode error: ASCII codec cant encode character u '/ xe9 in position 56: ordinal not in range (128)"

    Please somebody help resolving this problem!

    In text mode F-Engrave does not support characters with a value greater than 128. (These extended characters greater than 128 are my list of things to add support for someday.) The error Szasza880210 is reporting is occurring in "Image Mode". I will look into fixing the error that is occurring in "Image Mode".

    Until I get a new version with a fix for this error you may be able to work around this problem by switching to "Text Mode" and deleting all of the text in the "Input Text" box, then return to "Image Mode" and save the g-code.

    EDIT: I looked into this a little more... F-Engrave should support characters up to 255 in the latest version. Make sure you are using the latest version (V1.02) from:
    http://home.comcast.net/~sskroch/Fengrave/fengrave.html

    Feedback on whether the fix works or not will help me with correcting the program.

    HI
    YEs i use a (1.02) version.
    Yeah sorry I did not write it, the problem is in image mode. Thanks for the advice but failed again, the error message is the same. Simpler images, all right, but not the more detailed images. Thank you for help, for now I use Simpler images. And i wait for a fix or a new version of the program.

    Right now I am not sure what is causing the error. I have not been able to replicate the problem. If you are willing you could send a sample image file that exhibits the problem so I could try to replicate the problem. (The best way to send an image is via e-mail to the e-mail address in the F-Engrave help menu.)

    I think I have found the cause of the error. If the input image file name contains a non ASCII character (i.e. A character with a decimal value greater than 128) F-Engrave will throw the reported error:
    "Unicode encode error: ASCII codec cant encode character u '/ xe9 in position 56: ordinal not in range (128)"

    As a work around the input image file can be renamed to something with only ASCII (English alphabet) characters before importing the image into F-Engrave.

    I will include a fix for this problem in the next version of F-Engrave.

    Could I ask a quick question scorch
    I have installed your program on my office machine ( win7) no problems so far
    when i come to install it on my workshop machine( win xp sp3) i can't get it run after installing

    The dialogue goes " the application failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect reinstalling may help""

    Any ideas?

    as an aside if I try and install on a laptop (win vista) it works fine

    But I do need teh program on my workshop machine
