I can produce the alpha stair .sda design but when I transfer to Alphcam the parts, it can run, but no nc output is produced to transfer to CNC machine. The .cnc file is 0. I have used the program for 25 years and now that new operating systems (Windows 8 & 10) are standard on new computers and I need advice.

I believe this issue is related to the file permissions in Windows 8 and Windows 10. If you're trying to create a file while you are on Windows 8/10 and the software was launched without Administrator access, then the CNC file will always be 0 just because the software doesn't have writing permissions.

To overcome this issue, run the software as Administrator and it will export the correct CNC file.
