Updatingto X9 from a previous version of Mastercam

Migration Utility: Here’s a recommendation on using it to quickly & safely move your necessary files into X9. One thing to note is the following; if you are going to be running files from a network. NOTE: Folder structure must be maintained now in version X9.

Example update:

This example and recommended method uses a folder created in My Documents named UPDATE.

    1. Install Mastercam X9
    2. Backup Mastercam X8 files
    3. To run the migration wizard go to FILE, MIGRATION WIZARD/Advanced. Browse to shared/x9 files. Find the personal folder and select this as well
    4. Accept the default C:\Users\Public\Documents\shared mcamx9\mill\Posts ….. NOT C:\Users\Public\Documents\shared mcamx9\mill\Posts\My Vertical.
    5. Install X9 to the DEFAULT directories even though you can change the MY & SHARED folder locations in the installation.
    6. Once you have X9 installed,  launch Mastercam. If files are stored on a network directory, go to your config file and in the FILES topic change the location of them to the respective drive they will reside on.


  1. Use the ADVANCED option in the Migration Wizard dialog to point it to the location of the files to update (remember this example uses C:\Users\User\Documents\–== UPDATE ==– ).   Also, note “Include Sub Folders” is selected so it will look through your MY & SHARED folders for the sub folders to ensure proper and complete updating.
  2. Leave all file types selected.
  3. Select the Version of Mastercam you are updating.
  4. The system will display the file paths selected. Please review this before selecting finish to be sure everything is set correctly.
  5. Select finish. The Code Expert may display while your post files are being updated. Be aware that you may have to close the code expert each time. When the update is complete a pop up will display, along with a confirmation log file of all updated processes
