How to install UGS

Thought I was fairly ok with IT issues but stuck here. Got the emblaser, assembled it, downloaded driver, downloaded UGS zipfile containing 142 folders and 400+files and according to the manual all I need to do is 'run the .jar file'. There is no .jar file in the main folder, there are many all over the place. There is a sim.exe in the main folder but that only shows errors in a DOS box. Saw one user of this forum tried to run the .bat file in the 'release-files' folder but like for him that doesn't work at all.
I can randomly try and work my way through all the different folders and files but hopefully someone can help me out here? (Using Windows 8).

    Try downloading the latest version of Universal G Code Sender from this link ....

    The folder I downloaded from there only contains 4 files, one of them being the .jar file that starts the little program.

    I work on a mac computer but I can't see that that would make any difference.
  • Jereon,

    I had problems with the Wndows version V1.08 UGS it would not run on my PC. I downloaded V1.06 and it runs fine.


  • Jeroen,

    It sounds like you downloaded the source code for UGS rather than the compiled version.

    Either try the link Jared suggested OR we have a direct download link on our website here:
  • Thanks All.
    The link to UGS in the manual points to a GitHub page with all the files, the one from Darkly indeed only had the 4 files and that works, can home and move the laser. Next step; get it to 'print' something ;)

    Thaks again
  • Good you got that resolved. The Github page is a bit difficult to figure out. You can download both the source files and compiled versions from there.
