Follow the attached procedure to configure plotter queues on a network so AccuMark users can plot to multiple plotters.
Correct. AccuMark zip files are created on one AccuMark and imported on another AccuMark. On the source AccuMark it should be using Export to Zip - not a third party zip program. AccuMark Import Zip does not launch other zip programs unless you double clicked on the zip file in a Windows folder. That would happen due to Windows program file associations. You should be able to have third party zip programs and AccuMark running on same system. We do it all the time. But sometimes registry changes may impact programs--- and at a school there is a potential for this, especially with the additional restrictions put on client systems like "deep freeze".
In V10.4 it is also possible to export AccuMark zip files from PDS and entire storage areas from AM-Explorer in a single “right click” over a storage area name. Also, Send to Mail Recipient allows for more meaningful zip file names rather than a system generated name. Remember, with multiple storage area versions, compatibility matters. All data is upward compatible but only models and pieces from V9 storage areas can be exported to V8 storage areas. That means V7 storage areas are read-only and the data cannot be saved or processed from them.
Get familiar with the latest updates for V10 using the What's New documents as well. They can be accessed from the DVD or desktop and there is also a What's New 'Previous' folder in the Training Docs\AccuMark Documentation folder for older release documents from version V8.0 to version V9.0
