Please be careful with the results and use common sense.

Installation

HSMAdvisor setup requires administrative privileges to install into Program Files.

Although it is not required, we recommend you to install standalone HSMAdvisor prior to installing the hook: this will make sure you have default tool libraries, machines and languages.

HSMAdvisor Hook for X9 needs to be installed into C:\Program Files\mcamx9\ directory.

Hook for MasterCAM 2017 needs to be installed into C:\Program Files\mcam2017\ directory.
