Important: If you store this data in non-default locations you will want to use the “Advanced Migration” and select the custom file locations manually.

Also, each version of Mastercam can only reach back 3 versions for Migration. For example, if you need to migrate from 2019 to 2023 you will need to install 2022 and migrate from 2019 to 2022 then from 2022 to 2023.

See the example in the image below:

  • It will process for a while and a message will pop up please select “Replace the original file in the destination folder” and check the check box that says “Apply this action to all subsequent conflicts”. See the image below:
