I am currently running Windows 7 64 bit and cannot get cutting master 2 or Adobe illustrator to cut the vinyl. I am using a USB connection, have installed the driver and the plugin (as admin), but the plugin is not working correctly with illustrator. I am considering seeing if I need to use CS4 but I'd rather not buy some outdated software. In Illustrator CS5 the plugin gave an error message and I don't see any new options to export or use it.

Whenever I do send anything to the cutter to "print" I hear the fans start blowing the cutting arm moves but then just stops, no error code nothing. When I try to use the cutting master 2 app to open any files (eps, AI) it freezes and crashes. The only other formats it seems to allow are PRT PLT and JOB and I don't know how to export to save as these. I'm dying to start playing with my vinyl cutter but the thought of having to build a spare XP box with CS4 with the printer port adapter just seems like an unnecessary, (and incovenient) cost, not to mention my shop has limited space.

Do you know if the CS4 will let you zoom with the mouse roller?

I am using CS3 and I hate having to hold the alt key. ANd even then its not smooth.

Man I wish they made CM2 for Photoshop.
