Rdworks AND Lightburn on same computer?

Post by Stan Mckinnon »

Anyone using Rdworks software AND Lightburn software on your OMTech? Is it even possible?
I'm a Lightburn user but need a couple of functions that only Rdworks supports. Thanks in advance.

As no one else is chiming in- I have both installed but rarely use RDw- as I recall only one can be connected at one time.

There's no problem using both on the same computer. The only restriction is that you can't have both talking to your laser at the same time. I'm curious which functions are only present in RDWorks?
