Installation of CorelDraw CNC Plugin (gCode Generator 2)

After downloading you can install the CorelDraw CNC and cutting plugin. The setup program is an EXE file. If you have downloaded the software as a zip archive, please unzip the EXE accordingly.


Setup must be run as an administrator. This is because the access rights in the CorelDraw addon directory are only "read" by default. The CorelDraw G-Code Plugin must be installed in this addon directory so that everything works properly.

All product variants of gCode Generator (full or trial version) are installed as follows:


(1) Close all running CorelDraw applications.


(2) Start the setup by double-clicking.
