The rest of the attachments.

I am not certain I can get the old laptop on line. Probably can but we'd have to try.

I did use the built-in XP unzip utility which worked fine.

I'm about 20 miles Northeast of San Francisco in Vallejo.
I have successfully used a XP laptop with an older version of BCL. The first version you offered with imaging.
So I downloaded the zip file several times on my Win 10 Pro desktop that has already been upgraded to the latest BCL a while ago. No problems there, it works fine and I could export G-code to the laptop and run it on the older version.
Taking the unzipped file set to the laptop, setup.exe was missing. OK, extract it out of the zip file separately and use it. I get the error message about the uninstall file. BCL will not work because it tells me it is not a 32 bit program.
I tried a reinstall over that and unzipping the file on the laptop with no joy.
Uninstalled all BCL files and installed 2.0a, the only other version I have. It installed and worded properly.
Uninstalled all BCL files again and attempted an install of 3.2a. No joy. In fact, now it will not finish the installation. At the end of the installation where the last of the installed files are shown, the error message comes up again.
I've attached screen captures of the first message during the installation process and then the error message at the end of the installation process. Unfortunately there is no way to export the details of the error message so I scrolled and captured each window.
The ID Code number when 2.0 came up is BC964AE3
I'll send the rest of the screen shots in another reply since I've reached the attachment limit.

I had BCL 2.3a running nicely on an old 32 bit XP laptop. Attempted to upgrade to 3.2 and the installation failed.
First the setup.exe file (only) will not extract using PeaZip to unzip the files into a new directory. I could copy it from the zip file to the location of the other BCL files in a new folder.

The installation has a problem at the end where it states it cannot find the uninstall file. However, the install program signals success.

Attempting to run 3.2 brings up an error message that 3.2 is not a 32 bit program. I cannot find, in the forum release files, where BCL is now only a 64 bit program.

I reinstalled from a new download and installed BCL directly from the zip file with the same results.

BCL 2.3 runs nicely in my Win10 Pro machine.

Any ideas?

Won't work as well but might be OK, depending on the use.

You use the superglue to fasten the body of the cap to the board and then solder the contacts with a low-watt (10 or so) soldering pencil using a very little bit of resin solder that you cut off and place on the cap contacts. Better if you could arrange to put a flattened piece of solder (and a little bit of soldering paste) between the board and the contacts then superglue the body to the board. The a quick touch of the soldering pencil should melt the solder. Remember little is the byword.

Or, since you have a volunteer, mail it off!

Your mileage may vary.

Here I was thinking an A3 is equivalent to a 17 caliber.

To take pictures of reflective surfaces, use a light tent that will diffuse the light. Plastic water pipe will make a frame and a white bed sheet the covering. Just leave enough opening for the camera's lens.

I have a Wi-Fi camera I purchased from China for $28. I can watch the laser, the CNC mill or the 3D printer all at one go. It is trainable from my cell phone or tablet so I can look almost 360 degrees around the shop and up and down. Couldn't train the dog to bark if something went wrong so this is better..

That is why you use a temporary e-mail address or mark their incoming as spam. Not a problem if you know what to do.

They want your name and e-mail address but the book looks useful.
