How to install FastCAM

I have just bought a CNC machine that has come with FastCAM. Trying to install and it gets to this screen. I'm not sure what it is actually asking for. If it is the machine I have purchased, it is not on the screen. I have a Starfire.

Hi Melinda,

For the STARFIRE controller, please use the START controller option.

Let me know how you go from there!

I have chosen this option but are unable to access the actual programs now. Operation not permitted is the message that is coming up.

Thank you for this help

Hi Melinda,

Please make sure you have the USB dongle plugged in when trying to run FastCAM. In addition, if it is plugged in but you are having trouble, try this guide:
