Hello, I am using Illustrator CS6 with the Cutstudio Plugin and it have worked well for two years. Now it just suddenly stopped working without me having changed anything in the programs. I can still see the plugin in the Extensions list, but i cannot even open it in Illustrator.

Can anyone help me explain whats happened and how i can change it? I am now unable to export designs into .cst files which my Roland cutter uses.

Thanks

Did you upgrade your OS recently, you may need to downgrade. But check the plug in manufacturer first and make sure you are running the latest version that works with CS6.

There are also free patches for CS6. (please mention the OS of your system in the future when posting, you ill get more and better replies)

Happened to me just 2 days ago. I have the GX-24 and after a couple of years working fine, just suddenly stopped working.

When trying to use the installer in the CD, I was was getting an error like 'This plugin does not have a valid signature and won't be installed'.

After some research and trying a few things, I found this page:

http://download.rolanddg.jp/en/cutting.html

Just use the selector on the left to find your cutter and will show you the drivers and plugins for WINDOWS/MAC. Download the one you need and use the extension manger to install it. In my case it showed a few warnings, but will let you continue anyway and install it.

Hopefully, this will help you.

Cheers,

Frank

Long story short for the original post, it was due to an outdated plugin. Updating the plugin to the latest version would have solved it, until March 17th 2021 which is the expiration of the signature for the most recent plugin version for CS6.

 

Two options:

1) Update the adobe software and get off Illustrator CS6. The downside to this is a) cost and b) waiting on Roland to update the CutStudio plugin to work with the latest version of Illustrator.

 

2) Use a program to make Illustrator CS6 think the date is before March 17th, 2021.
