KitCAD i3 file://localhost/ TEST version

Saturday, January 17th, 2009

Re-Made and Uploaded a KitCAD i3 KGC TEST version for Windows (js/ActiveX by default) which will run with the default web browser using:
Or as a Signed Executable Program Application file at:
C:\Program Files\Kitchen\KitCADi3\KitCADi3ie5.exe

Some converters are not enabled (HMF, SXD, GD). Other bugs include ActiveX or other AV warning prompts about the running of content. Only Windows compatable operating systems are supported at this time by the TEST version.

The file write javascript functions used by the KitCAD i3 KGC TEST version is GalaSoft’s cExplorer extract by Laurent Bugnion (

Due to JavaScript Security the output functions will not work unless scripting security is disabled.  Other issues may occure with the file://localhost/C:/ that is evaluated by some web browsers into the URL of file://C: which will cause errors.

The KitCAD i3 KGC TEST version download required to make the links above work is titled KitCADi3_file_localhost

NOTE: The KitCAD i3 file localhost (download) causes a bug with a later KitCAD 2v5 Install of the Library System by users who search for BC2di; As a work-around to get missing Library System files install or Un-install KitCAD i3 file localhost.
