CutRight Post+ does not launch after installation. What is wrong?

Which CAM APT files can CutRight Post+ read?
Currently CutRight Post+ can read Fusion 360 and Siemens NX APT outputs. We will be expanding on that in the coming months. If there is a specific CAM APT you'd like CutRight Post+ to read, please contact us.
