But you created it so you would have 3D somewhere. If you need to run it on today's machines you can install Virtual Box (free) and some version of Windows in Virtual Box and finally put your old KeyCad 3D in that Windows.

If you sold/lost your CD well, you hunt on ebay, etc.

Idea to open mdl file
by fastrecruitment / March 30, 2014 3:31 PM PDT

I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer.
or You would need the original *.gmax file, opened in gmax to make any changes. I am not sure what you expect to change in the *.mdl to make the gauges work better.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
