The pre-release version expires in XX days displays – Mastercam 2024


When launching the Mastercam 2024, a warning appears telling the user that the pre-release version expires in XX days. The initial release of Mastercam 2024 will time out on August 10, 2023.

Mastercam 2024 prerelease error


The pre-release warning was not removed from the release version of Mastercam 2024.  Update 1 extended the date but did not remove the expiration warning completely.


Update to Mastercam 2024 Update 2 to fully disable the expiration warning and make your installation permanent.  Mastercam 2024 Update 1 also has an expiration warning so update to Update 2 when possible to avoid this issue completely.


Use one of the 3 methods listed below to perform an update.


  1. Start 2024 and a Mastercam update bubble will show in the lower right of your screen in the system tray area. Click on this to activate the Update Manager.
  2. Manually check for updates from the Windows Start menu – Start > Mastercam 2024 > Check for Updates and then follow the instructions.
  3. Start 2024 and select Update Mastercam from the Help menu.

Mastercam must be shut down for the update to install properly.
