Rabbit Laser & RDWorks software

As far as I can tell the lasers in the shop are Rabbit Laser model
QX-80-1290 Laser Engraving/Cutting Machine, correct me if I am wrong.

The software used for the class last nigh was RDWorks Version 8

RDWorks is free to down load, you can go out and search for it or you can download from my cloud server

I posted a .zip and .rar of the software as well as a PDF of the manual.

This will allow us to build are jobs outside of the shop then bring them in and test/burn…


Perfect. I didn’t bring pen and paper, so I’m glad to have the name of the software. Thanks!

My virus protection software hates your copy of the RDWorks software.

Further research - Artemis virus detected; browser hijacker. Also Windows detected two trojans.

I pulled the files from my server, will scan them in the morning.
my virus software did not report anything when I installed it.

running a scan of the .zip now, but here is another source for RDWorks

The Rabbit Laser site is a good source for downloads
including apps, fonts, etc…

I’m not saying there isn’t a virus in the file, but the installation files hosted at, which has it’s own virus scan/report, also reports that there are viruses. The people on the forum at report that the .rar files in the software cause false-positives for trojans. The majority of the scanners don’t find a virus, and the ones that do find different viruses from eachother. shrug I might run it on a virtual machine just to be safe.

The orginal file I downloaded was the .rar… I cant work with .rar on my windows system. So I put it on my linux server, and converted it to .zip. McAfee did not detect any virus in the zip, or the unpacked files.
it seems that false positives are common…
I am not going to share the files just the .pdf manuals. I posted a download link to rabbit laser that should suffice.


“A lot of AV companies have automated the process of creating signatures for static malware. Due to the fact that a lot of malware uses WinRar self-extraction archives at some point, the number of false positives had been growing rapidly in this area. False positives could not only prove costly for companies if they find some ‘suspicious’ tools on their hard disk, but the case of the magazine cover CDs illustrates how else false positives can have a significant impact on businesses. It should be noted that WinRar and GameMaker were just two examples of what could be many more.”

Where there’s smoke there’s fire. I’ve never come across software that tripped so many alerts as this one. Remember, China is not our friend.
