Reporting Multiple single segment Feature control frames

I am looking for the correct command to use for a multiple single segment feature control frame (FCF with two separate boxes with position symbol)? Is the only way to do this with the composite position command?

Re: Show location tolerances and Save

Helpdesk file is attached.

I recently transferred a full version of CMM Mangager to another computer. When i hit connect message comes up that says, "no machine response detected". I have the latest FARO driver installed. Any idea what I need to do?
