Why do I get error message " secondary rotary position being used "

I could be missing something, but I only see "I" & "K" vectors

 

I did roughing, then added mill control for stop & message, then next operation gives me error?

I think you might get an answer sooner if you log a call...

I think you might get an answer sooner if you log a call with GTAC. They can probably look at your post and the operations to see why the alternate position is being used.
