My system runs mach3 just fine- same ESS, same cabling, everything. if it fails to start M4 I can simply click M3 and it will run fine, so I have no hardware issues.

I reinstalled M4 and now it has lost my license, and when I look at the About box there is no pc id. Thats a new problem, I suppose for a new thread.

I installed the latest plugin. Now the spindle relay works, but the ess fails to connect on startup very often. If it fails mach is hung and I have to do a reboot. It can take 20 minutes of trying before I get a good boot.

Not a very useful system.

Nice idea, I will talk to Brian about it.

We have some greast new operations now, but it has taken a couple more months than I expected. I think all that is left before release is to complete the help docs, which I hpe to do today or tomorrow. "real soon now"

There were no macros in my macro folder. There are in the default profile, but I created a custom one and there are none.

Now, this is strange. I was looking at the diagnostic page and clicking the spindle on button to see that the LEDs changed. They did change as expected. I clicked the ref X button and the spindle motor started, regardless of the spindle button state. Once started the only way to turn it off was to exit mach4.

Anyone seen this happen?

I cannot get my spindle relay to turn on. I have the latest Mach4 and Ess plugin. I have all the motors configured and working fine. I have set the spindle on signal in the ess plugin, and I have set the spindle outputs in Mach4. The mach diagnostic page shows the Leds for spindle on and spindle forward go on and off as I click the spindle button.

Everything seems right, but no spindle on.  All the hardware works fine with Mach3 so I know I have the relay wired right and the VFD set right-

What am I missing?

Time again for the Cabin fever Expo. Brian and several others will be there, Mach4 will be running, and Brian will do a Mach4 seminar on Saturday.

Its in York PA with lots of good places to stay and eat.

This is always a great show, lots of models to see, plenty of 'good stuff' to buy from the vendors or the auction. A semi-silent auction on Saturday always has lots of tools and models. You can sell your excess stuff in the consignment area, and take any money you get there and buy other good stuff.

See http://cabinfeverexpo.com for details.

I loaded the new code and now when Mach4 starts up it displays the progress bar for loading screen elements, and about half way done it hangs. There is a ghost of a message box over the progress bar, centered in the screen, so one of your messages tired to show.

Drivertest runs ok

I am going to take my PC up to Brians shop on Friday, I will get him to see whats happening.

Thanks for your help

yeah, when it hangs task manager cannot kill it, only the power switch will get it.

Ok, but that fails in the same way. I can configure the plugin, but when I go to set the motion device it hangs.

I deleted the old profiles and let loader build a new one, same result.
