Mach4 General Discussion / Re: wine
« on: May 24, 2021, 08:54:35 PM »
Hi,
Mach4, as released is a Windows application, is there any particular reason to try to run it under Wine?

Mach4 is a relatively small and lightweight application and can be run very successfully on VERY modest PCs, including
Atom boards. Why don'y you use a cheap and cheerful Winodws10 PC to run the machine but then you could use
your Linux PC for CAD/CAM etc.

Really the PC running ypour machine should NOT run ANY other software.....so what matter if its a Windows PC?

Oh I know all that. But I also dislike windows greatly. Last week, I wanted an updated version of SheetCam running on my linux machine which runs my mill and my plasma table. The version of sheetcam for linux is old as hell and there doesn't appear to be any updates in the future. I ran the SheetCam 7 installer and it works extremely well. So, I thought to try Mach4. After installing the proper vcruntime lib's, Mach4 started right up surprising the hell out of me. Frankly I'd love a version of Mach4 that runs under linux realtime. And yes I know there was a version at one time a long long time ago that natively ran under linux.

Not sure if this actually works or not as my machine is not running at the moment. I also don't think it's a great idea for production however, god dammmn.

No dependency's of any kind. Although, this could be a windows protection type of issue. right click on the m4pw file and send me a picture of the screen. I remember I had an issue with the Mach4 help file not displaying until I had enabled allowing it to display as an internet file..

Fixed a small bug introduced when I was working on adding support for the XHC04b device.

needed a second device anyway. One for the router, one for the mill. Pathpilot will work with the original device I have. So i'll have to make the new one work for the cnc. But you are correct why bother support a company with such disregard for it's customers.. I feel sorry for those that have the XHC cnc control board.

I've now purchased a newer model of the device which will allow me to develop for it. You should see some progress within a month concerning the WHB04B version of the driver. Too bad XHC would not step up to the plate and supply either a driver, or a device so someone else can make a driver.
