tweakie, My response to your message ....... Doh! I don' know why the thought didn't occur to me. Old age I guess. LOL

Craig. For some reason I was under the impression that Win 7 platforms wouldn't run Mach3. Don't know where I got that either.

Just trying to take care of what I think is going to end up being a dead HD and the problems I might run into reinstalling every thing on the new HD. Not sure if I could find all the drivers I need. Not exactly sure what the discontinued support by MS will do to me trying to reload them.

I've looked and not found a specific answer to my question. seems everyone is looking for the 64 bit answer. I down graded the win 7 I had to XP and installed a P port card. Can I go to a win 7 32 Bit and still have the Mach3 work as it does now. I don't use the PC for anything other than Mach3, solitaire and a big calculator. No internet connection. I hear a rough noise from the HD after its been running for a couple of hours so I'm sure a new HD is in the future and thought I'd go with win 7. I'm not sure there is a reason to drop XP other than the hype of your computer will explode if you keep XP on it. Should I just leave it as is. It works fine. Well, with the exception I will need a new HD sooner or later. So I guess my real question is if XP in its current config will work fine after a new HD should I even worry about win 7?

I just did a search with every concievable combination of Interior probing array and could not find it. The only thing i found was the find center of a circle on the x axis. its not a circle. I'll keep searching.

I looked at that, I thought it was doing something else. I'll try it out. thanks for the suggestion.

I have been looking for a macro to probe the inside of an object in x and y only. i know there is one user that is working on something like that but the last post I found he was off to work out the bugs. Can someone point me in the right direction. it would be used to......... say you have a box with an irregular shape and you wanted to cut a lid for it with a piece that actually slid into the box. I might not have phrased my search right but after looking for a couple of days I can not find anything. I looked in the tool box anddid may searches with multiple key words.
