Mach3 under Vista / Re: Mach3 under win10

Putting in port 1 solved the problem.  Motor running fine.  I'm going to hook up the other motors and switches.  Thanks for all the help.  This forum is great.  Dale

If I'm using usb with a UC100 motion controller, do I have to pick a port like when using a parallel port?

As I understand the 12-24V power is required only if you are going to have limit switches and an E stop button.  I have a 15V power supply attached to the board but have not been able to get a signal to Mach3 when I close the one limit switch attached to the board when looking at the inputs screen. 
Not sure what you mean for me to post my xml file.  Is it the Mach 3 setup file?
Thanks
Dale

Plugged in usb from computer to breakout board.  I now have 5 volts on the breakout board and going to the motor driver inputs.  Still no motor activity when I try to jog.  I don't get any voltage on the direction pins on the driver when I try to jog.  I must have this thing really screwed up.  Can you provide any more direction on what I can try.  Thanks

I have the usb cable plugged into the back of the UC100 and it is plugged into the breakout board.  I also have a 15V power supply plugged into it.  Can I remove the UC100 and check to see if one of the pins is providing the 5V power

I see no power at all on direction pins when jogging.  The blue light is lit on the UC100 and the DRO's are changing.  The motor turns free with the power off but is tight when turned on.  I have no voltage on the PV5V terminals on the ST-V2 breakout board.  Does this power come from the computer.  Thanks.

Thanks, that took care of that.  This is a new installation and I'm trying to get one motor working first.  After going through the pins and ports and other setup info I don't get any motor movement.  I've checked all the wiring and it seems correct.  Is there a way to make sure I'm sending a signal to the uc100 when I try to jog the motor.  Thanks,

I'm setting up a new machine.  Have mach3, and uc100 (not chinese) through a usb port.  Using windows 10.  First mach 3 start up it asked if I had a motion controller.  I couldn't get any motor jogging after configuring things.  So I uninstalled Mach3 and reinstalled it.  Now I can't get it to ask if I am using a motion controller.  I have even gone into "reset Device selection" to have it ask on the next start up but nothing happens.  Looking at the motion controller use it states that the device is operating correctly.  Not sure what to do.

Good information.   I'll look for a motion controller that will work with Mach 4.  Thanks,
