Hood we got it fixed today. I am thinking that me and computers don't get along very well. When he sent me the Mach1Lic.dat file my e-mail changed the name of the file. So we had to download the file rename it to Mach1Lic.dat and put it in the folder and it works GREAT!!! Cut a few parts today and can't wait to do more. Thanks a bunch.

Hood the file he gave me is not a mach1lic.dat file I searched the mach3 folder and did a windows search and can not find a file by that name. the file that I got is called caolfot and when I try to open it it won't let me. I copied it to the mach3 folder and restarted the computer and I still have the demo version.

I just purchased my mach 3 program and got a file to download and I can't get it to work the instructions that he sent me said "download the file to c drive copy the file to the mach 3 documents folder and restart mach 3 and it will work" I copied it and put it in the mach 3 folder and I still have the demo version what am I doing wrong?  I know very little about computers but his sounded simple enough that I should be able to get it going.

Hood we got it going. Ignorance of computers always makes things more difficult. What I had to do was unzip the xlms folder and individually drag and drop each file into the mach3 folder. I didn't quite understant this but Tim talked me throught it on the phone. Thanks for all your help and I am sure I will have more questions in the future.

Hood I tried deleting the mach program that i had and downloading the one from the web site and it still does nothing. When you said "choose the corredt profile" what are you talking about? Do you have to go into the ports and pins to set them to some type of arrangement? or am I making this harder that it really is?

I made a mistake I am using the mach 3. I will try to download the trial version tonight after work . I did watch the tutorial on installation several times . the driver test worked ok, the printer port is ok and checked but when i got to the motor outputs I am not sure if the rest of this is right. motor outputs are for xyz are all set the same step pin 3, dir pin 2 step port 1 dir port 1, input signals none are enabled port 1 pin 0 at the bottom of the page it stated that pin# 10-13 and 15 are imputs. at the output signals output 1 enabled all port # 1 all pin # 0 and at the bottom it says that 2-9,1,14,16,17 are output pins. I noticed that on the tutorial some of these had different numbers and I don't know how you know which number belongs where. I thought that the xlm patch would set this for me but it has not changed anything. thanks for your help.

Hood attached is the patch for the mach that is supposed to make it work hope this will help. If I just download the mach from here will it at least get the machine to move?

I just purchased a  cnc shark and v carve and I am using the mach 2 trial for now and can't seem to get the machine to do anything. the mach program has g code showing from a sample tutorial from v carve it's a border that has 27 lines of code. i know that this is vague but any help would be appericated. I have no cnc experience so this is all new to me.
