General Mach Discussion / computer locking up - any suggestions....
« on: March 08, 2011, 04:50:09 PM »
Hello, Hopefully this is the right place to ask for a little assistance.   I recently just got my Bridgeport knockoff up and running under Mach3 current release (Mach3 R3.043.022).  However after some period of time (10 minutes to 5 hours) the computer completely freezes and requires that I remove the power to get it restarted.  I am using an older HP business machine under W2000 and I have tried turning off zone alarm and the virus protection to no avail.  I then installed the previous release Mach3-2.63 and all seems to run well now.  I have a few questions:

1)   Is this a common problem perhaps with a straight forward solution? 
2)   Being new to Mach3 I am trying to determine if I am missing very much by running the older release (obviously the new release exists for a reason) comments?
3)   I would like to assign keystroke macros to explicitly set the jog feed distance setting and not just roll through the predetermined values - is there a tutorial somewhere for this?

I can certainly provide more details of the setup of it is needed but I thought I would keep this simple to start.

Thanks in advance.
