I have purchased a license for both MACH3 and the Mach3 add on's on 3/2/2013 ( when I received the License (dot) dat files.
I am at my summer home in OR, and am trying to get a DIY 3D printer ( a SEEMECNC H1.1) up and running, and on two computers (a Dell Dimension 2350 and a Dimension 2400) I am having the same problem.  Pin 6 of the DB25 goes low when I start MACH3 and stays low until I reset the printer port or reboot the computer.  Both computers have a fresh install of win XP SP3, and a fresh install of Mach3.  I have swapped motor cables the problem follows the driver pin, I have swapped the driver card cable and the problem follows the printer cable pin 6.  I then take a DVM and connect to Pin 25 (gnd) and then measure
pins 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, for step and dir for x,y,z,and a.  Pins  2, 4, and 8 go to an between level when the approate axis is jogged, however pin 6 is low and does not go hi until the printer port is reset (Device Manager) or the computer is rebooted.  The pins 3,5,7,and 9 go from hi to low and back to hi when changing direction for the approate axis.
Please advise me of what setting I have set incorrectly, and directions on how to set it properly.
Thanks in advance.
