Mach3 under Vista / Driver Test Will Not Work in Vista
« on: May 31, 2017, 03:06:43 PM »
I am running Mach3 on 32 bit windows vista and the driver test will not work, I looked in the device manager and saw mach3 pulsing engine, clicked on that and saw the driver but it has a question mark against it, when i go to the Mach3 folder i see the driver test icon, i right click on it and run as administrator, then a box appears on my screen asking me if i want to run the program, I click yes, and the screen just flickers and the program doesnt start, when i was running on xp it all worked fine, any ideas on this one please.

Hi, I am trying to make an indexing plate on my CNC router, i have made them before without out problems, but i have just started to make another one and the circles are not running true, I cant see that i have changed anything so it should be the same as the last one i made which was perfect, the only thing i hace done is to use an airline on the keyboard to blow the swarf out, i was wondering if it might have pressed a key and changed something, the first circle seems ok but the next one is way off centre, tried to upload an image but its not having it.

I am evaluating Mach4 on , my windows 10 pro laptop and seem to have a problem of Mach4 locking up and freezing at times, I'm pretty sure its not a problem with my laptop as it is very powerful and can handle memory intensive programs with ease, I do not have a machine connected to the laptop and my router is running Mach3 on another win xp computer, I'm just wondering if all will be ok if I run Mach4 on my win xp computer before I buy a license.
