Hello Klaus.
I had already removed all the unused plugins from the directory folder because I just didn't like the clutter, so maybe that's why I haven't had any start up issues like the OP has.

I'm using v3.09 of Klaus's plugin and have been for quite some time. Mine takes about 2-3 seconds to open.
I'm only a hobby user, so I'm ok with the time it takes to open. :D
Klaus made quite a few functionality changes between v2.14 and the current version. My guess would be that's why it takes longer.
I've never had it take anywhere near 8 secs.

Instead of probing the entire slab, would you be better off modifying your machine to have some sort of floating spindle.
Look into engraving using a nose cone.
Have a read of this. https://www.johnsonplastics.com/engravers-bible/nosecones

Mach3 under Vista / Re: Another newbie hoping for a miracle answer

First thing I'd confirm is that the PC is running Win7 as a 32 bit system.

Mach3 Minimum Recommended Requirements:
Requirements if using the parallel port for machine control:

    Desktop PC (Laptops are not supported) with at least one parallel port
    32-bit version of Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 (64-bit versions will not work)
    1Ghz CPU
    512MB RAM
    Non-integrated Video Card with 32MB RAM(Large G-code files, especially 3D files will require a video card with 512MB RAM or higher)

I just checked Tweakie's link.
Worked fine for me.

I'm curious too.
My first thought was something to do with gitar, harp or piano strings.
Can you pull it apart more?

They will be great additions for sure.
I've downloaded the file and I'll update my machine when I'm next in the shop.
Thanks heaps.

You can set a slow zone distance when your in the Homing and limits menu of Mach3. Don't know about Mach4.
It works exactly as you're discribing.
Have a read through the manual to find more detail about it. It's been many years since I set my machine up.

Try the "TAB" instead.
