This is what i ended up using

Dim p As New ProcessStartInfo
        p.FileName = "C:\Mach4Hobby\Mach4GUI.exe" 'Apostrophes in a file path? eek
        p.Arguments = " /p Mach4Router /o C:\Mach4Hobby\Subroutines\run.txt "
        p.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Maximized 'can be hidden

I am guessing the DLL option might work better ??

I Looked at that
I can call the script with a M code ??

-- Ref All Home() function.
function RefAllHome()
    mc.mcAxisDerefAll(inst)  --Just to turn off all ref leds
    coroutine.yield() --yield coroutine so we can do the following after motion stops
    ----See ref all home button and plc script for coroutine.create and coroutine.resume
    wx.wxMessageBox('Referencing is complete')

Mach4 General Discussion / Re: Mach4 Axis 0 Commanded While Disable Help

what that means is that the set of instructions that do the work of homing  your machine are calling for an axis (motor 0) that
is not enabled.

Have a look at Configure/Control/Axis Mapping per the attached. My machine has three axes, X,Y,Z and they are motors 0,1,2.
When my machine homes the homing instructions call for each to be homed.

You have two choices:
1) Enable the axis (motor) that is requested. Note this will prevent the error you have described but unless that axis (motor) is fitted
    then it will never move and therefore never home and that's a fault too.
2) Change the homing (referencing) instructions to call only those axes (motors) that you have enabled and installed.

Just as a matter of interest, I haven't tried it but what would happen do you suppose if say you had motor 0 assigned to the X axis as I do
but don't have a X axis home switch assigned? I suspect that would give a similar error to that you have described.


Hi Craig

You were right, my problem was i have motor 3 enable
My X axis uses motor 0 and slave motor 3, so i though i had to enable motor 3
when i took the check out everything was ok,
Seams i still get the error from time to time but everything is working well
probably something in the button scripts
