Mach4 General Discussion / Re: Running Mach 4 ver.2 on Windows XP

Thank you Steve, that is all I needed to know, was an explanation to the query.

You will all be pleased to know that I will not be progressing that avenue any further. I have already sourced another PC, so now looking forward to downloading the software and getting it all up and running.

Thank you all for your replies.

Thanks Craig,

For your reply, but I was using this PC before I ventured into rebooting and loading Windows 7 or 10 on it, as it was said to be able to use and run it on Windows XP in the Mach 4 details.

But I only asked a question if anyone had, had the same problem. There was no need to be offensive in your reply. Even with humour in it.

As I have reloaded the software in the meantime and got the same response I was already of the opinion of putting the current windows on, it was just going to be a test run.

But I would liked to have resolved the question first, for myself.

Haven't you as an engineer wanted to resolve a problem you may have had, before going on to the next job in hand.

So if I ask a reasonable question in the future I hope it would be reasonable reply.

Firstly "Hello" to All,

I am new to this forum with some knowledge on software, trying to get Mach 4 running on Windows XP.

PC - Dell Optiplex GX280 Pentium 4 Tower, 2G Ram, etc. specifiation checked against requirements for Mach 4.
Windows XP Professional.
Windows updates complete, as far as availibility allows, with SP3, on and loaded.
Mach 4, Download Successful!
vc-edit loaded.
At present no separate Graphics Card installed. Running on, on board Graphics, until I am sure Mach 4 will run!!

My problem is that having got over some of the missing ".dll" files, I am now left with another problem, which is, when I try to run Mach 4 from the the Start Button I get the following message "The procedure entry point InitializeCriticalSectionEx could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll"  I researched this message, and it apparently was not addressed until Windows Vista OS.

So could anyone help me sort this, as some of you say you are running Mach 4 on XP. -  HOW!!!! as in the write up it is stated it will run on Win XP

I'm trying to sort this out so that my husband can decide whether to invest in the registered version.

I do the IT, my husband's the engineer.

Many thanks in advanced, from a very stressed newcomer Jennie
