Mach4 General Discussion / Re: License questions
« on: November 05, 2016, 11:17:02 AM »
I assume that you are delivering a machine to a customer who plans to provide
their own computer.

In this case you can purchase and deliver a coupon code and allow the end
customer to "purchase" his license on the MachSupport web site using the
coupon code as payment.

In the process of fighting viruses, Microsoft has built all 64 bit versions
of Windows, and also all versions of Windows 8 and later, with security
that does not allow direct access to the parallel port. This makes
it impossible for Mach4 or other applications that generate real time
signals to be able to use the parallel port properly.

General Mach Discussion / Re: Transfer from reseller ?

If you originally purchased from PMDX, please contact us directly. We now have
a process in place for transferring your license for self-management on the
license server.

Since your existing setup used a parallel port breakout board, you could also
consider a simple device like this:

Or if you are in Europe, as I suspect, you could buy this from the EU:

That is exactly why you should use a Packaged Profile. It saves everything, including Lua scripts,
screen edits, and so on.

.... and as Bob said, be sure to create a profile with your own name so it does not get overwritten
when you update. The standard examples get overwritten at install time.


346
You mention XML files, whereas Mach4 uses profiles that contain INI files among others.

There is more to a Mach4 environment than just the INI file. It is better to generate a
Package Profile (see Help > Support > Packaged Profile), and then use the Mach4 Loader
to import the profile.

Mach4 General Discussion / Re: How to update Mach4 builds?
« on: October 20, 2016, 11:38:18 AM »
If you installed build 3206 and run your old profile, you are probably still
running the old screen set, with its old probing routines.

Try using View > Load Screen > .. and select wx4.set to make sure
you have the current screen set.

Mach4 General Discussion / Re: Mach 4 setting x reference

Yeah.... videos for using Mach4.

I hope this is the first of many!

For me the audio level is a bit low, but the voicing is good.

Mach4 General Discussion / Re: Mach 4 V2 Windows 10
« on: August 22, 2016, 05:05:01 PM »
If you have Windows 10 Home you can somewhat limit it if you connect to the net
using WiFi and tell Windows that it is a "metered" connection. Unfortunately this
currently does not work for a wired connection.
