Fixed it!

Wow - what a gong show.
And what any easy fix in the end....

regsvr32 scrrun.dll

Done.  Really!  That was it.

100% total Mach re-install didn't fix it.

Tried to install a VB6 update patch thinking that might install some missing files - it wouldn't run!
Sheesh...  at this rate it might be faster if I just reinstall windows from scratch!  :O

Anyone planning on porting Mach to Mac?  ;)

So from a few background conversations going on...  it's looking like a problem with Active X, not Mach or NFS.

Will post more when it's fully resolved.

Neither.  Tried them all (repeatedly!).  I'm so stuck in it, I have to load a different wizard just to 'back out' to the main screen!  :O

The buttons do have the appearance of being clicked, but they do nothing.

Removed the whole directory, RE-downloaded another fresh copy, copied it over, rebooted the whole computer (why not eh?!).

Still no dice.

Removed (well, renamed) the license, restarted. No go.
Tried to run VB scripts as above - works fine.
(and you're right - you ARE password protected! Had to try... heh)

Pretty sure I tried that, but I'll do it again to be sure (I'm on my Mac upstairs right now).

One thing I was thinking, was I had recently done a lot of house cleaning on that machine trying to lean it out (kill MSN, etc).
Is it possible that a library/dependancy got wiped out when some random program got uninstalled?

Since NFS was unlicensed until a day or so ago, I hadn't used it since I initially installed everything in demo mode, so I wouldn't have noticed it's death.

Oh, and I just came upstairs and ran it on the machine that's in demo mode - works fine!

I'm going to add the license file to this one and see if I can break it too.  ;)


edit:  Nope - didn't break on this machine.

Ok - thought...  what if I'm missing a library or something on the other machine? 
I ran a windows update to see if it would add a file/patch/etc, but nothing. 
Does it use .net?  Something in VB maybe?  I don't write wizards (just Arduino stuff!), so I'm a but lost as to what to look for.

Just looked here.  Nope.

I even thought "oh!" - materialS.txt, and it came material(no S).txt -- that wasn't it either.  :(

I have:
 Volume in drive C is CNC_drive
 Volume Serial Number is D85E-B4E2

 Directory of C:\Mach3\Addons\Newfangled

09/15/2012  09:53 PM    <DIR>          .

               3 Dir(s)  62,043,160,576 bytes free


So they're all there that I can see.  As I said, I had DL'd a fresh copy just in case, but no dice.

I'm lost here...  and I'm usually the one that finds things!

I was running mach3 in demo mode.  Registered it (along with NFS).
All seemed to be fine BEFORE I registered, except of course it wouldn't post the g-code, as expected.
Now that I've put the .dat files in \mach3, I can't even get past "pick material" etc! Continue button does nothing except look like it's being clicked.

I just downloaded a 'fresh' copy of 2.86, deleted the old.  Rebooted mach (about 10 times).  Same thing.

Renamed the .lic file, now it says I'm un-licensed....  and doesnt work!

Whud-I-do?!
