General Mach Discussion / Mach3 on USB card Windows 7 help please

I am sure that this has been posted many times before and I’m sure will pop up many times again.
I have one of the Chinese USB break out boards that will be ran on a Windows 7 computer. One of the questions would be, which should I go with, Mach3, or Planet CNC on getting my machine back running? Yes the computer has a parallel port and I have been running Mach3. Hard drive went down, lost some of the setting, not all, and the relay (for spindle and vacuum) on the old board went out also. So really want to try making the USB board work if at all possible. I have no paper work at all, so any help with this would be so kind.
Computer, is HP P4 3.2 Ghz, with 4 Gig of DDR2. Am using 3 limit switches at this time as Homing, table is 42.5 in. on the X, 36.75 in. on the Y and 7.5 in. for the Z. If you need any more info about my setup, ask and I can get it to you.
Really could use some help here, please.

Is there going to be a fix for the parallel port so Mach can run on Windows 10?

OK, got it fixed.
Not sure if this will work in every case, but did in mine, or this case.
Open the Plugin Control and Activation box where you configure your plugins.
Click on the CONFIG tab to the right of your XBox you want to set up.
When that box opens, you will see a place to enter a Vendor ID and a Product ID.
If these are filled in, you would, or should be OK. If they only have "0" in the boxes, you will to enter something.
I used some # I found on a web site and it started working after I restarted Mach3.
Don't know if it will work for all controllers, or not, but here they are
Vendor ID: 0E6F
Product ID: 011F
Like I said before, don't if it will work in all cases, but did for me.
Good luck, and thanks 

General Mach Discussion / X- Box controller
« on: January 03, 2015, 12:47:55 PM »
Have been using an X- Box on my table for a good while with no problems. Got the controller off of EBay, installed the download from Art Soft, Microsoft and so on. A wire in the USP cable from the controller broke and it has quit working. Can move the cable around and it will make connection, then drop off again, so I know it's in the cable. Got a new X- Box rock candy controller from a local store and can not get it to work. I have uninstalled all software related to the old controller and reinstalled everything, get green light on controller, but I have no control of Mach3 at all. Any ideas? Thanks muchley!  

General Mach Discussion / Re: Pattern troubles
« on: July 29, 2014, 12:53:33 PM »
Maybe I have worded the first post incorrectly,
What is going on is, if I load a pattern (G Code) that is say 9.5 inches wide by 4.5 inches high, in the passed it has been cutting it correct. Now I load the same pattern (G Code) into Mach3 it is making it twice the size.
Any setting in Mach 3 that may have gotten changed by mistake?
Have checked everything I can think of, to check.
Any help on what could be going on here?
