Correction;  I thought that I had but maybe I did it in a plugin thread.

General Mach Discussion / Galil plug-in
« on: June 25, 2014, 04:09:20 AM »
When I try to load Mach 3 after installing the Galil ST plugin.  I get a message saying that the plugin .DLL is not valid.  I have downloaded and installed a few times with no change.  I have also tried this on 2 separate computers, one with Win 7 and the other with XP.
However, if I install the Galil plugin for the older Galil software then Mach 3 accepts it.
Is there a known issue with the ST plugin?  If so is there a workaround?

BTW.  I have the same problem when loading the Galil ST plugin on 2 separate computers, one running Win 7 and the other with XP.

General Mach Discussion / Computer hardware for Mach?

I am just setting up a Mach 3 system with a Galil motion Controller card.  So the hard work will be done inside the Galil.
My question is, "Is Mach 3 performance overly dependent on the PC speed and RAM size?  Is a multi-processor PC an advantage?".  The PC will be dedicated to only run the Mach 3/Galil combination, no internet connection nor other software.

When I load the ST Galil plugin I get a message saying that the DLL is bad.  I have downloaded the plugin a few times but with the same result.  The standard Galil plugin loads without problem.
Is there a known issue with the ST version.

Mach4 General Discussion / Re: Mach 4 and Galil

I have just got a Galil 2143 to upgrade an old Anilam system with servos.  I expect to be buying Mach 3 and/or 4 to drive this.
As I understand it, Mach 3 was designed to do the controlling within Windows and output to the parallel port with signals for steppers.  The Galil plugin then has to convert that into a suitable form for the Galil card and output the commands on the ethernet output.
My question is; Will Mach 4 natively create output more inline with the needs of external motion controllers?
