Im not 100% sure but im pretty sure this user is XHC trying to smooth over there complete F#!K up of there drivers not being running with Mach4GUI. This user is a brand new user with no other posts other than these.
When i get time i am going to test this new driver and see if it works with Mach4GUI like it should. The driver this guy has posted isnt even listed for download on the XHC website. I could be wrong but i think this is all BS.
Nice spotting on the licence by the way

You can contact him if you would like. I am going to test this driver myself. Thanks

Thanks i will test this.

Does the driver work with Mach4GUI.exe?

Is that you XHC? Brand new account first post.
Does the fix work with Mach4GUI.exe? Most likely not? Which means its basically useless and shouldnt be advertised as a fully functioning Mach4 card.

I have figured it out!
I figured it must be high frequency noise coming out of the VFD but dont have an osiliscope so i wrapped both the 0v line and the 10v line around some ferrite chokes as many times as i could and boom off she went perfect speeds and perfect voltages.
Photo for others struggling with this. Only took me about a solid week to find it dam it!

mkullman, did the other user you were emailing get back to you about how he went with the XHC WHB04B?
If not im ready to pull the trigger on the older version in wireless and use your driver.

The measured impedance of the VFD input which is the same on most VFDs is 19.8kOhm. If you do the math the input pulls almost nothing. Also with the wires disconnected from the VFD and 1kohm load between the wires the voltage does not drop.
Im stumped on this one.

Cncprint did you fix this in the end? I am having a similar problem. Works perfect when not connected to VFD (even with 15k ohm across it.) As soon as its connected to VFD voltage drops. The max voltage i can get is 2.8 even trimmed with POT. This is Pokeys57cnc

Thanks Dazed
I see there is already this code in the screen load script for the retract button. Shouldnt it read this and move my z axis up? Its not commented out.

-- Retract      added 9/19/2016

function SetRetractCode()
    local inst = mc.mcGetInstance();
    local hReg = mc.mcRegGetHandle(inst, "/core/inst/RetractCode");
    mc.mcRegSetValueString(hReg, "G80G40G90G20\\nG53 G00 Z0\\nM5\\nG53 G00 X0Y0"); --This is the Gcode string that will be executed when retract is requested
