Driver test won’t open up.
Disclosure: mach3 is running from a memory stick.

Sorry
Windows 2000

I have downloaded a copy of Mach 3 “test” program on a new computer -windows 2000.  The motor tuning page doesn’t come up. I also can’t get it to run motors even when I plug the computer into a functional machine. I changed the motor ports to match what works.
Is there something wrong with my software download? Is it standard for the motor tune function to be disabled in the test version?
Thank you,
Jim

Ok, I get it.  My values are always 10 times more, so if I want to move x one inch I put in G01 x10.  But this is not the case with the wizard. I'll try it now as you have directed on my machine. thanks,
Jim

The pockets diameter I want is 1-3/8" . So I put in 13.75.  Should it be 1.375?  I'm. To using mm for anything on this particular job.

Hood,
I reduced the overlap to 20% and am still having the problem. The code is not generating any movement on the y axis. Please see the attached screenshot and code.
thanks,

I am having trpouble withy my Mach3 circle pocket cutting wizard. On smaller circles, the Y axis does not move. The code reads y0, and X is correct. What am I doing wrong? And can someone explain the "ramp" variable.
thanks,

I bit the bullet and bought a smoothstepper from Warp9 products.  Works great and can be either USB or Ethernet connection
