Please take a screenshot of the diagnostics screen as soon as you start Mach (Dont press reset or anything else).

Hood,
there are three screenshots, before reset, after reset and before reset with thc on pressed. Names are self explanatory.
Could I have problems with licence? (no licence or bad or wrong licence file)

You seem to have enable 1, 2 and 3 all set to Port1 pin 8, is that right? Dont see a need for that and it may cause issues.
What hardware do you have exactly, ie do you have breakout boards and can you post a link to the THC unit.

Hi Hood,
Enable 1,2 and 3 are for X, Yand Z axis. In my hardware are all connected together.
I builded my own THC device.
Now something iterresting:
I just downloaded Mach3 R3.042.020 version, installed it and see in Hel PAPA FABIO licenced!!!!!!!
What is this?
What in means "lockdown"?
I didn't purchase any licence, i intend to do this next few days.
Maybe this is the reason why I have problems?
Witch version do I need to install?

When do you see "Hel PAPA FABIO licenced!!!!!!!"
Is it when you go to Hekp menu then Sbout Msch3................
Or is it just when you start Mach?

Hood,
I mistake by typing.
When I go to Help and then "About Mach3" I see PAPA FABIO
Belows is animation in green color, various names are listed, etc
I tried both Mach3 R3.042.020 and Mach3 R3.042.021 versions, Papa Fabio is in both Help/About...
And both acts like I described before

If you have Enable 1, 2 and 3 all going to the same pin then I dont see a need for you to have them all set up.
Did you buy this machine from someone secondhand?
