Yes!! Did a standard install on a completely different machine. I checked the pins with an oscilloscope and was able to see data on my x,y,z axis pins. My jog is moving the motors...Thanks for all your input. I'm guessing the printer port was bad and leave it at that.

Hi, I'm having the same parallel port problems that you are. Did you install an add on port? if so how did it work out?

Thanks, New J

I used a completely different machine. I have a computer that is totally dedicated to this project now and it has only windows XP and mach3 software on it. I did the exact load of mach3 and it worked perfectly without having to load special drivers or any advanced tweaks to the setup.
