Well, it could be any of the following -

1) Stepper wires hooked up incorrectly. Having one wire loose can cause a motor to only rotate one direction.
2) You 'Direction' pin assignment in 'Ports&Pins' is incorrect.
3) You have the system Hotkeys assigned incorrectly.
Happy machining , Jeff Birt

Another thing could be that your stepper drives can be configured for either Step/Dir  or CW/CCW. If that is the case then you may have them set to CW/CCW by mistake.
