Driver test question.............
« on: December 06, 2010, 11:50:21 PM »
I have been having multiple problems with my Blacktoe V4 2X4 setup. I was told to run the "driver test". It is listed in the folder but will not run. Does anyone know where I might find a back up copy that will start & run?

Hi,

Did you shut down Mach3 before running the driver test?

Generally if the driver test does not run then the drivers are not installed. Try downloading the latest version of Mach and re-installing, this should solve your problem.

I thought that running the driver test installed the driver, if it wasn't already??

Gene, what kind of problems are you having?

Do you have any other suggestions for why the driver test doesn't run then ?

What is meant by it doesnt run, is it opening and not doing anything or is it not opening at all?
How are you trying to run it?

When I try to run "Driver Test.exe, it will not open or run. The file shows that there is 328KB in the file,but it just will not start. This is while Mach3 is not running.

Disable any antivirus you have and see if that helps.

The computer that I run Mach3 on is not hooked to the internet, And Mach3 is just about the only thing on the hard drive.
