Hi,
What link did you try?

Since I don't know what URL you tried, I'll provide the current link:
MSM download

That will get you to the latest beta and is the link that is in the "Where to get MachStdMill" sticky thread.

Please let me know if you have any trouble with the link above.

Dave

Ray,

From everything I've tried, I'm pretty sure the server is up and the files are available.
I checked by using 2 different PCs, each with two browsers (IE 6 and Firefox); I went to the readme file via two different internet connections (one wired and the other EVDO) and I get the readme file every time....

I then tried all the other RC2 files and I get them also.

Could you have an old page cached in your browser? It might be worth clearing your browser cache.

Here is the literal URL for the RC2 readme file:
http://www.calypsoventures.com/msm_dl_files/RC2/MachStdMill%20README.pdf

You can try a copy and paste of that into your browser and see what happens.

Still nothing with firfox. something happened when I used explorer, it said it was done, it must be a short file? If it did download I can't find it..
I haven't had any problems downloading any other files in the past, downloaded screen just last night.

Dave, I downloaded the beta MSM with no problems and it loaded and run in Mach3.
Don't know why I can't download the the readme or manual.

WoW, That took some time. DL the Mach3 Ver,3.43.22 and it's OK now, found that out on your other forum, thanks.

Ray - sorry, you got caught in a bit of a catch-22 situation -
MSM requires 3.43.22 or later  - which the readme file calls out before you start installation of the software.
But, since you didn't have the readme file - catch-22.
I can't make MSM detect the 3.42.xx series of mach as the call to get mach's version info does not exist in 3.42.xx...

If you have run the MSM installer, the docs are all in c:\mach3\documentation\MachStdMill\
Please do look thru the readme file before going to much further so that you will have read the first time install instructions.
