I am seeing exactly the same problem as you are seeing but afraid I have no idea why.
Do you see messages in the ticker window?
I am seeing a few but as I have never seen them before I am unsure what they relate to.

Ok  bit more testing and I think I half know whats going on. It would seem Mach thinks its got code running as pressing the Stop when you first enable Mach seems to cure the issue, why its happening I am not sure but may be something to do with the feedhold switch, try disabling the oem triggers in Ports and Pins Inputs and see if that helps.

Thanks, Hood. I will try that (later, need to go out for a few hours) and report back. If nothing else, hitting STOP when opening Mach is better than running a toolpath! Better to get it functioning properly, of course.

Try changing the active state of the OEM trigger inputs and see if that helps.

Hood, I did have time to try disabling those OEM trigger inputs. Yes, it does work. However, I need to check with Romaxx to see if those are active triggers for the closed loop function. If they are, I will need to leave them active. I'll let you know. Thanks for all the help!

No they are for your Start and Feedhold buttons. I am wondering if they are NC switches and if so then the active state will be wrong. Try enabling them again and change the active state and see if its still ok, also try the switches, ie load code and press the start and then feedhold buttons on your machine and see if they still work.

Hood, with the OEM Trig #1  enabled, and Active Low on each enabled, the jogging works, as do the Start and Feed Hold switches (on screen buttons and XBox buttons). Fantastic! Thanks very much!

Hood, yes, Cycle Start and Feed Hold buttons on the machine itself also work. Thanks, again!
