Autostart profile in windows xp
« on: February 20, 2010, 01:06:41 PM »
Hi all,

When I first installed Mach3 I had a desktop icon of my profile, but I deleted it :-/.
Now I have a dedicated computer for my machine and want windows xp to start up automatically with my profile when the computer starts up.

Using the startup option in windows xp is not a problem, but which program do I have to start? When I select "mach3.exe" an option screen appears,

Thanks,
Cor

You need to put the shortcut into the Startup in XP.
To get the shortcut just change the path of any shortcut icon you have for Mach on the desktop (or any other for that matter) to
C:\Mach3.exe\ pMach3Mill

If its a custom profile just have the name of that after the p, also note the space between the \ and the p

Hey Hood, thanks for the reply, but unfortunately , it doesn't work, I get an error message. Attach a photo from the path and the error message. My profile is called cnccor.

Many thanks,

Just to be clear what you should have is
C:\Mach3.exe/ pcnccor

@ Hood,

OEPS... totally forgot about this topic (again)......

I just tried this , also in the command line , but it didn't work , again an error message.

This is the line I used:
C:\Program Files\cnc\mach3\Mach3.exe/ pcnccor

"cnccor" is the profile I click when I get the little interface when I start Mach3.
Mach3 is in the correct folder C:\Program Files\cnc\mach3\Mach3.exe , when I past this in the command line mach 3 starts

Anyone has a clue why the / pcnccor doesn't work? (I also tried "Mach3.exe/ pcnccor , Mach3.exe\ pcnccor, Mach3.exe \pcnccor, Mach3.exe /pcnccor, all to no avail)

Thanks again ,
Cor

There should be a space after the exe and before the /p switch and a space after the switch and before the profile...like this...

C:\Program Files\cnc\mach3\Mach3.exe /p cnccor
