Hello all,
 I have been running version 1.84 without problems but today decided to upgrade to v2.0.
 I did not uninstall 1.84 but rather when asked if I wanted to upgrade I said yes and the installation went well. The problem is that I do not have movement in the DRO's or machine when jogging or running a file.
 I am fairly new to all this and would appreciate any sound advice.
 B. Ender

Strange one, try downloading and installing again. Also look at your port and pins and make sure you have the right pins set up. Might also be worth loading a different screenset just in case the one you are using is corrupted.

I have tried downloading and reinstalling
Ports and pins are good
New screenset has no effect

I also
 Completly removed all traces of Mach and reinstalled.... no go
 I reinstalled  v1.8 and it still works as well as ever
 
 I installed on a differant computer... all works well
 I did a side by side comparison on both computers only differances are in Diagnostics first computer has no pulse freq, time in int., or port1 pins current state is all blank
 
 One last major differance first computer is laptop. (Keep in mind v1.8 works well and has been doing so for nearly a year)

  My conclusion will be that V2.0 is less laptop friendly then v1.8 until perhaps someone else can come up with new ideas. Until then I am going back to v1.8

 Thankyou, B. Ender

That is odd... that is telling me that the Driver did not install :( If you try it again be sure that you reboot the system and  then install.

I still do not know what the problem was but....
 I've been wanting to format the harddrive and start over for awhile due to some other unrelated issues, so that is exactly what I did. I now have a system dedicated entirely to Mach3 and was successful in installing v2.0

 One last question: What does the "To Go" button do?

 Thanks, B. Ender

Not certain but I think it should change your dros to count down to zero for each move of line code. I'm using a different screen set so I can't test it for you right now. Give it a go in the air on some code and let me know.

I tried this out and found that, when to go button is active, rather than the dro's giving position coordinates they give distance between current position and position of where it is headed.

The button should read "Distance to Go" It is the amount that each axis must move to finish the Block of code that it is on.

Hi Brian,

is the distance to go a global thing or is there a set of dro just for this.
