I have a small problem with my 56E. I have it hooked up with a fresh Mach3 install , after setting  output 1 on pin one , i can send the pokeys pin high or low with the vb script activate signal(output1) command. But when I set the io to mach3 IO pin 1 from the config drop down , nothing happens. VB can detect the device with the GetIODevName command.  The GetIODev Input and Output commands seem to work , return true  , but nothing happens to the Pokeys 56E pin. Of coursed tried this with many pins , command combos. How do I 'activate the IO pins ?  ALSO. Great package, keep it up.

I have a POKEYS 55 board. I had it working on a pc in the house with Mach3 on it. I went to put it on the PC that is on the cnc machine yesterday and noticed there was a new plug in for mach3. I installed that and it is so easy now to configure compared to the old software except I cant get it to work. My Mach is version 3.042.040 not the latest but didn't want to updated in case I lost some settings, the firmware in the pokeys 55 has been updated to the latest which seems to be 2.1.21 and the software is 3.0.30. The board works if I just use the software but I must have done something wrong with the Mach3 plug in.

Thanks
Geoff

Yes I do. I have tried different computers, fresh installs,and every trick I have learned in 20 years of cnc work.  Have license. also notice that the analog does not work either, I have ordered a second board , is there any REAL examples like a .set and vb script  that someone can say THIS WORKS.
