If the DROs dont move when you jog then either your jog keys are not set up or you have Jog Control switched off or you do not actually have the axis enabled or set correctly in Ports and Pins.
If you attach your xml I will have a look.

Look lower right when in Mach to see the name of the profile you are using. Look in the main Mach3 folder for a file with that name and a xml file extension. Copy it to your desktop and then rename it javier101.xml then use the additional options button on the reply page to attach the file.

Your xml looks fine and the DROs are working fine when I jog via the keyboard or Tab page  so not sure why they would not be working for you.

Ah ok, is it 64bit ? If so then yes it doesnt work on that. If using a 64bit OS you will need to use an external controller such as the Smoothstepper.

Should be working fine then if the xml you sent is the one you are using.
Have a look on the diagnostics page and see what the Time in Int and the Frequency are.
