If you have the menus at the top go to View then Load Screens and if the Mach3 folder does not automatically open browse to it. Choose the 1024.set and see if that helps.

Hood,
dashed home at lunch and tried what you suggested, there was no *set files in the Mach 3 folder, I reloaded Mach 3 from disc and it opened up alright, will it have kept all thee settings, I didn't have time to test it.
I will have to run it tonight to check it out.
Does this sort of think just happen?  should I keep a backup of the *set files somewhere else on the machine in case?
thanks for the steer.

Doesnt normally happen unless your computer is playing up.
You should still have all your settings as they are stored in an xml file which should not get overwritten with an upgrade.

Runs fine, I did take the PC to bits and had a cooling fan full of fluff, mills running behind me as I type, thanks for your help
 I will keep my eyes out for a replacement PC as I think this one is at the end of its life.
Regards.

Hi!
I'm using mach3 Version R3.043.062 and it is licensed to PAPA FABIO, my problem is when I  load any program which have more then 500 lines, on Cycle Start it suddenly stops when 500 lines are completed and stop executing the rest pf the lines.
Please guide me because guide I am a new user of Mach3.

You are using a pirated licence.

Hi!
Im using Lazycam for engraving text but when I create text in it, It creates it in "double line" and I want to create a single line text. Please suggest any solution for me I have tried writing it in CorelDraw too but still having the same problem when I save it in .dxf.
