Mach3 not responding after closing wizard
« on: November 02, 2012, 03:43:51 AM »
Hi everyone,

I've a problem regarding all wizards in M3. Closing the wizard to post the g-code generated and return to the normal screen stalls M3 for a short moment. M3 is simply "not responding" using the windows term. It's about 1-2 seconds and in that timespan the carge-pump signal is not send and my machine-control goes to e-stop.
I'm running Win7 with nothing but M3 installed, no lan or wlan. The controller is attached via LPT. Drivertest runs perfectly.
I think it might happen on opening the wizard-generated file after closing the wizard, but opening a g-code-file from the normal screen works without problems. Running small or large g-code is working without problems.

Maybe someone encountered this problem and could give me a tip?

Thanks
Michael

Its probably the time taken to write the actual code tied in with the redrawing of your screen.
You could try turning off any screen control options you have on General Config page to see if it helps.

Turn OFF the watchdog in gen config.
