« on: November 12, 2012, 04:48:17 AM »
Hello,not long time ago i did purchase the license for Mach3,Lazycam and Add Ons.
Before, i was using the demo version and everything was working correctly. Now when Mach3 runs the Gcode after few thowsands lines the PC is frozen. All the specification of PC is correct ; 32-bit version of  Windows XP,
1Ghz CPU
512MB RAM Video Card with 32MB RAM
What should i do?
With regards

In the Diagnostics page try turning off Toolpath (bottom left). This reduces the load Mach3 has to handle and should solve your problem.

Do you get an error message in the status line when the system freezes ??

(I regularly run programs with in excess of 360,000 lines of code without any problems so I suspect your problem is related to your PC rather than Mach3).

Sorry, it's not much help really but my best advise would be to try a different PC with more RAM pref. >1GB (again with separate video card) or perhaps add more RAM to your existing setup.

Post the line that is causing the freeze up.  Perhaps it's not coded properly.

thank you guys for your participation.
I think that i solved the problem with "PC sticking" by rolling back the version of Mach 3 and format the PC , but a new problem is appear, my machine receiving the image in mirrow.
