Oh yuck, VISTA? In this latest version we switched to VS2012 for the development tools, and Im pretty sure it doesn't support Vista. I will have to ask Brian about this one, see if he has any good ideas.

Hi,
Same here, Mach4 o.k. on my laptop running Vista, but Mill Wizard crashes. It opens the first page ok, select (E.G.) Circular Hole Pattern, click O.K., then windows stops the program on the third page. When I close the program using the displayed dialog box, the message "DEP has closed NFS_Mill.exe" appears on the Task Bar.
Also I'm running it and Mach4 as Administrator.

Nick.

Is this happening when you select any operation? also is this on 32 bit? The order things happen in the OS change a little 64 vs 32 bit. Sort of hard for us to test 32bit as the new compilers don't even support 32 bit machines! They are not making it easy to work with the older OS's. Thank you Microsoft!

Yes any operation, they all crash on the " Select a New Tool" page.
Running a 32 bit OS.

The latest update of the wizard in now on the machsupport.com web site. It shows a V2.0.5, but the Help screen shows V2.04x. That is the same, just a mistake in updating the version number.
