Thought I would try a USB Bob from eBay to try see if Mach3 would run from notebook/tablets I have available, today it arrived with pirated software and a plugin that has corupted an old desktop system when loaded into Mach3 fresh demo install, software piracy reported to eBay and return started for item as unfit for purpose malware on disk plugin crashes Mach3 straight away Artsoftcodes9991, company is mentioned already should have checked hall of shame before ordering "FASTERCNC CO, LTD." and the ebay seller  User ID maxonix2014 otherwise claiming in instructions to pirate software to be Zhouxiao, Unit 73 Interlink Way West, Bardon Business Park, Bardon, Leicestershire, LE67 1LD,  with a chinese phone number +86-13926575825. Will let you know result, meanwhile another PC to reformat and clean, I will take copy of fake Mach licence before I return item although I am sure you already have copy, if not and you want it forwarding let me know.

Hi Lucan07,

Thank you for sharing the details of the pirate license peddler and the problems caused from installing the bad software.

The fake license is of no interest so best to just delete it.

Good rule to live by - if you see a cheap Chinese board on EBay that says it comes with a Mach3 license assume it is a pirated copy.
Happy machining , Jeff Birt

Doesn't say anything about Mach Licence on ebay they just include it on CD with plugin needed to use the USB board instructions included to use fake licence. I already have licence so not interested but someone spends time programming software unless its rubbish they deserve to be paid. All I installed was the plugin to a demo set up of Mach3 that corrupted everything.

JAMEN Technology is another manufacturer / vendor who can be added to our list.
The Mach3 Setup software, supplied with their JNC-40M motion controller, automatically installs a well known Pirate License.
The JNC-40M motion controller (and it’s setup software) is supplied with a number of different machines including the SKYFIRE SVM-1.
