So I am guessing the reason I have boxes across the top of my screen where the drop down menus are supposed to be: file config help etc means the oem copy of mach 3 that came with my chinese 6040 engraver router mill is pirated?  Please confirm and I will purchase license immediately!!!

Thanks,
Ken

Hi Ken,

Welcome to the forum.

When you purchase a Chinese machine it is most unlikely to be supplied with a genuine Mach3 license.

I have no idea why your screen has boxes across the top, it is not a license issue.

Rename your Mach3 folder to Mach3 backup (or something similar).
Download and install a fresh copy of Mach3 http://www.machsupport.com/software/mach3/
Copy the <your profile> .xml file from the backup to your new Mach3 folder.

Mach3 should then work correctly.

I mentioned FASTERCNC.CO.LTD in an earlier post as a peddler of a Mach3 pirate license.
Now it appears that they are also using the name DDREAMCNC.CO.LTD to peddle the same Mach3 fake license.

Is there a way you can check if forum members have a valid licence? Like as part of joining the forum having to disclose your licence no? or something similar? Probably a lot easier said than done, but just a thought

I was one of these who received a fake licence with my Chinese cnc, but you'll be glad to know I purchased a legit licence after tweekie picked up on it

Hi Bucks,

I think we have all thought long and hard about the pirate license situation and new forum members but so far nothing has surfaced as being an easily workable solution.  :'(

Another Chinese enterprise NOVUSUN (or is it a previous business re-branded ??) has it's installation software automatically install their supplied Pirate License.

A couple of screenshots taken from the CHINACNCZONE software installation video (from their website). This is yet another Chinese business peddling a Pirate Mach3 Licence.
