Installation Problems
« on: February 15, 2006, 01:33:23 PM »
Hello,

I have downloaded the Mach3 and intend to get the liscense and use it on both my Taig MicroMill and a CNC Lathe by the same manufacturer.

I have installed the software and run the installation checks and all is well there, but when I open the software and press the Reset button I get a "Limit Switch Triggered" message and a need to Reset again.

I am running on a compaq nw8000 mobile workstation - XP Pro - with firewalls and anti-virius but no printer in the parallel port.

Also when I exit out of the program the window  min/max feature is extremely slow until I reboot.

Any suggestions?

Thanks, and this looks to be a great board, I hope I can contribute to solutions in the future. My expertise is more in the Pro-E CAD side... I am obviously new to the CAM end of things after the .tap file is generated.

Hey Guys,

I have solved the limit switch problem .....   Thanks anyway.   But the slow reaction to max/min still seems to be a problem.  Any suggestions.

This is starting to look like a one sided conversation so I will end it.  I found the slow min/max problem as well.  I have a firewall that was the culprit. once I turned it off the problem was solved.

I am sure I will have other problems as I go forward but I will try more diligently to solve them myself first.  It is probably that the screen is so much more intimidating than the simple DOS version of MP2000 that I have been using as the Mill Controller.

Thanks anyway and if there are any other MicroMill users out there I would love to hear from you.
