Mach 3 Download
« on: September 04, 2013, 08:23:12 AM »
I have recently had an error message whilst running my Mach 3 Software bought in 2007.
After much discussion it has been suggested that I reload Mach 3.
The machine is in workshop without internet access and runs on Windows XP which has been fine for many years.

My office PC with internet connection runs on Windows 7, so the plan was to download the latest levei to a CD and then install in the workshop.

When I try to download, it fails for some reason. The 26 kb file downloads and then it stops.

Any suggestions or tip appreciated.

The plan is to load onto the workshop machine and the add the old xml file and license file.

Are you meaning it just stops after 26KB as Mach itself is nearly 26 Meg?
Are you trying to download right to a CD?
 I have just tried and its downloading fine for me.

Thanks for your interest.
My sequence of events is :-

1. Go to Mach support web site and download "Mach 3 Version 3.043.066
2. Save to CD location on PC
3. Run.
4. Norton Software ask " Do you want to allow changes to computer - YES
5. The exe file copies to CD but when that is RUN I get "Could not start set up "
6. Box appears "Launch Error Box"

Further clarification.
Yes it stops after downloading the smaller file approx. 26KB
Yes it is to a CD

Does the download run on the computer you have downloaded it to (before copying to CD)

No - I have just tried to download direct to the PC and its the same - Launcher error. I wonder if its the anti virus software stopping it. A security check runs and I then OK it so it would not appear so.

I have just completed the download to a CD on a friend's PC with no problem. Still unsure what gave the problem on mine.
I can now try the reload in an attempt to fix the original concern.
