Ok paste this xml into your Mach folder and use the loader to open Mach with it.

Hood-

That cured the running bad, and the freezing when it starts up.   I am going to leave the IPM set low until I get a few jobs finished.  After that I will try it back at 200 IPM and see what happens.

Did you see anything in my XML file that might keep the port 2 LPT address from saving?

I can deal with it if you cant find anything.



Thanks for fixing the freezing problems

Dont see any problems with the xml as the address is sticking so not sure why you always have to re-enter :(

Do you think it could be a hardware issue?

It could be but if software I am thinking it more likely that it is windows side of things rather than the Mach driver. Maybe check there are no printers set up to use that port in windows.

Not sure if this helps but I am having the exact same issue with my system running XP.  The computer sees the port configured but Mach3 will not save it.  I can change the address in Mach3 and then back again and it works until I reboot the PC.
I now enough about computers to be dangerous.  Could it be related to how XP handles IRQ or DMA settings.  I have never seen this discussed in the forums.

I had similar problem with Mach not saving the pp address. Was when i just got the new computer.
 If i recall, been a few years,   i uninstalled the card and reinstalled it and had to do that maybe 2 times before Mach finaly saved the address.
 
FWIW,

Rich,
Seems the consensus to remove and re-install.  I'll give that a shot and see if it works.
Thanks !
