Hi every one

just wanting to know if you can download mach3 to flash drive then load file in to older xp computer.
the reason is i do not have anything but internet from cell phone and the old computer has only dial up modem in it.

So do I.

I don't let my shop PC anywhere near the internet!

Always transfer files (except for small edits) from the home PC to the shop PC.

Several reasons:
Keeps a backup copy of the file in case the shop OR home PC goes belly-up + one file on the flash drive.
Not bombarded with the wireless (unless you have your shop wired for the internet) going and coming.
Although viruses can be transferred via a flash drive, not being connected to the internet gives another layer of protection.
