If you go to the Diagnostics screen do you see a frequency and a Time in Int?

That looks reasonable, one thing however that looks strange is the Port 1 Current state, I would have expected some to be green. Are you sure you have the correct port address selected?

Dont have an answer for you I am afraid, if everything is set correctly and the driver would seem to be loaded and working then it should work.

i found this topic, and downloaded the xml file attached their and in Diagonisitc Tab i got 5 pins Green .

i tried to figure the same pins and dir inside it, but the motor with no action ,

i tried to re-install Xp sp3 again , but no change ...

i use Dell Latitude E5400 laptop  and bought  " legacy Extender " to get parallel port  and it worked before good with Mach3 with previous board .

i will try later with PC and see what the problem ,

it make me angry it works well with kcam till now ...  :( so it's not port problem ...

The diagnostics screen may be a red herring, it is something I usually ignore as no one really knows what they correspond to, however I dont think I have ever seen them all out and that is why I mentioned it.

Can you test direct at the port with a volt meter or a scope to see if you are getting outputs when you jog one way or the other. You should get 0v to 5v when you jog back and forth.
