Help needed with Mach 3 Driver
« on: March 08, 2014, 05:59:49 PM »
I can not get the driver to install in the mach 3 demo mode.  Is this normal?  Do you need a license to test your machine?

Are you using a 64bit OS? If so, you need a 32bit OS to run the Mach3 parallel port driver.

No. THe only way to use Mach3 with a 64bit OS is to use an external motion controller, like a Smoothstepper or a UC100.
