Mach 3 motor tuning dialog screen

Moved my Mach 3 v3.042.040 to another machine since the previous one was getting questionable. Just a normal xp machine installed the software. But didn't install the parallel port driver which I usually do. Since I'm only using a dynomotion kflop decided not to when prompted. Anyway copied in my setup and screens from other machine and everything works. Except nothing displays when I select the config/motor tuning window. This does not really need to be seen now since the values are set. But not sure why it does not come up. No error or anything Any ideas? Other dialogs work fine

Thanks

This comes up from time to time, but I don't remember the exct answer.
Try removing unused plugin files from the mach3 plugins folder, and restart mach3. If that doesn't do it, try re installing Mach3.

I think it is the only time ive ever installed mach wiith out checking the parallel port interface as well.  figured not checking it might in some way lighten the load of what this miachine thinks it has to do, seeing I was using the dynomotion plug in and would not need parallel stuff.    Will try what you said.  Stupid me i didn't bother to search for the answer first.

Thanks ger.
