Tom:

   The only way I can think off is to set it up on another machine and then copy the profile.ini to your machine..
Sounds liek a rough way to go..

Art,

I installed M4 V1.2192 and it played nicely with Darwin V1.2178.  When I installed M4 V1.2214, things broke.  I couldn't jog and homing only worked on the Z axis, sort of.  I reinstalled M4 V2.2192 but no joy.  I uninstalled everything and reinstalled M4 V2.2192 and Darwin V1.2178 but things are still broken.  Then I noticed that Darwin shows version numbers 1.21 over 1.19, not 1.21. over 1.23.

How do I force Darwin to update?  Is there a version for M4 V1.2214?

Thanks Art.

I uninstalled everything then installed M4 V1.2192 and Darwin V2209 ('manual' install).  Now I get a Darwin -33 license failure.  Do I need a new license?  M4 seems okay.  I did put the Darwin license in the license folder for M4.

When I installed Darwin 2209, it said the versions were still 1.21 over 1.19.  Do I need to go into the system drivers and remove Darwin there before reinstalling?

Hi Pete:

  Yes, remove the system driver, its the 1.19 and should be 1.23.

 Delete any copies of Darwin.sys that reside on your computer ( do a dearch for that file.).
Then reinstall...

Art,

Thanks.  As you can probably surmise from my last post yesterday, deleting the driver was a last minute idea as I was posting.  I verified that it fixed the version problem.  The license issue went away after I used the right license file.  Sheesh.

Everything is back to normal (except me).

Thanks.
