Hi Art,

Sorry to keep causing problems...
I do appreciate that my computer ID's has changed and I have new licenses for Mach4 and Darwin (they each contain the new ID) however, the issue mentioned in my earlier post still stands.  :'(

Art,

Just to be clear, the stream of MPG messages was happening with no rotation of the encoders.  Also, I am not expecting any motion as a result of the MPGs and I know they are not (intentionally) used by M4 yet.  I also do not expect that enabling them would inhibit axis movement when trying to jog.

Thanks

Peter

Peter:

   Hmm, that would indicate the encoders are counting.. if you look to themin the config..are they counting from noise or anything?

  I have checked and the debug was efaulted to on, I have changed that default to off. Your corect that motion should still
occur, the encoders woudl have no effect on them at all. Im unsure as to why at this point youd have no motion..

Tweaky: SO they gave you a new license and still it doesnt work? Ill contact Brian and ask whats up..

Hi Guys:

  Here is a version that tells you if Mach4 has refused your license file. Until M4 can tell you itself,
Ill leave this code in there so you at least know if your license isnt working. Sorry for all the ups and
downs but I have no control over this type of thing, the code changes faster than I can keep up.

  Make sure your licenses are int he Licenses folder.. and once you start up your bottom status line will have a message
indicating failure if it failed. Please let me know what you see.

The encoder counters were not changing unless I moved the axes.

I will try the new plugin later just in case.

Thanks

Peter
