The xml you attached worked fine here, the code is correct, it has the the G91.1 in it, as it should, so I do not know were your problem is, unless you attached a different xml from the one you are having issues with.

At this point it's safe to assume you have two different G-code files. One with a G90 command and the other with a G91.1 command. The screen shot clearly shows a G90 yet the xml file you posted has a G91.1 on line#110. If I read your posting correctly... to further compound the problem you are using two different computers running Mach 3. Like Hood I loaded the posted xml file on my machine and it's fine. No circles. I would do a complete clean Mach 3 reinstall on the cnc PC. Use Mach ver 062. Do not use ver .066 it had problems. Sometimes profiles can get corrupted and do strange things. Then only use V-Carve to generate the G-code files. I have Aspire on my windows 7 pro machine and xp machine running my cnc. I transfer files via a stick and never had a problem. I know from experience Aspire and V-Carve will do strange things with a G90 command.

The G90 is totally separate from G91.1.
G90 and G91 are distance mode, ie Abs and Inc distance mode

G90.1 and G91.1 are IJ mode ie Abs and Inc IJ mode.

Mach does not show the IJ mode in the string at the top but it does show the distance mode, think that is where your confusion is arising from.

Yes you are correct. I remembered something after my last posting I ran across quite awhile back before I started using Aspire. I purchased Newfangled Solutions Mill Wizard stand alone program and ran into the same problem with unwanted circles showing up. I believe there is some postings on this in the Mill Wizard section of this forum. Long story short... the program was so problematic and buggy I stopped using it and completely removed it from the pc.
