Introduction and question about Mach3
« on: January 09, 2015, 05:00:23 AM »
Hello I am new to this forum. I am a Mach3 user for some time and have been running it on an XP machine and with my custom made Mill. I am 40 years of age and hobbies are everything which concerns racing ;-) Living in the Netherlands.

Like I said I am using Mach3 for some time now. Great product. Now I have to migrate my Windows environment to Windows 8 because the dependency for other applications I am using is asking me to. I have been installing it on Windows 8 and had it working. But when I restart my PC it says something about the Mach3.sys and wants to restore all the time. Very annoying.

Does someone know what to do?

Thanks in advance!

If it is a 64bit install then  it will not work with the parallel port driver

I thought the parallel port driver won't work on any version of Windows 8?

I remember there is a version(32bit) of Win 8 that works with the LPT. Art discovered it.

Just a thought, (;-) TP
