Ok try this and see.
Go to Ports and Pins and the Spindle Setup. Enable the relays. Then go to OutPuts and Enable Output 1.  You should be able to leave it at port and pin 0 but possibly the ESS will complain. If it does just set it to any port/pin you are not using.
Hopefully that will help.

Bingo!!! You clever man, that's done the trick. I'm sure the setup information tells you to disable the relays but who cares, it works properly now.
Many thanks, that's helped me so much.
Cheers,
Roger

Good chance the instructions may say that but likely they were written for the parallel port, then again having the relays disabled when using the parallel port will not allow the Index to be seen.

Well as long as all is working as you want thats all that matters :)
