Art had said the simulator plugin sometimes causes problems with Darwin .....you could try removing that

After reading the 74 page print port thread, a lot of issues were solved by starting from scratch and making sure the loads go correctly
..........so I have uninstall and deleted everything I can find, I have licenses for this machine, and am not going to re-install M3  Hopefully I will be running when done, If not screens you shall see.........

Thanks

BAR,

Just a thought, every time I make a configuration change in Darwin or M4, when I enable, then try to jog, I get the DROs to change but no motor movement.  I have to click reset then enable again.  Now motors will move.  This appears to be a bug that has existed for a long time.

Hope this helps you.

Peter

quite often you need to restart M4 for the changes to stick other wise you will have to do above but that may not make the changes stick so your better off restarting M4

daniellyall,

I don't have to make any changes, just enter the config, exit, then enable.  No motion the first time, then reset, and re enable and motion is back.  I've reported this numerous times so I guess it's just lower down on the list as it is not a fatal error.

Well I ve backed up a little.
I uninstalled and deleted all , and now when i install Darwin, and load M4 the machine hangs hard, with power off the only way to get it back.
The version i had installed before was 2313 the new one is 2336.  The Darwin is the same version.

yes that is a bug some people get when you enter info in the config or just go into the config you have to reset and re enable to get thing`s working again.

barr553 you may need to go into c/ drivers and remove the Darwin driver when you remove everything quite often it gets left behind when you remove everything and when you re install everything back in it can make it go silly.

also only have Darwin as a driver in your plugin folder sim can make Darwin not work at all.

there is a newer version of Darwin you will have to ask art for it

Deleted Sim, and Darwin
M4 loads
Installed Darwin, attempted to load M4 got Unhandled exception error?
I'm wearing out the power switch rebooting so many times..........
May be time to sleep on it.

Thanks for the suggestions

you need to restart the computer in between loading M4 and Darwin then when you select Darwin as the driver restart M4 then do the settings in darwin restart computer do the settings in M4 then restart M4 then it should be all good just remove sim after you first load M4 before restart and remove M3, M4, M5 macros from macro folder.

other than that it should work unless the address for the pp is wrong most times it`s 0x328
