Mach3 Wizard not working, Input disabled
« on: June 29, 2015, 07:38:53 AM »
Hi, I installed Mach3Version3.043.066.exe (Demo Version from http://www.machsupport.com/) on a clean Windows XP SP3 on Asus L3500H 2.45GHz 512MB,
and configured
Units MM, Sherline, Parallel 3 Axis TB6560, Motor Speeds, which works good from [tab] Jog Controls and can run the Shapes example after I added a G20 command.

Now I wanted to try the Wizards, but if I open a Wizard (like circle), the input fields are kind of disabled:
I may click on an input that turn grayisch and enter a value, but if I klick on another input field, the value disappears and the former default value reappears.

What am I doing wrong ? Will the Wizards not work on Demo Version ? Some idiocratic operating procedure ?

By the way: I was not able to register to this forum using Internet Explorer, as the turning icons do not work. I needed access to another computer running Chrome. Do you really need THREE captchas ?

In all Mach3 screens you must type the <enter> key to complete any DRO input. If you simply enter values and then click another DRO the value will return to its original number.

There are many wizards in the Mach3 install kit. Only the Newfangled Suite are supported, the rest are user contributed and unsupported.

The  unsupported wizards should run in the demo mode, they have no license code in them. The Newfangled suite will run and show you the code, but will not save the gcode when you return to mach3

I do not know anything about how this forum is managed, or what systems it runs on- I use Firefox without trouble.

Press Enter, that's it, thank you, I was able to cut a circle.
