So I guess that with a good XP Pro SP3 Dell box (off line) running Mach3 .062 and an ESS for production work, changing to Mach4  right now might not be a good move?

The latest version(2686) seems to have fixed Mach4 license issue on my XP machine. But still having a license problem with the Darwin plugin. Not sure about any other plugins.

I have Mach4 2686 running and successfully licensed on my Win7 32 bit office computer.

I have wondered whether there would be any benefit in moving to 64 bit operation, so have installed Win8.1 64 bit on a second drive on the same machine. I wanted to see if Mach4 still ran successfully so installed it on the 64 bit OS.

To my surprise, the PC Id was totally different to that for the 32 bit OS, despite it being on the same machine, so my existing Mach4 licence was invalid. Is this the intended behaviour, or should the Id be machine specific and therefore the same for both OS?

I hope that with all the licensing issues of late Artsoft do not unduly limit the number of inactive licences we can have.

M4 does not need 64 bit, 32 is all it needs built to 32 bit, Roger whate to the next update from the ESS side it`s god know`s when, but the ESS will work ok now only ok, you can try the winxp box there are a few dependency need for it to work.

I went from WIN 10 back to WIN 8.1 and Mach 4 kept the same license key. This of course assumes that your Mach 4 folder isn't erased when changing OSes.
