« on: March 25, 2016, 01:50:46 PM »
 >:( I have a new pc to run my cnc.  Therefore I needed to download Mach 3 once installed I have the demo mode.     I do have a license......got a zip file from Artsoft that has my license.....I unzipped it and copied all the files into the installation icon on desktop and reinstalled...... and the program still
shows the demo mode.   what am I doing wrong?

You need to copy the MachLic1.dat license file into the Mach folder on the hard drive, that should sort it.

by that you mean to copy all the files from that .dat into the Mach3 folder.
I have done that and restarted the program but to no avail

As Dave has already said but perhaps put another way...

Unzip the file from Artsoft.
Copy the file   Mach1lic.dat
Paste that into your C:\ Mach3 folder.
