XP and Mach4 error
« on: August 16, 2016, 08:08:01 AM »
Just installed Mach4 on my Chirons computer.
It is running XP.
I get this error message (see pic) when I try and Start Mach4, anyone have any ideas how to solve?

Oh well, not quite fixed, when I close Mach4 the Mach4GUI.exe doesn't close and I need to stop it via the processes.
Any ideas on that one?

Well it seems to be the lathe profiles only. Both the standard and my modified ones do it but the two mill ones and the router one have no problem, when I exit them the Mach4GUI.exe also exits.
Onl;y thing I can think of at the moment is the Lathe profiles have the MachMotion canned cycles lua page, so maybe it is that?
