Have you contacted the seller about your problem?
Are you using a licensed version of MACH?
Have a good read of the Mach manuals and also watch the Mach vidoes.

Hi,

Have a look to see the parallel port is enabled in XP, and that the parallel port address in XP is the same as in Mach3, Config Menu - Ports & Pins - Port Setup (you would usually be using Port 1). See here
