I posted a similar note a few days ago and had not replies at all. As I have just done what you are asking I can help you.

The easiest way to copy your Mach3 complete with settings and licence onto another machine is to copy the entire Mach3 folder in the old computer and paste it into the new one. Do not make a new folder as you want the old folder with its files copied into C: root directory. You will find it exactly as you have it on the old computer. I had mine with lathe and Mill set up. You may need to add the shortcuts to programs. I found all my old settings there in Mach 3 mill and lathe.

The best way is to do a fresh install of Mach3 on the new machine first, run the tests to ensure it is running correctly if using parallel port.

Next you copy the old Mach3 folder and just paste over the new install, replace your desktop shortcuts and that is usually all thats needed for a parallel port setup.
