MDI Problems
« on: February 14, 2017, 04:35:01 PM »
I'm not sure what I've done.  My MDI boxes won't work properly.  I put code into them and it puts Mach in a RUN MDI State forever.  It doesn't do any of the code, it just acts like its doing something and won't stop.  Running G Code works fine, just nothing in the MDI.  Any Ideas?  I don't remember what to attach for the profile.  Can someone let me know.

Have you done any customizing? If you have done any customizing you will have to think about what you did and undo it until its sorted. I would likely test with an unedited default profile, screen, modules, macros and all to see if that works right first.
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

That's the thing.  The only thing that I've changed has been in the Mach Config and Modbus.  Other profiles work just fine.  Is there a way to restore previous versions? What little I've changed since yesterday won't matter to me, and it was working yesterday.

I found the "Restore Backup" Button on the Mach4 Loader.  The backup from this morning works great.  Not sure what I did.  The only thing that I really recall doing was try and run the Gcode Execute and MDI Execute from a Macro. 
Either way, if I figure out what it was I'll post it on here.

This is happened to me a few more times yesterday and today.  The only time I know exactly what I changed was Activating Input0 in the Mach config.  It did it twice when I did that.  But the previous times this problem occurred I hadn't messed with Mach Input Configurations at all.  So I'm still confused as to why I keep getting this error.   I am still able to restore the previous backup and be just fine.
