From what I have read in the forum, as far back as 2008 it was reported that using a local variable as an input to a brain would cause Mach3 to hang.  Was this problem ever resolved? I am using Demo Version R3.043.066 for my code development and it exhibits the problem.

Thanks.

I could not get a COMPARE block to compare a digital/boolean switch to activate even though I could see the switch input toggle between 1/0 in the Brian viewer.....
     so I set up to inputs , one was the switch input 1/0 and the other as a variable=1  and then tried to compare those two (after a no-operation pass thru)  and yes, my mach3 hung up...and may bot even allow my PC to open that profile without crashing...it think i may have to remove the offending Brain from the folder.....stand by.....

I'm not sure...... I switched my machine to UCCNC, as it had the "electronic gearing" spindle encoding capability I needed for threading.

 I may some day take the old controller that I was using with MACH3 and use it on some other machine.
