windows 10 pro and mach3
« on: December 09, 2017, 10:15:37 AM »
After  searching this forum over and over I haven't found the definite answer.
I am thinking about upgrading my PC to a new one running windows 10
I am using a ESS and running fine on 64 bit windows 
what kind of luck running windows 10 PRO with mach3  with an  ESS
I have seen that it should work, but I wound love to hear from someone who has used windows 10 with an ESS 64 bit ETC.
Thanks in advance

Hello Harry;

I have Win 10 Pro 64 bit/ ESS/ Mach 3 with a fairly low spec'd. computer.

It all works fine.

One thing to watch is automatic upgrades/ updates.  Turn this off, or better yet, keep your Mach3 computer off of the 'net.

Thanks
It looks like I am going to do the upgrade on my pc
I plan on one of the dell mini
It is very small and easy to put in a cabinet
Again thanks for your response
Harry

If you were already running a 64 bit OS, then you shouldn't see any difference with Windows 10. The only thing is that you might want to defer updates. so it doesn't update while running a program.
