And many folks recommend an earlier version of Mach3 than 066. It can be a bit buggy for some.

Hi John,

By popular opinion version .062 is the one.

dear friend ... yesterday i purchased the mach3 and installed it today... dont know the earlier versions didnt get installed in my computer (win 10) ... so i did the 66 version...
the problem that i had mentioned the machines coordinate completely gets changed happens again.... i generated the gcode in fusion 360 again... and this time ,on the beginning it happens... when as the gcode says the machine first did the four sides of the rectangular of the machining area... then it started doing it... and suddenly i noticed it has completely moved like 30mm to the right on the X axis....
i dont know why this happens... but i saw in the visual area like last time that the toolpath was moved out of the rectangular area which it should have been... better to say mach3 decides to change the coordinate suddenly and do the rest of the machining in another side of the X axis .... sometimes to the right ,sometimes to the left... (on the long 3d gcodes it definitely happens)... so just soon or late in middle of the program...
i dont know why its happenning to me ,...please help me! i am going to upload the xml file of my profile...please help me ! thank you

Are you certain that you installed it correctly ? That XML shows as DEMO, no license installed.
Also, can you post the program file ?

let me do a restart ,and save the profile again! i am sure i have installed it correctly because it says on the top bar that its licensed to me
i am uploading the xml file again ,after restarting the system and saving setting again... let me know if this time works?

That is basically a blank xml.
