But there is no "problem line" - the code has been running perfectly for some time now, this is a totally random bug.

Sigh. I Know.
It sometimes seems that those macros can get corrupted. Dunno how. Does Mach3 rewrite them? Dunno.

I would reboot the PC, restart Mach3, and then explore the M6End macro with the VB Script Editor. Costs nothing to do this, and might be productive.

Cheers

It seems saving them as .mcc is a fix but it only passes the failure on to the next .m1s macro.

I now have M3, M6start, M6end as .mcc versions, I think I will do M5 etc just in case it faults when it should be stopping the spindle....

Next time it fails I will try stepping through whatever one it fails on.

Really???
That does NOT sound like a macro problem to me. That sounds like a bug in Mach3 or possibly in the XML file.
Since Mach3 normally runs OK, I would think about the XML file. We do know it can get corrupted.

Yes, I have seen that error msg a few times, but I think it was usually due to a bug in a new macro I was developing. I was normally able to get rid of it by tidying up the macro code.

From what I've read over the years, it seems that some people run into this all the time, and most never see it.
Of course, that doesn't help at all.

One thing about version 3.043.022 mentioned earlier. It has a serious bug that can cause Mach3 to hang on M6's, depending on the contents of the M6Start macro.
While testing when I first found it, I could get it to freeze when the M6Start had just one line of code. It definitely doesn't work with the M6Start in the 2010 Screenset.

Um. That kills .022 for me!

And that there stops any thoughts of using 022 for me too - I have a fair bit in M6 and I use the 2010 screen set.

There is nothing worse than a random bug, there is no pattern to it, most of the time it will run all day then others it will fail after a few hours and others like yesterday it will fail upon first run.

I'm very limited in what software I can run due to using a CS-Labs controller.

At what stage does the CS-Labs controller become a serious limit to what you can do?

Limited support for software - you can't use stuff like UCCNC on etc

What about CS Labs new software?
