Mach3 driver not install correctly on W7 32 bit.
« on: April 29, 2018, 02:37:31 PM »
Hi guys!
Now i'm having problem installing correctly Mach on Windows7 32 bit.
On system info , the driver shows with a question mark and this means " not intalled correctly".
I've change combatibyties on Win XP SP2, nothing but the same.
I cannot make my cnc run! Use parrallel port.
How can i solve this?
Any help will be really appreciated
Thanks
Vasili

Hi,
a couple of days ago you were asking about a Chinese USB board, now your talking about a parallel port?

Which one are you trying to get to go?. You cant have both running at the same time.

Hi,
have you read the Mach3 Install Manual? In particular:

Quote
2.1.3 The Vital Reboot
You must reboot Windows before running Mach3. This reboot is vital. If you do not do it, you will get
into great difficulties which can only be overcome by using the Windows Control Panel to uninstall the
driver manually. So please reboot now.
If you are interested in knowing why the reboot is required, then read on. If not, you can skip to Sec

Hi
I did reboot at the end of the installation, but the question mark remains.....

Hi,
the reboot is required and its not actually at the end. Re-read the Installation Manual. You'll now have to dig the corrupt driver out manually.

I seem to recall a message here last week that the latest Windows7 update causes the parallel port to not work with Mach3.
