Hi,
you might try the 'Search' function, with it I found this:

http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,6346.0.html

There is, or used to be, a list of things you could do to improve your PC for parallel port operation. I'm sure if you spent some time
searching for it you could find it.

Nothing happens at all! I had to install Win XP to make it run properly! I've seen many pc's running Win7 with no problem and i'm still wondering......why?

Hi,
I ran Mach3 and two parallel ports on Windows7 for three plus years without problems. Did you find a copy of he optimization list....it had about 30-40m items on it?
Anyway you've got XP to work. If you were really concerned you'd ditch the parallel port altogether and get a genuine SmoothStepper or UC300 or 57CNC,
not some Chinese rubbish, then you could use just about any PC and Windows OS you care to name.

Hi Cncman,

Did you remove the offending update (as TPS linked) from your Win7 installation ?

Hi,
I thought the symptom of a Windows7 update was that as soon as you attempted to run the PP driver the PC rebooted. That is different to
what is described by the OP.

Craig, this is my next order! i know these BOB's and their quality. The PC is seeing the PP as well, but Mach3 cannot communicate with BOB! I tried EVERYTHING whith no luck at all! XP was the solution!
Tweaky, yes i did and nothing happens at all! I think Ordering from here and after is to order good BOBs and not cheap!
Thank you guys for your help indeed!
