Hi just to say I tried the previous version you put on site on June 21, 2018 and this seems to allow Mach4 to load OK and some aspects function but not useable
cheers

Hello, I'm in the same wave with the WHB04B. Since my update to MACH4, I lost this little wonder :-(

Recent versions of Mach4 do not start with the driver offered by cd_edwards :-(

I don't know if the subject is dead or just on the ice but I would like to know if there is any other development on this subject, if not I would like to help to finish the development of this pilot.

I started to look to make a little prg in VB to intercept the HID of WHB04B but by reading this discussion I think that there is already enough to start and maybe I could help this development at the link to start again to zero :-)

(Sorry for my English, it's not my first language) :o

about the crash of Mach4 with pluggin WHB04B, I have the impression that this is due to a missing dependency (framework or ??)

I tried to validate with a debugger but Mach4 detect my debugger and refuses to continue. It stops just before loading the plugging :-(

And the error in EventViewer gives this:
Faulting application name: Mach4GUI.exe, version: 4.2.0.4498, timestamp: 0x5ebe36eb
Faulting module name: Mach4Core.dll, version: 4.2.0.4498, timestamp: 0x5ebe360f

I would like to confirm with you about the required dependencies?

UPDATE:
For some reason that I don't know, I opened Mach4 with the 2018-06 driver and activate the driver in mach4 (the WHB04 does not work with this driver, nothing in the diagnostic box)
Then not later I put the driver 1.0.19 and Mach4 opened, I have the ESTOP, STOP and PLAY keys working. I believe that Macros also work but not test. JOG does not work.

But it's already a good start.

I also loader the Shaeto / xhc4mach project on GitHub. VisualStudio, it lacks references so that I can use it, but I haven't put time on it yet.

^^ This worked for me.

on first installation of the latest version of the plugin Mach4 would just crash on launch, no error message was shown. so I installed the first version and Mach4 would now launch, I then enabled the plugin and closed Mach4 , installed the latest version and it all works fine.

Ok guys, starting with build 4688, I have included a plugin that will handle the WHB04B-4 and WHB04B-6 XHC MPGs.  It will eventually support the older WHB04 but I haven't gotten one in yet to test with.

To be clear, it supports the MPGs that look like this:

Must have missed it but where exactly can we find said plugin?

Cheers,
Hans

Ah I see it is included in the main application now. Sweet, that should make a lot of people happy.

Will give it a whirl tomorrow, after 2 years mucking about with makeshift machines I finally got myself a Sorotec Compact Line machine and it is nearly done.
