Did you install as administrator and in the default location? Windows can be very picky about this.

We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.

When you go to save it has to write to a file. If you didn't install and run as administrator windows may be preventing the file being written and causing a crash.  I could be many other things but I usually try the easy ones first.

Thanks Mike for your help, will try this tomorrow its interesting you let me know it was writting to a file! makes more sense now, will let you know how it goes, i was thinking "maybe its to do with my USB Breakout board" as its not a parallel type board!

OMG

I thought MACH3 didnt do windows 10 64 bit?

I swapped PC from windows 7 32 bit to its Big Brother

Windows 10 64 Bit PC

And its working 100%

OH DEAR

I thought they said used Windows 7 32 bit etc etc

I just tuned motors for the first time with my Windows 10 64 bIT PC Using mach 3 and its working 100%


Hope this helps any future users!!!!!
