Mach3 only loading half the program
« on: December 11, 2018, 06:43:37 AM »
I have been trying to load a program I created in Bobcad and have on a USB stick.I have run a few programs through this process and had no problem. Now I am trying to load a longer program and only half of it loads into Mach3. I’m not sure why.

 I bought the control complete with computer and Mach3 installed a while back. It came with a disk with the license and plugins on it.  I was having trouble setting up Mach when I retrofitted my machine. So at one point I ended up reloading the recommended version of Mach3 that I read on Warp9’s website. I have had it working for a while now and haven’t had too many real problems with it, although I have only made a few parts with it.

 Anyway, when I reloaded Mach, does Mach automatically pick up my license and plugins? Or do I have to run the disk now? Or did I do it wrong in the first place? And could this be my issue of not being able to load a longer program? I only ask because I just read on the Mach site that if you are running an unlicensed version that there is a line limit .  And possibly, since I downloaded the recommended version, Maybe my license is not automatically recognized now?

Does it show your name in the 'Licensed to:' box ?

Well, I found the license to: box and it says it’s the demo. So that explains that.
Can I validate it with my license? Or do I have to start from scratch and reload Mach 3 and
Go through all the settings again?

the only Thing you Need is a valid Mach1Lic.dat file in your Mach3 Folder.
anything is possible, just try it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.
