I'm not sure but I think that they aren't compatible just because mach3 doesn't support PCI I/O cards and works with the parallel port ...

WinCNC is doing the same job as Mach3 ... The old Ford Chevy thing...

I guess I am a little slow on the uptake here.  Are we saying, winCNC and MAch 3 are not compatable like you would not pug a Chevy starter on a Ford Engine. . . or are we saying picking one is a matter of preference and either with work.  I would really like to help a friend relplace his wincnc system
