Mach 3 totaly crashed.
« on: February 04, 2019, 05:25:23 PM »
Hello!

I have a problem with Mach 3. When I click on the icons to start mach mill or mach lathe all i get is a white screen and the computer locks and has to be rebooted. Where do I start to figure out what's going on? I'm running windoze XP with a parallel port setup.

I would be inclined to make a secure backup of the Mach3 folder (just in case) then re-install Mach3 over the top of the existing installation (sounds like you have lost or overwritten one of the files Mach requires for it's boot operation).

OK buddy! I'm heading out to the garage with a thumb drive right now. Thanks!

Tried to re install but no luck. Then I did an uninstall and a reinstall and that did the trick. Thanks!
