Modbus setup data storage, where is it?
« on: October 25, 2021, 07:53:53 AM »
Running a legacy Mach3 configuration (R3.043.066)

Started thru the process of installing a new mill.  Thought I would just copy over the .xml file, give it a new name and do the new port/pin configuration stuff to match the new machine.  SUPRISE!  None of my carefully crafted Modbus stuff came thru in the new version.  Did some roto-rooter digging into the .xml file, found that none of the Modbus detail info is stored in there.

Where (what additional files) store the Modbus detail info?  How do those files get linked in with Mach3 when it lights off.

(It doesn't help that I did a less than perfect job of documenting the Modbus setup when I did it originally so now I would like to go dig that out.  Late correction of old sins.)

Advice needed.
