When is the Windows 10 Mach3 parallel port driver?
« on: September 25, 2019, 06:03:53 AM »
I formatted the computer.
I installed Windows 10 64 bit.
I installed VMware virtual Windows 7 32 bit and introduced the ports.
That's how I ran the Mach3 software.  :-X

There is differing opinion on this…

I have been unable to successfully run Mach3 using the Parallel Port on a Win10, 64 bit PC (irrespective of any Win7, 32 bit emulation) so my conclusion was that it cannot be done.

Others disagree.

I stand to be corrected but to my knowledge no one has even proved that Mach3 can be used with the Parallel Port on a true 64 bit PC even if a 32 bit Win7 (or earlier) OS has been installed, so you may be the trail blazer.
