Initial Setup - No movement please help!
« on: January 02, 2020, 12:44:03 PM »
Hi everyone,

Trying to setup a cnc router purchased from ebay to work on vista 32 bit.

I have run the vista reg fix and also changed the parallel port to EPP mode but out of ideas on what else is preventing me from getting going.

Have no movement and Mach3 doesn't seem to be communicating with the machine.

The driver test ran perfectly first time and said complete (the first post in this section says it should warn to restart it never did) I restarted the pc after the driver test anyway just to be on the safe side and now drivertest is stating its pulsing to fast.

Please help really stuck! Many thanks :)
