Plugin DLL Defective - Mach3
« on: December 11, 2020, 06:03:53 PM »
Hi,
I'm getting a weird error and hoping someone can help.  I just re-did my Win10 install and now I can't see motor tuning and get Plugin DLL Defective and my X-Box controller wont work.  I re-downloaded the X-Box controller and deleted the old one but it did not help.

Thanks in advance,
Dan

Hi,
Mach3 and a SmoothStepper.

Last night I lost all the other plugins. So I reinstalled Mach3 after uninstalling it through Win10.

I created profiles during the install as recommended. But, all the plugins failed anyway.

I redid Win10 because I got malware. I've run malwarebytes and Windows scans multiple times and they say it's gone. I'm a bit worried it's not gone.

But, maybe another fresh Mach3 install will do it?

Thank you,
Dan

First of all, computer that is running CNC machine SHOULD NOT be connected ti Internet.
It might be connected to LAN, with only a couple folders, non critical ones, shared, so if any gremlin sneaks in will be safely contained :)
Second, when you have a working system, no further updates should be allowed (M$ is known to destroy a good working system).

My computer that is connected to CNC machine is a pure controller and nothing more than that. No unnecessary software, besides Notepad++ and some more utilities. No M$#&% Office or other bloatware. It even runs Win XP :D

HDD image of working partition safely stored on 2 external drives.
Make no mistake between my personality and my attitude.
My personality is who I am.
My attitude depends on who you are.
