When you uninstall Mach4 it does not remove custom macros. They remain behind in the directory structure where Mach4 was installed. To totally start over you need to delete these macros, or if you are sure you have backup copies of any you need, you can delete the entire Mach4 folder before reinstalling.

Did the problems exist even if you did not re-edit or reinstall your macros? This type of problem usually happens if there is a coding problem with a  macro. Does the problem exist if you do not install any plug-in device driver?

I state that I am using the demo version of mach4, and there is no plug-in connected.at the beginning everything worked but after I had created a new button with a linked macro (seen on youtube by a certain DAZ THE GAS) now if I push the refhallhome button only one axis is reset, then I deleted that button and the macro but the problem remained. I uninstalled and deleted all of mach4 reinstalled but the problem remained

you do realise that mach4 will only run for 4 minutes in demo mode if you have a motion controller connected
