Optimisation procedure on install of Mach3
« on: April 19, 2006, 07:31:53 PM »
I am doing a clean install of XP on a PC dedicated to my CNC
I am doing the optimisation procedure from the file called "optimisation%20XP"

I have a few questions:
1- I have set " Remote procedure call (RPC)" to automatic as instructed
my question is:
 "Remote procedure call (RPC) Locator" should that be disabled?
( I know nothing about these things, but is seems to me, based on their description, that they should be set the same.

2-  I tried to update windoes as the optimsation file instructed. The windows site said that I should set " Automatic Updates" to Auto and also set "BITS" to manual., I did and then did my updates ( none were required)

my question is:
  Do I leave the two settings as is, or put them back as per the optimisation file?
3-  will I be able to get onto my network? I would only plug in the cat5 cable when I want to get onto my home lan for updates etc.

The text is a guide and not a rule. Follow as much of it as you feel comfortable with. In reality, Mach will run without doing most of it. Its just designed to minimise your computer start up and running.
I have done it in the past and found it had turned off some features that I did need. Currently I am running mach without it.

I think you will find the guide is for people who are reporting problems running mach on a startndard set up.
Let us know how you go and what you find.

With a clean install of XP, you shouldn't eb=ven need to run the optiisation file. As long as Mach3 works OK, there's no need to bother.
