I noticed the non self install difference and I've downloaded the latest Mach 3 just to make sure I was on the right version and it did say mach 4 in the window. I'll erase everything and try again. There is a possibility that due to trying to self install it damaged the file somehow. Be right back.

Ok. I've done a fresh install of everything. I found the smooth stepper plug in was still installed even after going to control panel and saying de install mach 3. When I tried to do it manually it appears even though admins had full control and I was signed in as an admin vista thought I didn't have permission to delete anything in the mach 3 folder so looked as if it had but didn't delete anything. Anyway changed the owner to me and ensured every thing gone. Reinstalled Mach 3 version R2.63 and downloaded Xbox360 plug in. Hmmmm no change as mach 3 boots up the pop up is titled mach 4 and the message is
"plug in DLL defective. Reload" I clicked OK and the next message was (again titled Mach 4) Xbox360controller.dll-defective plug in found...ignoring" then Mach 3 continues to load up but without the plug in.

Hi,

I have just been advised by Artsoft that there is a problem with the download.  I am trying to figure out happened to the file and will let you know as soon as I have an answer. Hopefully, that will be tomorrow.

Ah. It's always good to know that it wasn't my fault......then again it may still be my fault, just not totally. :) I'll keep my eyes on the thread and give it another go when appropriate.
thanks

Lee, I haven't had a look at the plug-in yet but just wanted to say thanks. Another great gift from one of our fine members. I must say it is really nice to have a lot of great people here.

Hello,

i bought a controller this week, install the new driver (running ok in control panel), the new plugin 2.0, and configure Mach3 but when i start Mach 3 (Version R3.041 registered), i receive an
error that say that controller batterie are empty. But control panel of the XBOX 360 controller say that the batterie are full.

I changed also the batterie with 2 news bat.

Any idea ?

Not knowing anything about the Xbox 360, is there any other hardware needed if I get a wireless Xbox 360 controller? Looking at the web sites, the Xbox 360 has wireless built into it, what do we need on the PC to use a wireless controller?

Hello,

you need the Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows, that is sell with a controller, near the 50€.
It is also sell alone without Joypad for 20$.

http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hardware/x/xbox360wirelessgamingreceiver/

Does anybody have an idea for the batterie message. I cannot use the xbox pad actually.

hello fab. I haven't got one of these nor do I know much about them. Does the battery warning come up as soon as you put new batteries in it? or does it wait a while? If it does wait a bit it may be caused by either a fault in the device draining the battery or (quite common with radio controlled gear) it can't make a connection with the Base unit..IE it continually scans even when you think it's not on. Like I said I thought it was worth a mention for a shot in the dark type thing. Can you borrow someone else's controller and see if this does the same?

Hello,

the message are directly in Mach3 after the start of the program. This Pad run well under Windows (only in the property control panel). I have nothing else to test on this PC.

Strange ! I will test it on an other PC.
