Version confusion
« on: February 17, 2008, 10:58:21 AM »
Hi
Been running Mach 3 for ayear or 2 now, and I love it.

i once in a while update the software with the latest version, just to keep up to date.

just downloaded Mach3Mach3 Dev. Update R3.036  , but  when i press "about mach3 cnc controller" under help it states V R2.60

Is this just a non updated section of the software or am I really running on this version?

It should say 3.036
One thing to check is you are installing to the correct folder. Some of the previous versions of Mach installed to C:\Mach 3 instead of C:\Mach3 (notice the space between the Mach and 3 in the first one)

OK, the folder is named Mach3 without spacing, and during the install I was asked if I wanted to upgrade the version already installed in the folder.
If I check the details in the mach3 folder the mach3 application file is dated sometime back in 2007.

Do I need to reboot the pc after intallation?

No you dont need to reboot unless its the first time you have installed Mach. Doesnt do any harm rebooting and a lot of people prefer to do it but I am not one of them, I am too impatient ;)
 I am presuming Mach wasnt running while you were installing so only thing I can think of is to try the install again.

Youré spot on dude!

Did a reinstall, and mach3 may have been open during the first attempt.

Thanx man
