Mach2 works fine but...
« on: May 12, 2006, 08:38:53 PM »
Mach3 won't with all the same port settings.
It looks like it works but it's not getting to the port  :-\

I'm running..
P4 2.8 gig
XP Home

Any ideas?

I'm not sure the XML for your machine would help me out, as I'm running a home built router table with Geko 201 drives connected to a parellel port on my computer.

I have tried everything.. and Mach3 just wont talk to the port or port(s) for that matter. I used a port monitor and can see Mach2 changing status but Mach3 wont change any of them except if I force all pins high Mach3 will set them all low on startup but that is as much port activity as I can get out of it.

I'm sure it must be something simple that i'm missing in the program  :-\

Oh and this is a purchased copy not the demo version, so that can't be an issue.

No that did the same thing Brian.

I was looking in the XML and it shows all 0's for all the output ports.. Hmmmm.

I'm a fair programmer, with a hint I can play around and find it... But I'm sure others may have the same problem.

I started a new profile with default settings and set up pins, hot keys and port to keep it clean.

Looking at it (the XML).. it looks like all the ports, pins exec.. are set correct.
