Reinstall Mach3 and besure that you don't uncheck any boxes on install. there is a box that says to install the driver and you have to have that. we have your XML putting out steps so it has to be something like that.

Ok...

Wiil do a reinstall  ;D

Sorry about the loss of the server for a few moments, I was changing bios setting on the port to see if that may be the bug, but watching the activity after the changes it looks like Mach2 and 3 use the same engine  ;D

See I'm learning fast ;D

Thanks!

I will post the results  :-*

Ha.. That worked  ;D

But it may also be that the offline button flashing green (me thinking it's online) could be the problem  :-\

You need to make the text on that button say "On Line" and flash green when it's online and "Off Line" flashing red when off line.

Anyway... Thanks for the help and here is to many broken bits in the furtue  ;D

i am having the same issue..  i read this thread over a few times repeating this solution with no luck...  i am considering buying the mach3 release so i can finally put my machine to use.  it is a 5'x8'x14" router i built from scratch.

so far i have been running the old mach2 free release just to get my machine running.  its running great!!!  servo motors and geckos, computer is a p4 1.8, using the soundlogic breakout board.

mach2 runs it wonderfully.  but mach3 doesnt do anything....  i set up mach3 exaclty as my mach2 is, no luck...    i uninstalled the works even removing the hardware drivers, reboot, then reinstal, no luck...  so i reinstalled mach2 again, and mach2 works fine as suspected...

got any ideas for me????

When you insty\alled Mach 3, did you have your jog enable enabled? Can you post your xml file for us to look at?

Hi, Shnitzel

You can have both Mach2 and Mach3 installed at the same time, Just Run one at a time.

Will get it Working, Chip
