Does that computer need to be online? or can I save it to say, the USB key?

I did the driver test and it is saying that mach3 "took control"

There was a good line and the freq. is approx. 25,800.

It all seemed ok. Colin

Yes saving to USB is fine.
 Looks like your pulse engine is fine then.

A message for Jeff Birt

The fact of the matter is the best time to get a new OS is when like XP it is near the end of it's life all the bugs "Well Most Of Them" have been ironed out as with XP and SP3 this link shows that Vista takes more than twice as long to complete a task http://news.cnet.com/Windows-XP-outshines-Vista-in-benchmarking-test/2100-1016_3-6220201.html

The best OS for Mach would the one that uses the least resources and it ain't Vista

I remember at the time when XP first came out someone from Redmond said XP had fixed 20,000 bugs someone else said but they have created 30,000 new ones  ;D

For some reason I am having trouble replying with this attachment. I guess I need assistance with that too.

Colin,

When your reply, look for the additional Options button, it will let you add a file.

Hi CT i think you may have to rename it too. I think i am right in saying you cannot upload any file using a default name IE "Mill.xml"

So the copy on the USB drive rename to a non standard name ie "colins.xml" and then try

You will get there in the end.

It took me forever, but I think I finally got it off to him ??? I am not an expert to start with and Vista is still new as well....I'm a DoughHead should sum it up! Thanks to all for your patience. Colin
