Viz Basic Interpreter gone funny.
« on: July 08, 2008, 06:05:33 AM »
I had a hiccup on my workshop lathe, whilst doing a Viz Basic macro, but the trouble is something has gone funny now.

Anything I write (macro wise) will not run, and the interpreter will not recognise the syntax, even if it is correct - e.g. a line with more than one & in.

If I write it on my "office" computer - and then transfer it across to the workshop, it runs fine.

Can anybody tell me where the Viz Basic exe file(s)  is/are  in Mach 3 so I can copy a decent file across, I can't find them
Not me driving the engine - I'm better looking.

jimpinder,

    Your macros live in the this directory:  Mach3\Macros\you machine profile
But, having said the above, see if your Engine has stopped working, run driver test, if that is working, then reinstall mach3 again.

 Scott -

I don't have any files in Mach 3/Macro folder other than Mill, Plasma and Turn sub folders.  These just contain Vis Basic files that I have written (or other people). There are no basic.exe files or interpreters or anything.

The drivers are still working on the workshop lathe, in fact everything is fine, the machine is running well, apart from this inability to write, or edit, Vis Basic files. as I say - if I do them on this computer in the office everything is fine. I must have corrupted something - but I don't know what.

Jim.

In Mach3 main directory,  "Enable40.dll" is the cypress Enable plugin

Just reinstall mach3
