Machine not working after development install
« on: August 03, 2008, 12:35:26 PM »
Dear Art,

I wrote to you privately about this before, after you response I tried the following:
Here is what the problem is: After installing the development version on a working machine, the machine was not responding.

Now I tested the machine by reinstalling the lock down version (on the same xml file). Then the machine works without problem. I then saved the working xml file. Installed the development version again copied the xml file to the mach3 folder but again no response of the machine. reinstalled the lock down version and again the machine worked.

Art or somebody, is this a bug or is there a setting that has changed on the latest versions? remember, with the same xml file it works on the lock down, but not on the development!

Dont know why that would happen, I use the development all the time and its fine.
Do the DROs move when you try to Jog?
Any error messages?
Any other clues you may get?

Can't think of any reason for it not working if the xml's are exactly the same.
Have you tried setting up a new  profile, just entering any enables and one motor would be enough to see if you get movement then add the rest step by step if you do.

Same as Hood here. Haven't seen the development version do that here.
