Download from the Mach site, its on the downloads page. You could also use Mach3Screen which should be in the Mach folder if you wish.

Well i dled that file.  Ran it and tried to open the 1024 file.  And it just kept erroring out.  So i tried the keygrabber method.  It works but it seems like you half to open keygrabber ever time you restart the computer.  I have my computer setup to open mach3 soon as windows turns on.  Just to make it simple on the operator.  Is there a way to make it so keygrabber opens?  i can make it open the program but unless you then minimize keygrabber it dont work.  Is there a way to make it open its self then minimize.  I just dont wanna half to open keygrabber ever time i turn the machine on.  Seems like a hassle.

I use an ipac with keygrabber, what you do is change to Mach3 shorcut to open keygrabber rather than Mach itself,  when keygrabber starts you then click on the start Mach button on the keygrabber screen.

Oh and as far as the errors you get when opening 1024.set in screen4, are you using an older version of Mach3? think it needs the latest ones to work. If you are using Mach3 ver 1.84 your best bet would be to use the old screen designer (Mach3Screen.exe)

That worked great Hood.  Thanks for the help.  Now i got my pendant working perfect.  Only thing left is to install my safety charge pumps to turn on my controller soon as i open mach3.  I want to setup this machine so its a 1 button turn on process.
