Might be an idea to delete everything in the Mach folder and re download Mach and install again.

I have done this yesterday as per Your suggestion, first trial was ok as feed DRo but not actual cicle time.

pc where I'am testing now is a laptop 1.8g with 1 g of ram , ( I know I should not use a laptop but this is the pc where I test blank the program and never had problem with rel 1.84) This evening I may try to update a more powerfull desktop to see if it is the pc

Run the driver test and see what it looks like. You could also try uninstaling the driver from device managr. Laptops are notorious for giving poblems, some work some dont.

If you remove the driver the laptop may well run fine for simulation purpose. If you want to use the laptop to control a machine then you would have to go with an external motion controller such as the smothtepper.

Many thanks Hood,
I have done what You suggested and now the program runs well on the laptop as simulation and I had no problem loading it in full on a desktop,again simulation as no machine in connected.
I am ready now to do the installation on the machine pc.

thanks
