    Hurco PC Ultimax 3 software 1.6

    Colleagues! Please help.

    Bought in the UK Hurco BMC 30M, 1996 y.o.m

    However, it turned out that the hard drive was damaged.

    There are floppy disks in the black book, but the main one is also damaged.

    Perhaps someone has a distribution of Hurco PC Ultimax 3 software 1.6?

    I have the same issue but with 2.21 vmx24 I have first 3 disk installed but stuck on patch disk 010 . It's missing from machine book and I can't continue with installation.
    I have format d: drive by mistake.
    Maybe someone have some clone or install disk?

    Thank you for your fast replay , i have skiped patch disk and now loader is trying to start but after while i get error that disk is not recognized . I hade same issue before when i have trying to boot computer with A and B floppy enabled in bios or without any floppy enabled. Now i have set every line in bios as before but same result.
    I don't have any knowledge of Hurco systems but seems that i'm missing something.
    Also in hurry i think i have messed up another working machine ( I have tried to copy files from another machine VM1 first to another desktop hdd and then to this VMC24 HDD and instead copy - paste i have used cut-paste . immediately i have returned copied files back on the drive but now machine is stuck with "Debuger detected in loader" - )
    Sometimes good day can be better

    Sorry that i'm using another user my phone battery is dead so i had to create new account on computer

    I have fixed VM1 machine , just copied files in order HURCO.LDR first and everything is good now.

    On the other machine the VMX24 i have reinstalling the 2.21 update software from start ( skip the pach as advised by bloke ) and everything is going ok but on final prompt when computer ask for disk 1 to be inserted again , then picture and computer freeze ( keyboard not working ).
    After restarting machine now there is no any display on the monitors

    Computer looks like is working normally but not producing picture

    Anybody with similar problem

    If you can wait a week or so, I am taking delivery of the BMC30M floppies - I can try to get a copy for you.

    Be careful when updating software on machines with V2.21 software. It had a very specific security key option that only worked with that level of software. It was also a bit troublesome for loading the configuration files so don’t delete them.

    I can send V1.64 software via email. It just needs loading onto appropriately named disks.

    Did you contact Bloke about this? As if he already has the software files, it will be much easier!

    If not, my floppy drive is arriving tomorrow and I will clone the disks. I have read that cloning bootable floppies may not be as simple as I hoped though.... so no promises!

    Hello, is it possible for you to help me out too please ? I'm gonna have a heart attack because of the power supply here in Romania, looks like some software files were damaged because of this.. My "lovely" country Romania.
    Thank you in advance.

    Hello Bloke !

    Could you be so kind and help me with my BMC30 (YOM 99') Ultimax 3 with the software files ? Of course I'm willing to pay for your service sir. The machine didn't come with the floppy drives ...

    Thank you,
    Raymond
