    Mach3 Windows 10 64bit 1803 Provisional Patch

    Like many in the CNC community, we and our customers have been affected by the Windows 10 (64bit), version 1803 update issue that leaves the Mach3 application unable to completely load (after profile selection, the splash screen will render and then disappear as the application crashes).

    We've investigated the cause and developed a provisional patch to the Mach3 (version 3.043.062) application binary that has demonstrated effectiveness in resolving the issue. We are working together with the Mach development team to further validate this patch as they work to deliver an official release in the near future.

    In the interest of helping those who have already been affected and can't afford to wait, we've decided to make the provisional patch available as an interim solution while the official fix undergoes further due diligence.

    Mach3 v.062 Provisional Patch > http://www.cncrouterparts.com/dl/mis...p001_patch.exe

    Before applying the fix, please ensure;

    1. Mach3 version 3.043.062 is installed. (.62 can be downloaded here)
    2. You are running Windows 10 64bit 1803 build

    Please note that this is not an official patch from Artsoft and we are making it available "as-is" until an official release addressing this issue becomes available.

    Congratulations and thank you! Even if it is unofficial and "as-is" I'd be very happy to try if I would have the problems and would depend on Mach3. Even though Mach3 is obsolete, it is really not good that it suddenly stops working, though the W10 1803 version is not yet globally distributed, which is good. Maybe there will be an 1804 soon, if more than Mach3 is affected, which will fix the issue.

    Nice work on this.
    While I don't run a machine with this PC, not being able to run Mach3 made it hard to provide help to others.

    Quick update; The lastest Mach3 download from Artsoft, v3.043.062, posted on their site contains the fix for Win 10 64bit 1803 (and beyond)! > http://www.machsupport.com/software/downloads-updates

    Future Microsoft updates are very unlikely to address the root-cause, therefore either the patch or the updated Mach3 download is needed for builds including/beyond 1803.

    Happy CNCing everyone!

    Thank you again.

    That depends on what the root of the cause is. If it is caused by a bug in W10 then I am sure it will be addressed by MS, but if it is caused by Mach3 not following Windows standard or doing something that causes some issues, or has a bug then of course, MS will not bother. Never the less, it is very good that Artsoft and you acted very fast. It definitely results in many happy faces if Mach3 can be kept going for a while more even if it is obsolete, outdated and too old, it is still a very good and useful software.

    Is it the version that just says 3.043?
    It doesn't say whether it .062 or .066, which was the previous version posted.

    Hi Gerry - Yes, the "Mach3Version3.043.exe" Mach3 installer file currently posted (contains v3.043.062 +" Win10 1803 patch") is the correct binary. If folks have already patched their Mach3 install, there is no need to re-download/install Mach3 again.

    These 6 updates I found online to be the cause but I don't have any of them installed.
    There must be more that I don't know of.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Re: Mach3 Windows 10 64bit 1803 Provisional Patch

    I realize this thread is about the Windows 10 patch and I've applied that to one of my machines running Windows 10 and it worked (thanks to CNCRouterParts and Artisoft)
    However, I also have a Windows 7 32-bit controller running Mach3 with the LPT driver. It recently got broken when I allowed a Windows7 update. I've uninstalled and downloaded the new Mach3 install multiple times without any success - Mach3 still crashes the PC right after the splash screen loads.
    Has anyone found a fix for this setup?
    I've decided it's time to move away from Mach3, so I've ordered a Centroid Acorn controller setup and a UCCNC Eth300-UB1 setup to replace them, but I'd like to keep the Windows7 rig running while I build up the control boxes.
    Thanks for any help.

    I think the only option with Windows 7 is to roll back the updates.

    I run my Mach 3 under Win 7 and keep it disconnected from the interwebz.

    But for those running Win 10, are you aware of the LTSB build you can get? Long Term Service Branch.

    LTSB is designed for exactly what we do, systems that are attached to equipment and NEED a stable environment.
    You will get 10 years of support unlike the 18 months with the "normal' builds, and upgrades will come every 2-3 years, unlike twice a year with the "normal" builds.

    Windows 10 LTSB Explained

    Something to look into perhaps.

    Gerry,
    Yeah, I tried rolling back to a couple of different dates and neither would boot up correctly after that.
    Oh well, I DO appreciate your input.

    Hi Ger,

    I get what you're saying, and I guess I could have/should have offered more info, and sadly I didn't read the whole article otherwise I would have found a "better" one to link to, my bad.
    The statement made in the article that LTSB is out of the reach of Joe Average is misleading.

    ***** Warning, boring techy crap follows*****

    LTSB is easily obtainable via Volume Licensing, now VL seems like a messy complicated beast but it's not really. (for those of us who play in this arena)..... :drowning:

    In order to get a VL agreement you need an initial purchase of 5 licenses, most people freak out right here "I'm not buying 5 copies of Win 10"!! (chair)
    That's not the intent, 5 licenses of ANYTHING, there are some licenses for obscure products that are less than $10 each, so for an additional cost of $50 over the cost of Windows you get access to Volume Licensing, and that gives access to LTSB.
    IMHO, that extra $50 would be well worth it for the stability that goes along with LTSB.

    Another option is this, along with certain levels of Volume Licensing Agreement that your employer might have (Do you use Office 365 at work, you might be half way there already) you might well already have the rights to access the VL benefits, and can possibly already use LTSB. There are various "add-on's" that come standard with VL agreements including free home use licenses. This is something to take up with your IT guys at work, but often it's "what you don't know you don't know" that slows you down or holds you back, if you know it's available, and you ask, you just might get. :banana:

    If you are still reading, well done, hope I've been making some degree of sense. If you want more info feel free to hit me up, it's not as complicated as it seems on the surface, you do not need to be a big corporate entity to access Volume Licensed product but there are a couple of tips and tricks that can simplify the process, I'm happy to assist.

    I know this is an old thread, but I seriously have done any and everything to try and find the answer without having to post.

    I can't get the mach3 drivers to install on windows 10 64 bit. I've also tried everything and really don't want to downgrade to 32 bit windows 10 or an older PC. Please if anyone has any info or can direct me to a how to install on 64 bit, id be beyond ecstatic. I've spent 25-30 hours easy on trying to get my computer to communicate with my BOB and just want to give up, but that's not in my nature.

    Thanks in advance for any input what-so-ever and have a great day.
