    Question Licenced Mach3 Version R3.043.022 and ESS changes to demo version

    Licenced Mach3 Mill Version R3.043.022, Changes when acces the help function with " About mach3 control" clicked to "demo" version instead my licence name,
    from the moment that I start up with the Mill.XML file while ESS plug in is activated.

    This restrict the line limit to 500.

    Is there anybody with the same experience and the ability to give a solution for this problem?

    Thanks in advance

    Look in the Mach3 directory and make sure you can see your license file.

    Hello Russ,

    Yes the licence file is copied in the Mach3 directory.
    I will explain the steps that I have followed to get the problem.

    1) I installed the Mach3 V R3.043.022
    2) I copied the licence to Mach3 directory
    3) I created a Mill profile "Mill Home1"
    4) I started up Mach3
    5) I checked if the program was licenced. The program indicated in the left upper corner that Mach3 is licenced +Name and unlimitted line Nbrs.
    6) I clicked on the help function and in the drop down menu on " About mach3 control" The screen indicated licenced + name + version R3.043.022.
    7) I configured the CNC milling machine and added the ESS (Ethernet Smooth Stepper) plug in module.
    8) I restarted Mach3 and checked step 5 and 6, step 5 indicated identical, step 6 indicated Demo + Version
    9) From then on, the line nbr limit was max 500 lines
    10) I created a new 2nd profile "Mill Home2"
    11) Started up Mach3 with Mill Home2 (Mach3 default configuration without ESS) and checked step 5 & 6

    Result:step 6 Licenced + Name, Step 6 Name + Version and unlimitted line nbrs.

    Whit this I conclude that the implementation of the ESS causes the problem.

    Is there anybody with the same experience and the ability to give a solution for this problem?

    Thanks in advance

    Very interesting. I have ESS plugin for both MACH3 and MACH4 and have never seen this issue. Try and download the ESS plugin again. Are you running the newest version? If so get the previous version to try and isolate what causes the problem.

    Did you buy the license from Artsoft, and is it in your name?
