    It's actually available to try and buy in pre release if you like and there's a Parallel port driver in development to try but be aware both are still very very buggy so don't recommend you mess unless you know what your doing and are prepared for head scratching.!!

    Also if trying to run a machine then I would set it up on another PC for safety.

    Mach Demo/ pre release http://www.machsupport.com/software/mach4/

    Parallel port driver. Reply 468 is the latest version but suggest you read the whole thread.!! http://www.machsupport.com/forum/ind...27194.460.html

    Also if you buy the pre-release before end of August you get it cheaper and the Full industrial strength version for the same price ( thou you need to ask for the feature you'd like to use). This is a good offer has the Industrial strength version will be over $1000.!!

    Not sure how he's able to run parts, while a lot of us spend more time rebooting our locked up PC's. Beta testing at it's finest.

    Ye know what you mean but I just think of the value and free support I've had for all these years then it don't seem so painful.! . . . . Infact it's peanuts for what I've gained and will do in future.!
