I have a license key for mach3 to unlock all of its features and run
in full funtion if you have downloaded the demo and want to convert it
to a licensed product I paid $159.00 for it so email me and make me a
offer I am just getting out of the CNC thing my hobby has cost me way
more than I wanted to spend .

Do they not keep track of who has what key? I know that when I downloaded Mach 3 to just check it out I ended up buying a CNC lathe that operated on Mach 3 so I bought a cpu just for the lathe and tried to download another trial version - wouldn't do it as they installed a cookie along with the first download, and the cookie blocked the second download - got around that by getting rid of the cookie... As luck would have it other things have happened and I've not had a chance to even open them, yet...

Otherwise, I'm interested in it at say $75. Who knows if I'll run into a problem with them...

Hi cliff Yeh the key is a big issue if your buying a pirated copy but I have already downloaded the trial software from the link I was provided on another computor and then installed the license key in the folder and it works great call me at 865 680 7529 and we can talk before you buy and if it dont work for any reason I will refund your money It will be through my paypal account and you will get the invoice they sent me when I bought it so if there is any problem and there wont be but we can get you installed.

I would suggest doing a full uninstall of Mach3 before attempting to
install the second copy. Because of the low level driver Mach installs,
there could be a conflict. If you need to operate multiple machines from the
same PC and are trying to use multiple installs of Mach. Just set up a
separate profile for each machine. I have several profiles on one machine,
one for mill and two for different lathes. Works great. I have a DB-25 A-B
switch to switch between two of the machines, the lath and small mill.

Cliff,

Something does not sound correct. You should be able to download a copy of
Mach onto any computer. The key to getting the full use is the license key
that you purchased. The license key needs to be copied into the Mach3
directory.

No, I believe that their computer is programmed to recognize which email addresses have downloaded Mach 3. I was using the same connection for both computers. They install a cookie to recognize a line that has already downloaded Mach 3 - once I removed the cookies I had no problem downloading Mach 3 on the second computer.

Dennis,

Thanks for the information. I had originally installed Mach 3 on my primary cpu - thought I'd try some phantom cuts...lol...I should have known better as everything under the sun that could interrupt me did. Then I bought a second cpu to use solely with the cnc lathe. This is the one that I was initially blocked for downloading Mach 3 onto, but as I mentioned, once I removed the cookies Mach 3 downloaded nicely. I still haven't had an opportunity to try it out...this is supposed to be retirement???

How did you make out in the hurricane, Dennis? We came through just fine - didn't even lose a shingle. The wood fences in the backyard at the sides took a bit of a slant, but a little shove straightened them right up.

I'm a wee bit startled to see the article in today's Houston Chronicle about all of the FEMA ice that is being left to melt at their central site. Colin was at a charity operated POD this past Saturday - they had to ration ice - and FEMA says that there is no need for all of the ice that they brought??? Someone isn't doing a good job of checking on all of the POD's. They could have used some of that ice if they had been doing their jobs properly. Instead it's our tax money melting away...

I am still curious. May be terminology. Downloading is a simple
file transfer. I probably have 3 or 4 Mach3 downloaded files on various PCs.
I tend to keep older versions and download the latest development version to
see what Art and Brian have been up to. I can't see how the downloading
process could reference a cookie. Now once the file has been downloaded and
the file is executed to install Mach3, cookies may come into play. I've
never had a problem and my PCs tend to have a tight security on cookies.

I got power back after 7+ days. The only good thing from the
hurricane is I had committed to have my new 7x10 CNCed lathe at the Home
Metal Shop Club meeting for show and tell Sept 13. It wasn't ready, so the
big wind saved me the embarrassment of not being ready. After power came
back (hard working on CNC stuff with no power), it took a couple of days to
get the spindle index sensor talking to Mach3. As usual, it was easy, but I
had to go through 3-4 days of making it harder then it should be. I'm
working on the spindle speed control connections today. If we don't get
another storm, I will have it for the October meeting.

This is clearly not true- most Mach users download new versions
frequently- sometimes even daily as updates are made. The forum may
place cookies to keep track of your forum views, but there is nothing
that in any way prevent downloading multiple times, whether you have a
license or not.

It is also impossible for the download to recognize your e-mail address.
It could record the IP address of the requesting computer, but it has no
way to get your e-mail unless you enter it to some form.

Three things:

1. If they recorded your email address without your knowledge and
specific permission they would be in violation of Federal law.
(Obviously if you enter your email address you have given specific
permission. BUT if they look for your email address on your machine
on subsequent visits to the site, they are still in violation.)

2. Cookies are machine dependent. A cookie on one machine cannot
control actions on another machine. Even if it were to be done,
again they would need your specific permission to access your
network outside the scope of the browser/download/ftp connection.

3. Controlling downloads by IP address is almost impossible.

First, if you have a dialup connection, you will get a different IP
address every time you connect. Depending upon the size of the POP
you are accessing you might repeat an address 1% of the time.

If you are on DSL, Cable, etc., the "lease" on the IP address
assigned to you will have a finite time after which your
modem/router will have to request a new one. It may be the same
address, but that scenario is covered in my next statement.

Even if you have a static IP or happen to get the same address every
time your "lease" is renewed, that single IP address is all that is
seen by the outside world. All the computers on your internal
network have private IP addresses that are not routable and not seen
by the outside world. If a vendor were to block downloads to one per
IP address, they would be restricting you to one copy of their
program. If you have 10 CNC machines I'm sure they would be more
than happy to sell you 10 licenses. Restricting you to one download
would not be conducive to that process.

Very rarely a casual Internet user will have need for Public IP
addresses to be assigned to his internal network. In this case he
will almost certainly have to make a special request to his ISP,
telco or cable company. And you can bet money they are going to
tack on a monthly charge.

Bottom line, I have downloaded Mach3 to a number of machines and
have never had a problem. If you are experiencing a problem, look
carefully at your machine. Something is amiss. Be sure your popup
blockers, site filters, virus checkers, etc. are not causing the
problem. Run a well-known virus checker (such as McAfee) with the
latest updates.

The cause is not going to lie with the Mach3 site.

HI Cliff

I have several versions on mach on several machines, one being used
commercially and the others being developed.

The license is a file they email you that you copy into the main mach
operating folder.

Software updates are simply downloaded from the site, and I've down loaded
them from several locations, different IP's and different machines with
different email address's, never had a problem.

However when it comes to versions of the software, they have lockdown
versions that are pretty stable, then development versions that can get
really dreadful as people test them and find all sorts of bugs before they
become stable and eventually the next lockdown version.

I am aware they have had problems from some counties who thought they could
hack, or buy one license and freely distribute it. Art and Brian have built
sections into the software that upset things if a hack file, or possibly
illegally distributed license are being used.

I also believe they keep records about posters on the news group, and
licensed posters.



This is why I suggested contacting them before buying a second hand license.
You don't know the seller, so Art / Brian would be able to confirm it's
coatia, possibly turn that license off and issue you with a fresh one in
your name, or just re-register the one you want to buy in your name. They
are a pretty decent bunch, they go the extra mile with support and
development, and the software is pretty cheap unlike some other CNC firms,
that's why I work with them and am prepared to put a lot of my time back in
to help so we all work on a common goal.



Hope that helps

From my experience run every virus checker you can get your hands on because they are not all the same. Some catch trogens or viruses that the "others" don't.

I ran into a nasty one a while back and knew that it was still in my system (I'm a retired computer tech and know how to use regedit). McAfee and PC?? didn't even know it was there. Problem was finding all the sub program installs and getting rid of them. I don't remember the virus program I used but it was the only one that found it and removed it. I remember it was a tracking virus.

Here's a tip for those that know how to use regedit. Search for runonce from the beginning. Once found go back one key to RUN and note what is installed there. ALLOT of the nastys put a line in there so that their programs run at startup.

Recently I have seen a lot of trojans run right through Mcafee, and
Mcafee never recognizes them. I think Mcafee is dropping the ball.
If you get in a jam, try Malwarebytes. Recently it has been very
effective at removing some nasty trojans that can slow you machine.

Do they not keep track of who has what key? I know that when I downloaded Mach 3 to just check it out I ended up buying a CNC lathe that operated on Mach 3 so I bought a cpu just for the lathe and tried to download another trial version - wouldn't do it as they installed a cookie along with the first download, and the cookie blocked the second download - got around that by getting rid of the cookie... As luck would have it other things have happened and I've not had a chance to even open them, yet...

Otherwise, I'm interested in it at say $75. Who knows if I'll run into a problem with them...

I have a license key for mach3 to unlock all of its features and run
in full funtion if you have downloaded the demo and want to convert it
to a licensed product I paid $159.00 for it so email me and make me a
offer I am just getting out of the CNC thing my hobby has cost me way
more than I wanted to spend .
