OK, I have now installed picsender and the last available Java platform for XP onto my XP machine but I am experiencing problems.
Fistly, Picsender appears to lock up after connecting to the arduino and I have to use the Task Manager to kill the Picseder.exe file to stop it and re-boot.
That I don't understand as I have never had to do that on my Win7 machine - even when testing Picsender prior to purchase.
Are there any different requirements for using PS with an XP (32bit) machine compared with the Win7 (64bit) machine? I am missing something, that's for sure if PS supposedly works 'great' with XP. I know XP is old, but it runs my Mach3 mill faultlessly and I would be reticent to change the OS unnecessarily if I can avoid it. On the other hand, both CNC machines are side by side in my workroom and it would make much more sense to use just one computer to control either milling machine - wouldn't it?
