Question #: 15461

Question: [Mach4 CNC Control Software] I wanted to know if I could use a computer with 64 bits windows installed (with Parallel port in the mainboard) or not. Thanks

Current Solution

Mach4 is designed to run in both 64 and 32-bit computers and operating systems, however, the parallel port interface will not work with 64-bit windows. The easiest solution would be to use a more modern CNC controller, like the:

pokeys57cnc that I sell

Or other options like the Smoothstepper board that I do not sell.

Both are great options.
