UC300ETH Issues with Windows 10 and MAch3

Ok let me start off by saying I have three different machines using their own UC300ETH controllers, Mach3, Windows 10.

For the most part I have no issues until I got into the Xbox 360 plugin for Mach3. It works perfectly under Windows 7 but under Windows 10 its broke.

The jog speed are stunted, and their are times the buttons dont seem to work. I worked on this for a couple weeks thinking it was an issue with my direct X. Not so.

I switched back to the UC100 and everything works just fine. Is this something you can look into. I have written 6 books on the CNC Construction Set and I have books that feature both the UC100 and the UC300ETH. I was also looking at moving my KRMx02 books over the the UC300ETH.

All I can tell my readers at this time is that the Mach3 Xbox 360 plugin is not compatible with the UC300ETH on Windows 10.

why not ditch Mach3 and upgrade to UCCNC?

I am using W10 with UC300ETH and it works fine with both Mach3 and UCCNC. I don't use the Xbox plugin, but as far as I know, it works also. Perhaps something is wrong with your PC, or the network or your W10 installation... :?:

@Robertspark
I have both UCCNC and MAch3 installed on various machines. I will not get into a debate between the two. I have several books that I have written and am in the process of writing.

The issues that I am writing about are feedback from many of my readers. Some of the books are about specific build electronics, IE Mach3 and UC100, or Mach 3 and the UC300ETH, or UCCNC and .....

For my plasma CNC books Mach3 and UC300ETH seem to be the most popular configurations people are using.

@A_Camera
Please read the post.
I did not say that the UC300 does not work with Mach3 and Windows 10. As a matter of fact it works very well. I am using this configuration on two plasma CNC machines.

It is the interface with that plugin that I am having. I just need answers that I can relay to my readers.

I did a little more experimenting and am having the same problem with the Xboxshilling and Joypad plugins with the UC300ETH, Mach3, and Windows 10 combination.

Again, the UC100, works fine in this combination.
