All,

Looking at the log files I found this little snippet below that shows I was missing JVM-64 bit. Although the JVM-32 bit was installed it still wasn't working.

I just went download the latest JVM-64bit from JAVA, https://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp. Just get the file named "Windows Offline (64-bit)" and install that and you will be good to go.

Here is the snippet from the log file that caught my attention, scroll down to the highlighted section ( I don't know much about code at all!):

I'm very interested in command line support - something I haven't been able to find with universal g code sender. Have you or will you include such support?

There are two tools which I'm aware of which support CLI, listed on the wiki:

http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/ ... ontrol#CLI

It would be nice for the GUI tools to support this as well.

Quick question. I have tried for months to get software to interact with my tinyg controller. Yours is the first that seems pretty straight forward. I have loaded a gcode into the software and I don't see how ro execute the command to start cutting. Am I missing something?

Thanks!!
