I go by the rulw of old techs... "If it works don't touch it, for if you do it will be
up beyond all repair and need replacing!". So since this machine has gone through 2 controllers (Foam Lynx and still has a HobbyCNC foam board) about 4 bow power supplies and the old drawer slides have gotten loose I figured it was time to put in something more lasting, the basis for this machine is heavy duty router parts.
GMFC with the GGC V2 runs fine on windows 64bits. But I don't think that there will be a 64 bit GMFC driver for the parallel port. I just don't have such machine and the parallel port is now outdated tech...
