    Default PlasmaCam DHC2 and design and control 3.11 Help

    Been running with an old eMachine and windows xp for almost two decades, and it finally took a crap. I’m wondering if I can use the same software on a new pc running windows ten or eleven, or if I’m going to be forced to buy new software as well as a new pc. Follow up, does anyone know if I can find an adapter for a parallel port to usb/hdmi or something more commonly found on new computers.

    I don't have specific knowledge of PlasmaCam, but in general modern versions of Windows (64bit Windows) do not allow full control over the parallel port needed for CNC programs.

    I think you will be better off buying a used, functional PC running Windows XP.

    For example: https://www.ebay.com/itm/17616667472...3ABFBMyLP-grNj

    I have not done business with that particular Ebay vendor, but a review of his other items suggests he that offers multiple older PCs (more likely experienced at repair) and has a 100% feedback rating (I avoid vendors with feedback below 98% and look for 99% or better).
