CPU utilization
« on: January 16, 2020, 03:02:44 PM »
I am running Mach4 on a new windows 10 laptop. I am seeing very high (85% or so) CPU utilization in Task Manager from running Mach4.
I uninstalled and reinstalled Mach4, and the utilization is normal when running Mach4 until I install and configure the SmartBOB plugin.
Is this normal?
The only problem it is causing is slow mouse pointer response, bit it could lead to other issues later.

No, not normal.  Does this happen as soon as you start Mach4 (with the SmartBOB plugged in to the USB port and the SmartBOB plug-in selected as the motion plug-in)?  Or does the high CPU usage start when you click the "Enable" button?
