As of build 2580 Mach4 now has a function to capture the
machine configuration and profile into a zip file. This is
useful when there are doubts about how the machine is
configured.

This function is under the Help > Support dialog. If you
use it, be sure to edit the email address to send it to
PMDX instead of MachSupport.
