    Hello Richard,

    What error are you getting? G code sender works well under windows 8.x and 10, so it's not your OS. JAVA can be pulled fro the net as well, just make sure you get it from a known site as there are a lot of malware infected versions out there. You might have downloaded a version that needs to be compiled or so, have seen that before. You should have 4 files, 3 files are just 1kbyte and one is about 7Mbyte, you should run the 7Mbyte logically.
