    I am running a windows 10 laptop and installed the Openbuilds Control software to control my new Black Box on my Ox machine. Unfortunately, I cannot get the laptop to open the program. I winds up, and gives me a pop up that a new session has started, but I get nothing else. Is anyone else having this issue or have a work around? Or can anyone suggest another controller for the blackbox that might work on my POS laptop. I tried GRBL, but I do not know what processor this uses to try that. Any help would be appreciated.

    I think that was the same thing my laptop was doing. When that small window pops up, click on it before it goes away.

    Click in your sys tray and you'll see the OB Control icon. Right click and and select Open GUI

    It worked!. Thanks. Now I just have to wire the darn machine up and figure out how to work it. And figure out everything else I need to know. And...
