Just a note.
I have found that if you have a Micromill 2000 (circa 2002 With red 7 segment display V2.1 or V2.13 software; the versions in the machines I have tried) the settings within VR5 are not correct.
In the Micromill 2000 DENSTEP from the legacy machine option.

To stop getting the Access Violation error when you try to connect to the Micromill (real machine)

Go To
Setup machine parameters
(password denny)
you should have the 'Micromill 2000 DENSTEP' expanded
click on Communication
Where it says Control Type 0
change to Control Type 20

it should run fine.

Hope that helps others.
