I've made it work by changing the system wide locale options for the decimal numbers, but it's a total PITA because it affects all applications.

RE: problems starting my first draw
It's because of the Windows locale.
When you move the pen around using the arrows EleksCAM is sending G commands without decimals, hence they work.
When you start a drawing the G commands are sent with decimals, which MUST use the USA/UK decimal point. If you, like me, are in a country where the comma is used instead, the firmware will not recognize the G commands and just ignore them.
EleksCAM does not seem to have an option to change this.
