FCUSB and Firecapture

Post by RICHARD » Sat Jun 18, 2016 12:04 am

I use your focuser FCUSB with the latest ASCOM drivers. The command with 'FocusPal' works very well. But when I try to order it with 'Firecapture' (v. 2. 4 and 2. 5) the focuser is not recognized and does not support the proposed drivers (FCUSB driver and Combined). Same with Sharcap (v. 2. 5 or 2. 8) that does not work. As against this works with Sharcap v1. 5 using the driver 'FCUSB Combined Focuser Driver'. I use Windows 8. 1.
Thank you to see how it could work with Firecapture.

Just to be sure, do you also have the ASCOM platform installed? Have you tried running it through the ASCOM POTH hub?

Thank you for your reply. I had the good ASCOM drivers. But I reinstalled everything (capture software and ASCOM drivers). Now it works well with SharCap and Firecapture. Thank you and excuse the bad English!
