Guidemaster 1.8 and LXUSB

Post by newton_ » Tue Sep 26, 2006 3:29 pm

Hi, i'm Carlos from Barcelone, Spain.

I have an LXUSB accesory from Shoestring Astronomy.

Guidemaster 1.8 is a free software for guide astrophotography with webcam.

Guidemaster says at http://www.guidemaster.de/guidemaster_demo_en.asp
that is compatible with LXUSB, but Shoestring at http://www.store.shoestringastronomy.co ... cts_lx.htm not says this compatibility.

I run Guidemaster 1.8 with LXUSB and not run.

Is LXUSB compatible with Guidemaster?



Best Regards

Carlos,

I have not tried Guidemaster myself, but Matthias the Guidemaster author says on his website that it does support the LXUSB. From the error message you posted, it looks like the software cannot find the LXUSB DLL. Matthias should distribute the DLL with Guidemaster, but perhaps it was not. Contact Matthias and see if he can provide you with a fix to this problem. If not, please let me know.
