EFW2 64bit application problem
« on: July 28, 2017, 04:11:22 PM »
Hello,

i bought an EFW2 filterwheel and installed the latest driver (SetupArtemisUniversal 4.1.2.8 core + ascom) from the Atik website. OS is Windows 7 64bit and the Ascom driver version is 6.3 - 6.4.0.2831.

I can use the Filterwheel with ArtemisCapture and SharpCap (32bit) with the Ascom 32bit driver. I get the following error with a 64bit application (e.g. FireCapture) during selecting the Ascom driver AtikEFW2 (or AtikinternalFilterWheel) in the Ascom dialog:

Incompatible Driver (ASCOM.AtikEFW2.FilterWheel) This 32bit only driver won't work in a 64bit application even though it is correctly registered as a 32bit COM driver. Please contact the driver author and request an updated driver.

(Incompatible Driver (ASCOM.AtikinternalFilterWheel.FilterWheel) This 32bit only driver won't work in a 64bit application even though it is correctly registered as a 32bit COM driver. Please contact the driver author and request an updated driver.)

Ascom Diagnostic -> Choose and connect to Device shows no ATIK filterwheel driver. After reboot it shows two entrys Atik EFW2 and Atik internal Filterwheel.

Ascom Diagnostic -> Choose and Connect to Device (32bit application) shows two entrys Atik EFW2 and Atik internal Filterwheel.

I deinstalled Artemis and reinstalled it. Same result.

I think the 64bit Ascom driver is missing . Where can i download the driver?

Thank you

Rupert

I've got exactly the same problem.
First with Ascom 6.2 Drivers, and newest artemis software = "This 32bit only driver won't work in a 64bit application"
then i deinstalled everything, updated Ascom to newest 6.3 and reinstalled artemis software = "This 32bit only driver won't work in a 64bit application"

Maybe the old Problem from before the march update of the artemis software got into it again?

Hi Everyone,

Unfortunately, the current core installer doesn't contain the 64bit filterwheel drivers. I imagine we'll add it in at some point, but for the time being, if you follow these steps, you should get it working:

1) Download and unzip the following files: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5jbfsw42m903un4/EFW2-64Bit.zip?dl=0
2) Copy the files from the 'System32' folder into your 'C:\Windows\System32' folder
3) Run the 'AtikEFW2ASCOMSetup.exe' file

If that doesn't work

4) Run the 'vcresdist_x64.exe'

I admit, it's a bit awkward at the moment, but if you have any problems feel free to let me know.

Chris.
