Driver error 217
« on: May 05, 2019, 03:18:10 AM »
After months of completely problem-free operation, I could not connect to my 460EX. So I updated core software to 5.1.0.1 with dusk and I can now connect using both Artemis and Dusk no problem. However The Sky X pro is what I have been using for capture program and after updating software I can no longer connect with TSX. I get error 217, "necessary driver not found" I have "Atik Universal " selected in TSX. Driver for Atik 460 is correctly listed in device manager (Win 10 system) so not sure what is going on. Perhaps TSX uses a different driver that also needs to be updated?
Thanks
Dave

Reinstalled the drivers and rebooted twice. I can get it to work in TSX fine with ASCOM now. X2 driver still doesn't work but no matter. We're good for now!

If you are working on Windows operating systems like Vista, 7, 8 and 10, you must start the program with administrator privileges.
