  1. Hi Guy, first, let my thank you for being so kind to share your project which I think is the perfect answer for many astronewbies in a budget like me who wouldn’t be able to achieve autoguiding otherwise. I was ready to implement your SimpleGpUsb project but then I found your ArduinoAstroControl so I decided to go with the last one which looks to have even more future potential. I've followed the instructions but after installing all the software and trying to do the first test using your TelescopeDriver Test.jp, it failed to load the driver, same happens with PHD too. It shows this message: Failed to load driver: An exception occurred in the target destination I’ve tried everything from uninstalling the older SimpleGpUsb drivers, the ASCOM platform, FTDI’s drivers and reinstalling the ASCOM platform then ArduinoAstroControl, to upgrading the ASCOM Platform to version 5.5 and back to version 5, and some other combinations but never go it to work. I’m guessing the problem may be in some kind of conflict with the SimpleGpUsb driver not been totally removed or maybe is just that it can’t work as an ASCOM local server in my XP laptop for some reason. I’m stuck at this point, so I’ll be infinitely grateful If you could help me here. Thank you Luis
