After digging trough some code, I found the command line option of platesolve2 plate solver. Maybe useful for some (script) programmers:
PlateSolve2.exe (Right ascension in radians),(Declination in radians),(x dimension in radians),(y dimension in radians),(Number of regions to search),(fits filename),(wait time at the end)
De wait time is optional. The 6 of 7 parameters should be separated by a comma. The values should have a decimal point not a comma. Example: platesolve2.exe 4.516,0.75,0.0296,0.02268,999,1.fit,0
The plate center result [rad] RA,DEC is reported in the first line of a text file with extension .APM
I'm trying to download the accompanying files for PlateSolve2, APM Catalog installer and UCAC3 catalog. I can only find them on Planewave.com. The download for these files never completes? PlateSolve2 downloaded first time. The UCAC3 file is a different size to the ones found elsewhere, must have been formatted for application use. Can someone direct me to another download location for these files.
