They look right - at least should be in the right place.

So long as the rest of Cywin is there then its back to permissions problem - most likely corrupt if you say you have started ASPS as administrator.  If you are very familiar/confident in changing permissions I would not attempt any changes.

in c:\users\Master PC\AppData\Local\Astrometry\temp folder you should find a file called "stars" this is the log file normally displayed by ASPS (and other platesolve sofware that uses Astrometry ) - see if that exists - what is the date/time (it should correspond to your last ASPS attempt) and if it contains anything - first line should be "Reading input blah blah".

If the file does not exist then you need to get a local IT mate round as its a lot of investigating to sort this sort of problem - especially remotely. And as per permissions you could ask him/her to look at those too.

Hi David. POTH (Plain Old Telescope Handset) is more of a developer tool, think of it as a mail sorting office with the added benefit that you can read and rifle through the incoming and outgoing

Clicking "Blind" uses ASPS in APT plus I think you can tick a box to say use ASPS all the time in APT settings - so not just  for GOTO++

My advice is to ditch the hand controller, invest in a eqdirect cable such as the lynx make from FLO  less clutter the better.

Side note as I don’t think it’s been mentioned: if you’re having to run things as administrator you’re going to have issues. There’s no need to run or install anything as administrator. It just creates more problems than it solves as things NOT running as (v.loosely speaking) administrator generally can’t talk to things that are & vice-versa, and you end up creating default profiles & sockets that can’t be updated by non-admin users etc.

This thread is amazing, they will help you get your kit working if you stick at it.

The amount of help provided to newbies is way beyond anything I have seen elsewhere, just amazing - there I said it again.

I do have this file. Just one file in the temp dir called Stars.fit. I opened it with notepad++ and screen captured it below.

ASPS works on my laptop with the same images i am using here as I am sharing folders from my main pc to laptop.

Problem is I want to do all my imaging via PC.

Thank you for all the suggestions and help.
