DMFC and win XP

Post by phenrotay »

Hello,
Is it possible to run the dual motor focus controller with windows xp?
As far as I can read ascom 6.6 is required, which does not support xp.
I know that XP is pretty old but still alive in my usual setup.

The older software works fine with XP
Please use the older standalone software available from our website

Then there is a major problem somewhere.

I received myPegasus focus motor and DMFC controller today.
Unfortunately, I cannot run this equipment from my XP computer !
I downloaded the “older” software as was pointed out above :
Focus Controller Setup v.4.4.5 (Sep/21)
and
ASCOM Focus Driver v2.19 (Jan/22)
but they cannot be installed : when I try to run these, each is reported as not being an XP 32 bits application, and the installation fails immediately.
This is NOT a download problem. I was able to install the same files on a Win10 machine for test.
So I am stuck – I do not envisage to change my present capture computer.

Help please...

Pierre
