Re: Polar Alignment/RAPAS

I was going to try a Pempro run on my AP900 mount using an older XP Service Pack3 backup laptop (main one being fixed) I tried upgrading to build 136 from Build 135 and got the following error "error 1904 module c:\windows \system\hhctrl.ocx failed to register HRESULT 2147024769". uninstalled build 136 and reinstalled build 135 but got the same error message. I clicked ignore and the installation proceeded to conclusion and Pempro seems to work ie. can connect to the mount and download the Pec curve. Is the error message something I need to be concerned about?
PS: I tried installing the beta version 3 but it doesn't look like it will work on XP.

Hi Jim,

Not a problem! I want to fix bugs when people find them. Luckily, this one was easy to reproduce. Thanks for reporting it.

The new v5.08.06 driver can be downloaded from here:
