To avoid the potential Windows updates difficulties, how workable would be running APPC, the ASCOM drivers, SGP, PHD2, etc. on an Apple MacBook Pro running Parallels Desktop?
I do essentially the same thing. I got everything running with the new laptop about 2 years ago - all of the drivers, ASCOM, AP ASCOM driver, Sequence generator Pro, PHD2, TheSkyX. Since then I have been running this configuration without a single failure.
If I get a new camera or my new Mach2 comes, then I will go ahead and update everything, get everything running and then run with that configuration as long as I can while not allowing the computer to update Windows.
I wish that Sequence Generator was available in a Linux version then I could dispense with Windows completely, but it is not.
