Re: GTO CP3 connection problem via COM port in Windows 10
Hi Henry,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Before connecting the driver open Windows Device Manager and find the COM port(s) that are present on your system. Then open the AP V2 Driver ASCOM Setup. The driver does not automatically discover which port the mount is using so you must select the proper COM port. Select each port and click "Check Port" until you locate the port. Then close the window. The driver should now connect
Also, do not run Voyager or any other ASCOM client as administrator. It should not be required to run any ASCOM client applications as administrator as that may cause a second instance of the driver to start if you also have another application connected.
If you still have problems with take notice of the COM port the driver is trying to connect with to make sure it matches the COM port the mount is connected to. If you are using a USB/serial converter sometimes they try to allocate a new COM port every time they run or after booting. If you have one that does that then try updating its device driver. If that doesn't help try a different USB/serial converter, or if you have a desktop get a serial port add in card.
