Re: Do NOT use ASCOM Platform v. 6.5 with APCC Pro #APCC #ASCOM_V2_Driver

Ray,

Here is the proof without a doubt why I was confused about the ASCOM Release Candidate version.

On the attached ASCOM diagnostics window it's written 6.5RC2 - 6.5.0.3035.  Maybe it should be written 6.5.2.3035 if it was a true RC2 version.  My executable file always referred to RC2 during the installation process too.

Hope this will help clarify things.

Regards,
Yves

Again, I don't even think ASCOM 6.5 SP1 has been released, so are you sure there is a 6.5 SP2?
