Re: I cannot connect the AP V2 driver using APCC #APCC #Mach2GTO

I had the same problem for a while and reported it. It happened again last night. What happens is the v2 driver is
not closing properly from your previous shut down.
The driver cannot close itself if an application is still connected to the driver. Also, if you "kill" an application connected to the driver, or that application crashes, then the application never properly disconnected from the driver and the driver cannot shut itself down.

So, you should be careful to disconnect all applications from the driver. It will automatically close when all clients disconnect, including APCC, if it was connected to the driver. If you need to forcibly shut down the driver because of an ASCOM client application crash you can double click the "Clients" label in the driver's window.
