- Oct 28, 2013Hello Warp
I have had problems lately in both Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 of getting a blue
screen while using either DSI Pro, DSI2C or DSI III Pro. I don't know what
the problem is but when the computer reboots I usually am able to continue
with the same setup I was using before. I don't remember but I may have had
several instances of this occurring in one session. I am using Win 8 and
8.1 on a Surface and have extreme problems getting my Orion Star Shoot Auto
Guider to be recognized. I read that it is Microsofts implementation of USB
3.0 as far as the SSAG problem goes.
In Win 7 I use a Toshiba Core I7 based laptop and get the same behavior
with the DSI and Envisage but it seems not to be so often. I don't remember
now if I was using USB 3.0 port or USB 2.0 but I will make it a point to
check it out on both next time I use the DSI. I have not been able to get
beyond connecting to the DSI on my HP Desktop before getting the blue
screen. I haven't tried much beyond reinstalling Envisage v7.09 on the desk
top and still get the same results. I don't know the problem but I only use
the desktop to check the DSIs in house. I just get the laptop out now if I
have the need for in house testing.
I use a DSLR most of the time now except on the ETX 125.

Does anyone have any experience or have you used Windows 8 with the Meade
Envisage software and DSI cameras? What are the compatibility issues if any
that you have run into?
Thanks in advance for any info.
