MX716/7C Vista 64bit Drivers - Beta Testers Wanted
I'm cross posting this from the StarlightXpress yahoo group, for those
who have this camera but don't read that group.
I'm looking for anyone who owns the StarlightXpress MX716 or 7C range of
CCD cameras with the USB1.1 interface and has access to a 64bit
installation of Windows Vista.
Anyone with access to the above and willing to beta test a new set of
drivers for this camera can obtain the drivers and installation
instructions at the below URL
installation instructions are also available:
What does testing involve? Simply installing the drivers and seeing if
you can take images using whatever software you'd normally use with your
MX716/7C camera, be it Star_MX7, AstroArt, MaximDL or some other
package. Then reporting the success or failure to myself so that I can
fix any issues encountered.
I've run my own tests using the Star_MX7 application but would also like
to hear from anyone who could test with the full version of Astro Art or
If anyone can help out with this I'd greatly appreciate it. Feel free to
report problems here or email me directly. I'd also appreciate an email
if you try the drivers and have no problems at all. Any extra
information you can provide regarding how much you tested the drivers
and with which software will also be of use.
NOTE: These are 64bit Vista drivers ONLY. If you have a 32bit OS you
should continue to use the official StarlightXpress drivers.
You can tell whether you have Vista 64bit or not by clicking
start/control panel/System and Maintenance/view ram and processor speed
Then look at the "System Type:" entry, it should say 64-bit Operating
Thanks in advance,
