Lodestar X2 device drivers


#1

I am setting up a new Windows 10 Pro computer for the observatory and needed to install the device drivers for my Lodestar X2. I went to the SX web site and downloaded the ASCOM driver installer and the 64bit camera drivers. The ASCOM driver installed with no issues but the camera drivers would not install. Windows 10 said they were not digitally signed and it would not install them.

Anyone else seen this problem?

Yeah, this happens with their drivers. Use the “advanced boot” (option two) descibed here. Worked for me.

Thanks for the link. Worked fine. A little disappointed that SX does provide signed drivers since that is now the default mode of Windows 10.

Yes, the 64bit driver on that page is what I downloaded around 3PM Saturday. This package failed to install with the “no digital signature error” under Windows 10 Pro.

Yep. Those worked just fine. Must have been suffering from target fixation :frowning:

I saw the “64bits USB2.0…” line and never noticed the reference above it.

Thanks for the clarification.
