When installing the QHY10 ASCOM driver on Windows 7 32bit with ASCOM platform 5.5.1 i get this message: "The ASCOM platform 5 or higher is required for this driver".
Before installing I uninstalled the previous QHY10 ASCOM driver..
My ASCOM platform is properly installed (to my knowledge) and works fine with all other softwares/drivers on my system.

Hello,

       I just checked on a WIN7 32BIT machine but it works no problem. So I think it should the installtion issue of your ascom platform. (maybe old version platform has not been get very clean)You can try to uninstall ascom and install the ASCOM 5.0b plus ASCOM5.5 upgrade package.

Uninstalled ASCOM 5.0b
Uninstalled ASCOM CCDQHY10 1.0.0.3BETA

Installed ASCOM 5.0b
Installed ASCOM 5.5.1 update
Trying to install StarSenSci QHY10 ASCOM driver ERROR: "The ASCOM platform 5 or higher is required for this driver"

Uninstalled ASCOM 5.5.1 Update
Trying to install StarSenSci QHY10 ASCOM driver: Install works fine, no problem!
Installed ASCOM 5.5.1 update
In ASCOM Chooser: "Failed to load driver: Cannot create ActiveX component"

Uninstalled StarSenseSci QHY10 driver
Uninstalled ASCOM 5.5.1 Update

But I want 5.5.1... Maybe it's just my system?

I downloaded the most recent StarSenseSci for the QHY8, installed it and selected it in ImagesPlus.  I did a connect; looked ok.  I tried to capture an image and it simply crashed ImagesPlus.  No error messages.  No warnings.  Just no ImagesPlus any more!?

Is this ASCOM driver actually for the QHY8?  Is there a new set of QHY8 drivers required to be installed to run this ASCOM release?  I also have the old QHY8 ASCOM driver installed and it works well.  Do the two coexist or do I have to uninstall the old ASCOM driver to get the new one to work?  I also have the QHY9C and QHY5 ASCOM drivers installed and they both work.

Running on Windows 7, 64 bit.
