I am currently evaluating the trial version of BackyardNikon in Windows 8 Pro running on VMware. I have a D800E and D7200 that initially connect quickly and all controls appear to work as designed. After about an hour of imaging the program either disconnects or freezes. It's difficult to tell what is happening as the control panel is stopped and unresponsive to any input. In one instance with the D800E, I acquired about 1.5 hours of lights (70 sec subs) and switched to taking darks and after about 10 images the program stopped. In all instances I can still see the PHD guiding program behind it working normally. The only way to clear the problem is to shut down Windows and restart the Mac.
Cameras are connected to the computer directly through a USB2 slot using Tethertools 15' cables. I use the cables with a different Mac-based imaging program and they consistently work through the night ofv imaging without interruption.
I can send along the log files if that may be helpful.
