How to start BYEOF



So i just downloaded the free BYEOF to test and am trying to start the program.

I get a popup box asking for Licence (which is blank) and my O-telescope login name.

I enter the login name in the identifier field and try to validate but the licence key field is blank?

Any ideas what to do please?

Did you request a trial key -or- did you simply downloaded the software?

You need a key... the download is just that, a file download.

Go to the store and add a trial in your cart and proceed to checkout to get you key instantly.

These instructions are included/displayed on the file download page.

EDIT: If you already requested a trial key you can access it in "My Purchases -> Orders" here on the website... set top menu.

The M100 is not supported and if Canon butchered the software connectivity with the M100 as they did with the early versions of the M series it will never work as Canon has disabled the possibility to take pictures while tethered to a computer.

Please read the camera support grid on the trial page... scroll down and select the camera tab for the supported cameras.

Ya, i just found on your site the matrix of supported cameras and bingo no mirrorless support.

Which is also true for Canon's own software EOS utilities, can do from smart phone but no can do from PC.



Which is major pain as purposely bought this camera as it will fit between the forks of a Meade LX90 when vertical and 450D etc won't.

Doh..... I'll test out the phone app before it's on ebay, which is pity as fits in pocket a treat.

Think nasty letter to Mr. canon is brewing in my mind 😞

I'll check out the Nikon range to see what i can find, they won't let me down as always bought there cameras before the A640 and this M100

As this BYEos licence i have is no use for now can it be suspended until i find a fix please. 

Many thanks for all your help..
