You seem to be saying that you are unable to connect BYN's ASCOM Telescope or Focuser control to CPWI to allow you to adjust the telescope pointing and the focuser position from BYN.

Do you have the ASCOM Platform installed? This must be installed before CPWI in order for the CPWI ASCOM drivers to be installed. If you can see the drivers in the ASCOM Chooser then this is not your problem.

Installing the ASCOM Platform installs other applications like ASCOM Device Hub (Platform version 6.5 or later) and POTH (all previous version of ASCOM, but optional with ASCOM 6.5) that you can try to use to connect with CPWI. If these fail, you need to post the details of what you are doing and what you are seeing to forums that support ASCOM or CPWI. Once these issues are resolved, BYN with a Premium license will connect to CPWI.

You have not provided any description of what you see when you try to connect, so it is difficult to provide any help.

Can you see your drivers listed in the ASCOM Chooser? If yes, are you sure that the driver setup dialog (the Chooser's Properties button) are set to correctly configure the drivers.

Have you tried the Connection Tester in the ASCOM Diagnostics program?

Have you looked at the ASCOM or driver log files?

I suggested posting to CPWI or ASCOM support forums because those forums would likely describe your issue to the largest audience that would have the expertise that would be helpful to solving your issue.
