  1. OK, that was odd...while I was making that post, the laptop notified me of a major windows update that was ready to install. After it finished and rebooted, when I started BYEOS, I got a "Fingerprint verification error" and had to revalidate the activation key again. Then there was a "EdsInitializeSDK()ERROR!" when trying to connect to camera. So I closed it and got "You have 12 downloaded images queued for process" What?! Then there was a Visual C++ Dbug assertion failed error. After all that, BYEOS then started up normally, and lo and behold, the TCP server is enabled! Connected to camera fine, and AT is now able to connect to BYE. And BYE is now saving settings! I think I have not had any updates for this laptop since I bought it in December, and was getting warning about running out of support. For some reason it finally did an update, fixed my BYE AT issue.
  2. A couple of weeks ago, I had no problem running the TCP server, and Astrotortilla was able to connect to the camera and take pictures. There was no solution, however, so I reinstalled Astrotortilla, and tested it indoors, successfully solving a photo I had taken that previous night. Tonight I went out to test it on sky, and AT can't connect to the camera. I enable the TCP server, save the settings, get the message about restarting BYEOS, which I do. There are no warning from Windows firewall, and when I look at the BYEOS settings, the TCP server is unchecked again. (also changes to take RAW only aren't being saved, I don't really know my way around the Win10 firewall, but poked around in there an found entries for BYEOS that allow it access through to communicate.
  3. Ok, not a problem, I don't mind paying the cost.
  4. So...any chance of a refund?
  5. Well, maybe you are right, sorry. The first time, when I clicked on "apply coupon", nothing seemed to happen. I just went through it again, and this time, it refreshed and the price went to zero. So I bailed out of that, and I'm just using the key from the first time, for which I ended up paying.
  6. I don't understand your answer Guylain. If you can see it was valid, how could it have been copied incorrectly?...I copied and pasted the first line of the old licence.
  7. Well, that didn't work! I entered the first line of my old key as a coupon, and ended up paying full price! What did I do wrong?
  8. OK hold on, I think I found the upgrade instructions in another thread...going through it now...
  9. I'm a long time user of 3.0.2. I bought a new laptop in December and in the process of installing everything on it. I downloaded and installed 3.1.17 but my old licence key does not seem compatible. What my best option? Is there an upgrade I can purchase, or what's the latest version I can install that will accept my old licence key?
  10. I noticed when doing plate solve in AT by File Open Dialog, it only looks for .jpg files and not the .cr2 RAW files that the Canon makes. So I changed the BYEOS setting to save both RAW+JPG Was that necessary?
  11. Yes, but I didn't get any firewall warnings. So I opened port 1499 in Windows Firewall settings, restarted everything, and now it seems to be working. Thanks!
  12. I have BYEOS Premium v 3.0.2. I've installed AT latest v0.6 In BYEOS settings, I checked the box to Enable TCP Server, and the default port is 1499 In AT, I select BackyardEOS for the camera, press Setup, and the defaults there are for the address, and 1499 for the port. But I'm getting Status: Error, and if I click Capture and Solve, Camera error: Failed to connect to BackyardEOS. Is there something I've missed, or need to change?
