Hi Luka,

thanks: the dll was there. I have uninstalled the driver using Control Panel, then reinstalled again, but I still cannot connect to the camera. Here is the error message from ASCOM diagnostics:

Create              Creating device
SetupError          Creating an instance of the COM component with CLSID {677DF06A-D784-4A3B-9028-D597E58131A4} from the IClassFactory failed due to the following error: 8007000b An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007000B).
Dispose             Disposing of device
Dispose             Completed disposal of device
From the ASCOM homepage, it seems that there might be some issue with security in one of the latest Windows updates. Unfortunately I cannot install the suggested update, so I am stuck! I have also noticed that the error code I get is the same one I was getting when trying to connect my camera using wINDI: in that case, the solution was to run wINDI as administrator, so a security issue makes sense. I will try troubleshooting a bit more in this direction.

Any suggestion is welcome!
