Loading ASCOM drivers?

I have an asi130mm camera that I have used with phd , but found I had problems with it after extended guiding and thought it might work better if I load the ASCOM drivers. What is the procedure for doing this , I note their is an ASCOM driver for the camera and an st4 driver for the mount listed under the drivers for this camera at ZWO opticals website. Any help appreciated .
Regards philip

Assuming you don't already have ASCOM installed on your computer, you'll need to go the website and download/install the "ASCOM Platform":

http://www.ascom-standards.org

Once you've done that, you should then be able to install the ASCOM driver for your camera. When you next fire up PHD, you can select ASCOM for the camera and you'll get a pop-up to let you select the ASI.
