MaxIM DL 5 SBIG issue

I have been using MaxIM DL for acquisition for years. Since upgrading to Win 10, I can CONNECT my SBIG, but if I try to ACQUIRE, I continually get an Error 5, which according to Diffraction LTD, is a bad camera command.

I recently ran the SBIG driver checker and that seemed to have no difference. I uninstalled SBIGUDRV.dll and reinstalled as per Diffractions suggestion - no difference. The cam works fine in CCDOps, Nebulosity etc so am pulling my hair out with this one. I run MaxIM as admin, and have tried it in Win 7 compatibility too.

I am happy to use CCDOps, but after having paid all those BIG bucks for the pro suite years ago, I feel a bit miffed.

Any ideas?

Hi Lewis

You could pay the fee for the upgrade and see if that helps? That way if it's still an issue you have support available. Raise a ticket with them and see what comes back.
