Failed to find ASCOM

Hi All
Have new EQ6, Orion Starshoot, Nebulocity 2 and Latest PHD Guiding. Tried to connect mount to camera via PHD and recieved error report "Failed to find ASCOM. Make sure it is installed".
Reloaded all software twice inc update to latest PHD, checked all cables but still same error.

Any suggestions please

If you have the mount connected to the Camera via ST4 cable then select "Mount -> On-camera" in PHD, you don't need ASCOM connection for ST4.

But still, if you have ASCOM installed you shouldn't get that error message though... Are you using EQMOD for the mount? that'll need ASCOM.
Run Ascom diagnostic tool to see if you can get telescope chooser up and running.
