Hi, how have you guys who runs win 10 set up Windows update and how is it working for you?
I am thinking of ftdi drivers etc.
Have you turned Windows update off completely?

My W10 seems ok. When it says updates are there I ignore them but eventually it will take over and do the update.
I believe it is impossible to turn off updates.
A friend with W10 has huge problems. Nearly every update makes some software crash - often his internet browsers.
He has had professional IT people try to help but problems persist.

I found this on the web:

 

https://www.easeus.c...lly-update.html

 

As I don't (yet!) use Win10, I haven't tested any of the four methods listed to stop updates, but the second looked promising. Worth a try if you haven't already done so.

 

Best of luck - and any feedback may help everyone!

Hi

 

I run everything under windows 10. Had to switch all astronomy programs to run in admin mode in order to communicate with each other. Takes some extra clicks but it seems to work. Without admin i can't connect TheSky X to Autoslew and Sequence opens a new instance of the ACC focuser app and Maxim DL. As long as everything runs as admin it works fine. I just got my DDM60 pro back from ASA (bearing problems). They also did an update on the firmware of the mount. I had some problems with usb resets before under windows 10. This is solved, i never lost connection to the mount again.

 

 

The best solution would probably be a second PC or laptop running windows 10 to test the asa software with the mount. however, as always with windows there is no guarantee that e.g. usb works on different pc's the same way...

 

Good luck!

 

Dani

Just in case that you run into troubles with the USB-Connection under Windows 10: It seems that Win10 enables USB energy saving by default. This can be disabled in the system settings. I strongly suggest to do this. We just had a lot of problems at the office with speech recognition because of this setting.

Thanks for all tips and tricks.
I think my new computer is set to serve me well.

  1. Windows update was run a couple of times before i started to install all the softwares (Ascom, Autoslew, Sequence, Maxim DL, drivers etc.) and after all sofware was installed, i turned Windows update off
     
  2. USB Sleep disabled
     
  3. Energy settings set to not turn off hdd, hibernate pc and such settings.

Anything else i might have missed?

In the windows update settings you can change the usertimes, in which period the PC will not update or restart. In that way you will not have to disable updates totally.
