Update Check failing

Update Check failing
« on: July 04, 2018, 01:22:35 pm »
I was able to successfully install my LII guider last year after several complicated  install procedures.  I installed the version of update check to get my QHY 16200A working, but UpdateCheck doesn't work at all.  It doesn't show any drivers and pressing the button to check the update makes it crash.  I'm running win7 64-bit.

I will continue to go through the install procedure, but please let me know if Update Check is necessary to get my QHY 16200A working. 

EDIT: I followed the default instructions and things seem to be working (though update check does not).  I can take exposures, filter wheel moves correctly, the LII guider works when hooked into the USB plugs on the camera.  One quick thing: does the camera have a temperature setpoint? Or does it just cool to the minimum temp possible?  Just need to be sure I am putting in the filters with the right washers/screws posted in hardware section.

Hi,
    Whether your UpdateCheck has issue suddenly or has this issue all the time?
    And you just need install QHY16200A driver:http://www.qhyccd.com/file/repository/latestSoftAndDirver/Driver/QHY16200ADriverLatestEdition.zip
    Here is some software you maybe need use:

Thank you QinXiaoXu!

I believe Update Check previously was working on my computer because I remember I needed to use to get the QHY5L-II working.

I've installed the software from just the zip files and the QHY 16200A camera seems to be working at my desk (exposure, cooling, filter wheel, USB connection to guider) so things look good.

One quick thing, I can't seem to find the "Temperature Set Point" anywhere in MaximDL now....the QHY manual recommends not cooling at 100% (MaximDL has a nice "warm up" feature" for shutting down but I think it applies 100% cooling when turning on). Perhaps I just forgot where the right button was, but is there a recommended way to turn on the cooler in maxim dl?

Yes the cooler button is working fine, I don't know why I didn't see it the first time; sorry for such a stupid question.

I do see that every time I plug the camera in, there is some device the camera that gets recognized as new but with no driver.  I also see that the QHY 5LII guider seems to get reinstalled every time. And finally I see that I get a connection error *unless* I go into the the advanced window where I can set the offset/gain; once I do that I can connect to the QHY5LII fine (it is plugged into the 16200A).

Is there a device that the system should be installing?

And just wanted to add a screenshot of driver check failing (it shows no drivers on startup and if you click "update" it only gets to 50% before it crashes.

    And for your 5II driver issue,you reinstall 5II camera driver to check if can solve this issue,and you can update camera's driver in device manager.
