Hmmm.. and also I can't get passed the password on the upgrade and the camera plugin driver etc whats up with that?? I didnt even rememebr there was one
SLC Help please
UAC or other AV software is preventing successful installation of CCDSoft (or removing required Registry entries "after installation").

If you need the CCDSoft installer password, and/or the CCDSoft Camera Plug In password, please register your serial numbers, and we'll go from there.

Here is a screen shot - my install Key for CCDsoft purhcased through SBIG is XXXXXXXXX. The program keep opening up under Vista and asking this - about 50% of time it goes the other route where it needs the Key instead of asking for a password, none of the CCD upgrades ask for key they all ask for password hmmmmmmm....
The CCDSoft installers and updaters are working as expected. Here are some critical distinctions between the CCDSoft Version 5 full installer and the update:
In general, if the CCDSoft installation application that you run does not request a password and serial number, then you're running the CCDSoft updater (not the full installer), or the full installer has determined that CCDSoft is already installed on the computer, and does not ask for the SN again.
If the installer asks for a password, the you're attempting to run the CCDSoft Version 5 Full Installer, not the CCDSoft Version 5 Latest Update.
I hope this makes sense.
Any any rate, I've privately emailed you the CCDSoft Version 5 Full Installer password.
Hi...I had the exact same problem with Apogee32.dll under Windows 7. After shutting down the UAC CCDSoft installed and ran.. BUT, when I then installed the CCDSoft update, now it NO LONGER runs and immediately crashes with a "Program cannot start because Eigenval2.dll is missing from your computer" message...
I know you said that CCDSoft is compatible with Windows 7 so I figure there is a simple issue here. Please let me know as I am using all this with my remote observatory and new laptop to run it which currently cant!
Please install the CCDSoft Version 5 Latest Update.
I read the first link in your response above and it does not appear to match my situation. I have CCDSOFT working now, but I would like to know what caused the problem.
I had the hard drive on my laptop replaced and so I needed to reinstall CCDSOFT. When I tried to launch CCDSOFT I got an error message that said it cannot find Apogee32.dll. I have CCDSOFT on my desktop and so I went into it to find out where the dll is located (it was in program files(86)>common files>system). I copied Apogee32.dll to my thumb drive and then copied it to my laptop. CCDSOFT now launches and seems to work like it should, but why was I missing this dll file? I do not have an anti-virus program running (I'm still reinstalling all the programs after the hard drive was replaced) and do not have any other kind of computer program installed (like PC(?) Doctor).
Earlier today I sent a message that either you did not get (which means you won't get this one) or else it hasn't been approved for the forum yet. I wanted to know why the re-install of CCDSOFT could not find an Apogee32.dll file. I just found out why. I had purchased an ST-8XME camera from SBIG in 2007. I re-installed CCDSOFT from the disk that came with it. After I sent my previous message I was in the process of getting the St-i camera to work and discovered I had a more recent disk with CCDSOFT on it (it came with the ST-i camera). What I did was delete the Apogee32.dll file in
Program files (86x) > Common Files > System
and then re-ran the install using the newer disk. The newer disk added the Apogee32.dll to the System folder. I was able to launch CCDSOFT. Apparently, the 2007 disk did not have the Apogee32.dll file as part of the install program, but the newer disk does.
