Astrotortilla Plate Solving Configuration - Can't find Solve-Field

Post by poolemarkw » Mon May 13, 2019 11:57 am

I want to use the Plate Solving function of SharpCap and just successfully installed Astrotortilla for plate solving (into the default installation location) and it runs when invoked. My next step was to open SharpCap to configure it for plate solving. I opened the SharpCap Settings area and the "Plate Solving" tab. SharpCap is not able to find the "solve-field" executable, nor can I find it if I browse through the Astrotortilla installation folder. Any idea where I can find it?

UPDATE: I just found it. I performed the installation of Astrotortilla (and cygwin comes with it) using a system administrator account and that's where the solve-field file was located. I had to grant access to that folder to my general user account. So for the benefit of others, the solve-field file was located in c:/users/AdminAccount/Appdata/local/cygwin_ansvr/bin/solve-field

Thanks,

Mark
