sharpcap v 3.2.6128.0 asking for new QHY driver

Post by stbkaiser » Fri Nov 08, 2019 4:28 am

Hi Robin
Using a Windows 10 pro 64 bit PC,
I am using your software with a QHY247C camera.
I just installed your new Sharpcap pro software , sharpcap v 3.2.6128.0 , 64bit.
I am getting a warning when I start your software
" your current system driver version is 18-3-30 but the software need version 19-10-3 or later, maybe you need get the latest system driver from HTTP//www.qhyccd.com/ "
Any help on this?

I still seems to run ok, at least for some short , indoor testing.
Thanks
Stephen

https://www.qhyccd.com/index.php?m=cont ... d=14&cut=2 offers the download for drivers dated 191107 for the 247C. The older driver may not offer full functionality plus the later driver may contain bug fixes (or introduce new bugs). If you encounter any issues, then any technical support operation would direct you to the latest drivers as a starting point for resolution. Also as SharpCap is upgraded with later QHY SDKs it would be prudent to keep step - you have had a warning message about later drivers required from SharpCap.

An upgrade is up to you but short indoor testing is not true use of the camera.

Thanks for the reminder on that.
Downloaded latest from QHY and no more warnings.
I've been distracted lately with the TEC on the QHY randomly locking up and stopping my imaging sesions.
This has happened while using Sharpcap, EZCAP, and APT.
Maybe this new driver from QHY will solve that.
Thanks Again
Take care
Steve

Thanks Steve. It would be useful if you can report back on if the TEC issue goes away with the new driver.
