Setup ANSVR when auto detect does not find it

Post by directgumby » Thu Sep 12, 2019 4:29 pm

Hello,

I noticed when I installed SharpCap 3.2 on my system it auto found AstroTortilla - I'm not sure if that was due to a different app already installing it and/or if SharpCap came with it. regardless of how it arrived on my system, I wanted to give ANSVR a try. So, I did the install but the auto detection sill listed AstroTortilla. Thus, I put in the location manually to be:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Astrometry.net Local Solver

I am not sure if that is sufficient for ANSVR to work or not.

Any help or thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks,
brett

Hi,

Use the browse button next to the manual entry and browse to the 'solve-field' file which will be in the installation directory for ansvr somewhere. Once you click okay the manual location box should show the full path and filename to that file.

Cheers, Robin
