    Default ACP not Connecting to SkyX

    Using the latest version of SkyX, ACP v7.2 build 5, I am unable to connect to the SkyX after just installing and configuring. An error from ACP results: "The SkyX was selected, but it does not appear to be installed or configured for scripting. SkyX will independently connect just fine to the Paramount ME but not thru ACP.

    I do not see anywhere in SkyX for enabling scripting. Is my old version of ACP not compatible with SkyX? Any help will sure be appreciated.

    Hi Gary -- A bit behind on support but what the heck. TheSky has not been completely installed, so, to fix this:

    (1) Locate TheSkyX.exe probably at C:\Program Files (x86)\Software Bisque\TheSkyX Professional Edition\TheSkyX.exe
    (2) Right click > Run as Administrator (this is a 1-time admin run!)
    (3) Let it completely come up till you can see the displays etc.
    (4) Exit

    Now Connect from ACP. If this still has problems:

    ACP > Telescope Menu > Setup > See ASCOM Telescope Driver for TheSky > Properties
