Hi again ==

I was trying to download ACP Planner to check into that as I also have a licence for TSXPro.
The ACP download page has the Planner download link. Also note that TheSky by default does not register its COM interfaces as needed by Planner. So one time only, start TheSky "as Administrator". Right click on TheSky.exe and select Run as Administrator. Let it come up and sit for 30 seconds. Now exit. Do not set it to always run "as Administrator" (and that goes for all of our software and MaxIm as well, no administrator!).

One further question - does plate solving always start first with Pinpoint and fall back to astrometry.net?
Yes if you allow it in the settings:
