    Default FocusMax & RCOS TCC -- FocusMax Will Not Close

    Anyone else have an issue with FocusMax NOT closing? It will even forbid Maxim to close. And eventually it will lead to a system crash.

    It appears that it has to do with the connection to the TCC.... I've tried it both ways, using the RCOS TCC.exe and the RCOS_ae.exe.

    If the system doesn't evenually crash, I need to kill the process in taskmgr.

    In my startup script, I AM connecting to the TCC temperature object and turning on the primary cooling fans.

    So several questions....

    - Anyone else experiencing this issue?
    - What do you have in settings for FocusMax -- Connect automatically? I like to have FocusMax turn on/off the Temperature Compensation

    Note, I do not use the Aquire Star feature within FocusMax.

    Thanks.

    I figured it out....

    I have to force some settings in my shutdown script:

    'FocusMax settings
    Dim FMx
    Set FMx = CreateObject("FocusMax.Focuser")
    'Since we have a link, we can do some things...
    If FMx.Link = True Then

    If FMx.TempCompAvailable = True Then
    FMx.TempComp = False
    End If

    If FMx.TempComp = False Then
    Console.PrintLine("FocusMax Temp Compensation has been turned off.")
    Else
    Console.Printline("**** FocusMax Temp Compensation has not been turned off. ****")
    End If
    End If

    FMx.Link = False 'disconnect to the RCOS focuser
