    Default ASCOM platform driver-profile store was corrupted and needed a clean install

    The long running issue of not being able to configure the Pulsar ASCOM dome driver, which prompted Nick to ask if it was possible to use TheSkyX X2 Pulsar dome driver as an alternative, appeared to be caused by a corrupted ASCOM platform driver/profile store, no matter how one attempted to remove the existing Pulsar dome driver and install a new copy it proved impossible to launch the Pulsar dome driver settings dialogue from any ASCOM application.

    The only option that fixed the issue was to use the ASCOM developers complete-uninstall-everything tool and start afresh with a clean Platform.

    The downside is that all astronomy applications that used an ASCOM driver and stored settings in the platform will need to have the ASCOM driver re-installed and it's associated settings re-configured.

    The Pulsar ASCOM dome driver is now working correctly and can be configured without errors in both MaxIm's Observatory setup (standalone for testing) and ACP.
