SGP throws error connecting to no observatory

I received the error: "Error connecting to observatory! Sequence attempts to auto slave the observatory on sequence start. Proceeding will not allow the slaving of the observatory to the mount. Would you like to continue anyhow? Yes No."
Selecting Yes produces another pop-up: “Connection error. Error connecting to No observatory …” "OK"
Even though I say “Yes” or “OK” SGP seems to enter an endless loop repeating same two error messages.
I would expect that the program would act on the response I entered, viz. proceed with the sequence ignoring what it perceives as an error.
