OS: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
I have recently rebuilt my imaging computer and ended up with a fresh install of SGP which I updated to 390 before I actually used it.
While configuring PlateSolve2, I found that the catalog directory locations as not retained, and so SGP cannot successfully solve using PlateSove2. This is likely only an issue for those of us who did a fresh install on a very recent beta.
Here is a workaround:
In C:\Users<username>\AppData\Local\SequenceGenerator, there is another copy of PlateSovle2.exe. Execute this copy and set the catalog directory locations. SGP will now be able to solve with PlateSolve2 successfully.
Steps to Reproduce this Issue
Step 1: Open the Plate Solve tab in Control Panel
Step 2: Select PlateSolve2 as the Plate Solving Interface
Step 3: Click the Settings button
Step 4: In the PlateSolve 2.29 windows click File->Configure Catalog Directories
Step 5: In the resulting window, set your directies to whatever they should be (other than the default profile locations). Note the “Status OK” for each directory
Step 6: Close the Configure PlateSolve Catalog Directories windows
Step 7: Close the Plate Solve application.
Step 8: Repeat Steps 3 and 4 and see that the directories are not set to what you just set them to.
Step 9 (Optional): Try a plate solve and get the error informing you that the APM directory cannot be found.
