I’ve used SGPro since the fall of last year. This January I upgraded my computer to a Dell Inspiron 3000 with Win 8.1. Nice computer, no complaints. Current build of SGPro is 188.8.131.52.
Yesterday I received guidance from the gurus on proper selection of the filter for the plate solve imaging process. Once straight on what I needed to do, I opened and closed SGPro several times to make sure I understood the approach. All was well.
Last night I attempted to start SGPro and it failed to do so. This was not SGPro hanging during the startup procedure, but rather a refusal for the program to begin. There was no logfile created.
An uninstall and re-install did no good. My gut tells me this is a problem related to the computer’s registry. I’ve never been in there.
I’ve had one other experience similar to this with my old XP and a Canon utility. The solution in that case was to re-install windows.
Any and all suggestions short of a computer OS reinstall would be appreciated.
