Hi,
I have been having problems with ASCOM drivers on my PC. I installed ASCOM, ZWO ASCOM Drivers and ZWO drivers. But I'm getting the following error no matter what I try.

Thank you for your help.

Kind regards.

Hi,
Please check if there is a ASCOM.ASICamera2.dll file under this path :C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\ASCOM\Camera\ZWO。
If not, make sure the installation is correct and complete 。
Thanks
chad

I uninstalled ASCOM platform, ASCOM drivers, ZWO drivers, removed the cameras from devices deleting the drivers with it then reinstalled all of them and it's still the same.

Hi,
Please try this.

Start -> all softwares -> ASCOM Platform 6 -> Tools -> ASCOM Diagnostics.

In the ASCOM Diagnostics, you can get the ASCOM Version, like mine:
ASCOM Platform 6.1 SP1 - 6.1.12627

Then you can click the "ChooseDevice". It has 2 options, the first is for X64, the second is for x86. You can try both.
You will get a "Device Connection Tester" Dialog, Please select the device type as camera, then click the Choose button, Select the ASI Camera. This will help you check whether ASCOM drives and ZWO drivers are properly installed.
If you still get the error info, Please click the "Run Diagnostics" button in ASCOM Diagnostics dialog.
Then send the log to us.
Thanks
chad

Hi Chad,
The screenshot I sent in the original post is straight from the screen you mentioned. I'm sending you a fresh diagnostics report. Thank you so much for your help!

Hi everyone,
I finally found the solution and notified the ZWO crew about it.

The problem was about the faulty registry records on Windows. The DLL paths should be starting with "C:/Program Files..." but in my case it was like "file:///C:/Program Files..." or "file://C:/Program Files..." , so after a bulk delete of the "file:///" string from the registry entries, everything is now working fine.

In case someone else has this problem, this is the way to deal with it.

Cheers.
