I installed PVcam 2.7.10, ASCOM Platform 6SP3, Nebulosity 2.4, and the driver you wrote.
I tried it in Nebulosity first and it failed to connect.
"cannot load driver ASCOM.Photometrics.Camera"
I then tried it in MaximDL 5 Pro. Everything seemed to be working until I triggered the exposure.
"The Plug-in driver was unable to establish a link to the hardware. (-4)"
Not really sure on the Maxim issue because I then went back to "camera setup" and selected "disconnect" and it behaved just as it does with the direct PVcam, with a little tone as it disconnects.
So then as another check, I connected through the PVcam driver and took a couple dark frames and everything functioned fine.

PVCam installation bug? Old version still lingering, wrong dll being loaded somewhere?
PVCam & Windows Vista/7/8 interaction bug? XP is ok for me.
PVCam & Camera bug? Camera firmware older/different than mine?
I'd go back to the original PVCam version and see if it clears the problem... May very well work with ASCOM driver anyway.
Sorry for the hassle, murphy's law I guess.

without the driver you wrote
MaximDL 5 Pro
If I limit to 9 exposures its fine. If I go to 10... 10 never completes it just sits there with the clock running. in order to recover I have to disconnect (in software) turn off the camera, turn back on>connect(in software)and it works fine (as long as I don't go over 9.
I was doing 10 minute exposures. Home now, gear is in Winthrop, heading back over on Monday for a forecasted clear night... I'll re-install older version monday(and make sure any remenant is Gone)

I see that the last version of MaximDL, 5.24, includes improvements/fixes for the Roper PVCam plugin. One was described as "Fixed problems with subframes".

Howard(if I may), Thank you for developing the driver. This is somthing that has been sorely needed for a long time. I downloaded the driver and will see if I can get it going in nebulosity. Can't thank you enough.

But to fix anything I need to know if/how it's broken first so I like to hear from those who try it out.
