Quote:OK I've got a new CGE and the nextstar program that came with the mount does not work with vista. I have googled and I see there is a vista version out. Do I go through my dealer that I bought the scope from or do I go through celestron to get a registered version. I can't beleive I would have to buy the program again to get the vista version. Has anybody else upgraded?

Quote:Rod, I did see some of that stuff, and some of it I don't really need. I had been wanting to try NexRemote out for some time, and I'm glad I did. Keep in mind I am strictly astrophotography. My problem was with doing my alignments, and I don't really want to add a gamepad
Quote:Now you have me shopping for a gamepad....
Quote:I had the same problem - no liscence key anywhere I had to call Celestron CS (no small feat) and then through email (mucho easier once recognized) fax them my receipts and etc. A few days later "bingo" I have a key number - and was assured I could download the 'Vista' version and it would work (why they are not shipping it is beyond me, as is much else). All went well, but I think they dont put keys on the covers all the time for some reason... It was 'a hassle' and through the process I learned my "registration" was pretty much meaningless.
Quote:I've looked on the Celestron website and all I found was a download NexRemote v. 1.6.25. Is this the right one? I downloaded it and installed. I don't think it liked my Vista 64. Does anyone know of another download?
Quote:I don't think any work on Vista 64, at least not as of a few months ago - the new release was for Vista 32 only...
