If you have a camera with a guide output or have a Shoestring adapter, no drivers are needed. You guide through the autoguider port on the scope, not the serial port.

IOW, if you are using the autoguide port on the control panel, you do not use serial cables or drivers; just an ST4 cable connected to the camera's guide output.
