I have an old Boyd observatory which I have completely restored and improved.  It is automated.  Last winter, wasps decided to “winter “ in the observatory by the thousands.  Personal illness and such, would not let me restore things until recently.  In the past, I used the original PC Dome software from Brent Boshart.   I also used the POTH software.  My computer had to be replaced and it is now a 64bit Windows 10 machine with 3 serial ports.   I still have the PC Dome software and I can get it to connect with the scope (CPC 1100) but not with the dome controller.   I have changed the port numbers, but with out any positive results.   Does anyone know if the controller will work with 64bit?  Is there another Microsoft network app needed?  I have reinstalled the ASCOM diagnostics and everything appears correct, but how do I open POTH?   Any ideas or suggestions are greatly appreciated. 

Thanks,
Bill Stiver
