Any tips on installing SBIG drivers for Windows 10? Is there any free software that might help SBIG products.

I recently bought a used SBIG 2000XM. I haven't had a chance to use it and wondering if I should get some additional drivers to make it a much smoother ride. Also, the website I used showed that the drivers were only compatible up to windows 8 but the previous owner had it on windows 10 (Website hasn't been updated in about 6 years on that page). I currently want to keep the software free so that I can continue to save money for a new OTA Schmitt Cass telescope. Anything helps. 

 

Thank you all.

I found you have to install SBIG drivers as administrator. Right click on the installer, and select run as administrator.

The drivers are on the Diffraction Limited website.  What may be confusing is that there is no ASCOM driver to SBIG cameras. https://diffractionl.../sbig-archives/ is the link to the old drivers.
