Anyone have issues with Starnet 2 and the new update?

All of a sudden Pixinsight doesn't want to keep Starnet 2 loaded so I have to install it every time I start Pixinsight now.

If I try to image solve with Starnet 2 loaded the program crashes to the desktop every time.

I've tried on a couple different images and the same thing happens on all of them.

If I image solve first and then load Starnet 2 it works fine.

I've uninstalled Pixinsight and reinstalled.

This is on Windows 10 build 22H2.

Its likely that Starnet 2 needs to be updated to run on the current build.

That could be it.

I know now a lot of people don't run Starnet any more...just us old broke guys.

Funny that I haven't seen any other posts about it though.

Thanks Jim

 

edit, BTW...Starnet works fine after loading it.

For what it's worth, I just installed the latest PI and Starnet 2 on an M1 Mac.... wanted to check out the new GradientCorrection tool. So far, all seems to be working fine.

I ended up uninstalling the new version and went back to the last version.

Funny thing, the new gradient correction tool showed up in the older version and works fine
