Trying to run ekos for the first time in win 10, local mode is disabled (grey button).
I would like to use ekos on a laptop with all devices connected on it, so i need a local mode.
Wizar let me choose " devices connected to this computer" but in profiles local mode remains disabled.
How can i fix this issue? Is possible run ekos in local mode over win10?
Many thanks.

When you used the wizard, it asked you specifically to download INDI Server for Windows. This is the only way to use INDI "locally" on a Windows machine. Note that INDI Server for Windows does not support all functionality as it performs ASCOM-2-INDI translation and many features are missing. If you install INDI Server for Windows and have it up and running, then just set the IP address to 127.0.0.1 and port to 7624 and Ekos should connect to the local INDI server for windows.

INDI Server for Windows must be started and already connected to your devices. But all what I said above is already mentioned in the Ekos wizard anyway.
