Is Indi server for windows and for that matter Kstars/Ekos for windows still active programs? I have tried Indi server for windows and ran into a problem with the Rigel nstep focuser. This device has a working Ascom driver in Windows which works fine with SGPro and also APT but the Indi server chokes on it and reports an error in the Ascom driver. Anyone else experiencing this problem. Thanks
Kstars/Ekos on Windows is a very active program. It is an open source, community driven program. Basically the same code in KStars is used on Mac, Windows, and Linux. There are new commits every single day from multiple people: github.com/KDE/kstars/commits/master. There are new stable versions released for windows every few months with the last one released in December: edu.kde.org/kstars/
In fact if you want to test the latest code, you can download a nightly build. binary-factory.kde.org/job/KStars_Nightly_win32/
As for the program INDIServer for Windows, I assume you mean the Cloudmakers program? That is produced by a private company called Cloudmakers. You would need to check with them.
Thanks for the reply. I contacted Cloudmakers and they said they no longer maintain Indi Server for Windows. No updates have been made in 2 years. They have switched to something called Indigo. This information might be useful for others who try the all Windows route.
AFAIK indigo is only for Linux...and Mac OS..do t think it runs on Windows..

Thank you for your help. I am enclosing 2 log files, one from Indi Server for Windows and another from Kstars/Ekos. The problem device is the Rigel nstep focus motor. It conects just fine in my Windows programs such as SGP Pro or APT using Ascom but errors off using Indi Sever for Windows. My mount is the EQ5 running EQMOD. The mount is assigned a com port of 3 and the Rigel nstep also uses a com port of 4. In the Indi Control under the Options tab there is a setting called Interface and it is set to 8.
