      I have a similar issue except my error pop up states "Failed to find the ascom scope chooser component; Is it installed?". I ran as Admin, uninstalled, reinstalled as Admin, and have ran it as Admin each time. I also did not get the option as shown above to actually install the ACSOM platform. Please help; this "out of the box" experience is very disappointing. My StarSense arrives in a few days and I would like this to be ready and waiting. Thank you!
