Celestron Driver not found for telescope control

Originally from ticket #6920.

I downloaded the ASCOM software that came with my Starry Night Software. I downloaded the software for my Celestron telescope and in StarryNight it says that there is no plug in found in the Plug-ins folder. I looked for the plug-in in the folder, and it's no where to be found. How can I put the plug-in in the correct folder?
Thanks

    Hi Joseph,

     

    Please right-click your Starry NIght program and choose "Run as Admin"

     

    Does that work for you?

    What version of Starry Night  Pro Plus are you running?  Look in Help ---> About Starry Night.  You need to be running the latest.  Please update your program here:

    Please let me know if this helps.

    The latest version is 6.4.3.

     

    There are two updates available.  One for 6.3.3 and one for 6.4.3.  If you are running less than 6.3.3 apply the 6.3.3 update first, then the 6.4.3 update.

    I upgraded to 6.4.3 tried to start the application and it says Preference folder can't be opened. Throw it away and start it again.

    Is anyone out there running OS 10.7.5 with a AVX mount? I can't get it to connect . It's plugged into the hand control I'm using a keyspan model # 19HS  and can't  find a option on the configure window. Where am I going wrong?
