Why Does Meade LX200ACF Not Show Up In The Starry Night Pro 8 Telescope Configuration Panel (Answer: The Meade ASCOM Driver Not Correctly Installed)

So i try to connect my Meade LX200ACF to my Win 10 laptop with the Meade, USB to Serial adapter, have the Starry Night Pro 8 installed as well as the ASCOM driver. I went to View, Telescope Setup and selected configure, it pop's an ASCOM window up wanting me to select the telescope...of which it is not listed. There is a Dome Control, Simulator, .net simulator and like 2 other choices.

What do i select or what do i need to do or download in addition to sort this out? The SN8 manual doesn't mention anything about an ascom pop-up menu.

Thanks

    You have not successfully installed the Meade Ascom driver.  When that is installed Meade LX200 will be included in the list.  Reboot your computer to clear everything and try again.

    Where do i get that? While i was researching this issue, i did go to Meade and was unable to find any specific Meade ASCOM driver...all Meade had was ver 6.3 of the ASCOM, which i believed to be the whole ASCOM program which is now ver 6.4. 

    Thanks for your reply!
