    Hello all,
    Is there a way to compile sbigudrv.dll to get a 64 bits version ?
    I do not think this is a big deal, especially if parallel port camera are not supported in this 64 bit version of the DLL.
    Thanks

    Hi Cyril, we need some more information from you.
    What camera(s)?
    You mention Parallel interface - which cannot be supported since Windows XP, back around 2002.

    What do you need a 64-bit version for, and what operating system, and what application?
    Are you compiling your own application?
    The current version of the SBIGudrv.dll runs fine under 32-bit Windows or the Windows-on-Windows subsystem on 64-bit machines.

    I'm the author of PRISM software (www.prism-astro.com)
    I intend to release PRISM 64 bits compiled that can uses all camera in the market. My idea is to give up 32 bits PRISM version. I have all camera like ZWO, QHY, QSI, ATIK that works well as 64 bit native DLL.
    SBIG camera like STL or small guider camera are still widely used (all usb cameras prior Cyanogen acquired SBIG) and it looks like there is no ASCOM 64 bits compliant driver nor a native sbigudrv.dll 64 bits version.

    Hi Cyril,

    The x64 binary of 4.99.8 of SBIGUDrv is available for download here. It was built using MSVC 2017. Note: we do not distribute this binary as a part of SBIG Driver Checker 64.

    Cheers,
    -Adam

    Will this 64-bit driver work with TheSkyX and Sequence Generator Pro, both of which have 64-bit versions? If so, what's needed to make it work?

    Contact the manufacturer of the software programs and ask them.
    If they have questions, they can contact us.
    I believe Software Bisque is shipping a 64-bit version of the SBIG driver with the 64-bit version of TheSky X.
    Again, check with Software Bisque.

    Update:
    Software Bisque has included our 64-bit driver in the latest Daily Build of TheSky X Professional Edition (64 Bit), so you don't need to do anything - it just works.
    The exact version is:
    TheSky Version 10.5.0 Build 12978 (64-bit)
    and it includes SBIGUDrv.dll 4.9.9.8 (64-bit)
