I have an LX850 and am attempting to update my Autostar II. My computer is HP Windows 7. The Updater is version 6. The Updater is confirming that it is connected to Autostar II, but when I hit "Upgrade Autostar Software Now", I get an error message and it gives me the option to search the WWW for a solution and close, or just close the program. I also have an HP Windows 8. That computer will not connect with Autostar II at all.
When I had my LX200GPS and was using Windows XP, (pre Y2K) I had no problem upgrading Autostar. Is this simply an issue of the updater not being compatible with anything newer than Windows 97 or XP? if not, what is the problem?
