ASCOM Platform is the standard astronomical equipment driver for Windows.

Install the latest ASCOM platform and the drivers you need from or from your equipment manufacturer.

With Alpaca you can use the device remotely, from another Windows computer, or from a computer running Linux or macOS. To get started install the ASCOM Remote Server on the Windows computer where the devices are connected.

A very important point when using Windows astronomy software is to
NEVER run anything as administrator
this is the source of many issue when accessing shared resources like a ASCOM driver. No current software need that despite the popularity of this false advice in astronomy forum.
