Subject: Andor shamrock not detected

Hi,

I have trouble talking to Andor shamrock spectrograph.
It fails after calling Andor API:

error = ShamrockGetNumberDevices(&numDevices);

because numDevices evaluates to < 1.

If I try with Andor supplied C example it works fine, I can control
the spectrograph.

Here is what the example does for initialization - and it does not
look any different, AFAICT, from what EPICS AD Andor support does:


        //Initialize CCD
        error = Initialize("/usr/local/etc/andor-2.102.30001.0");
        if(error!=DRV_SUCCESS){
                cout << "Initialisation error: " << error << "
...exiting" <<endl;
                return(1);
        }
        cout << "Camera ready!" << endl;
        //Initialize Shamrock CCD
        error = ShamrockInitialize("");
        if(error!=SHAMROCK_SUCCESS){
                cout << "Initialisation error: " << error << "
...exiting" <<endl;
                ShutDown();
                return(1);
        }
        cout << "Shamrock ready!" << endl;
        int nodevices(0);
        ShamrockGetNumberDevices(&nodevices);
        if(nodevices < 1) {
                cout << "No Shamrock detected...exiting" <<endl;
                ShamrockClose();
                ShutDown();
                return(1);
        }


Han anyone had similar issues?
