Hi Mark,

It is on Linux. ADAndor is master branch from github. It worked before, with another ADAndor version, and AD 2-6.

Come to think of it, I might not be using the same compile vs. Runtime Andor support libs.. Need to double check that one.

Thanks,
Hinko

Also, how is your spectrograph connected to the computer?  Is it directly connected via USB or indirectly via the connector labeled "Camera".  The latter is how mine is connected.
