Adding ThorlabsAPTStage crashes micro-manager

Ben Isaacoff-2

I'm trying to use my Thorlabs APT stage (TDC001) in micro-manager. I followed the direction for compiling and adding the APT drivers for 64 bit windows (at and I thought I was successful when ThorlabsAPTStage was no longer grayed out in the Hardware Configuration Wizard, and I was able to open the folder and highlight the stage and click add. 

However, doing this consistently (I've tried restarting everything a few times) causes micro-manager to immediately crash. The window that pops up says "Java(TM) Platform SE binary has stopped working". You can find the CoreLog at

Does anybody have any idea what is going on here and more importantly what I can do to fix this? I'm happy to provide more information if that'd be helpful.

Thank you,
