Point Grey SCOR-14SOM camera won't configure in Micro-manager

histolab
I have a Point Grey Scorpion monochrome camera and I would like to use it under micro-manager.  I have installed the Point Grey Research FlyCapture 2 software (version 2.10.3.169 as directed in http://micro-manager.3463995.n2.nabble.com/manager-with-point-grey-camera-td7587924.html) and the camera works fine with FlyCap.  I have copied libiomp5md.dll and FlyCapture2_v100.dll to the µmanager directory as instructed.
 
When I enter the hardward configuration wizard for micro-manager, the camera is available and I can walk through the basic configuration screens.  However, when finishing the configuration, the program freezes with the message "Loading System Configuration, please wait ..." Upon restart, there is a configuration file, but selecting it causes it to again freeze at the loading configuration stage.  Attempting to add the camera with the "Use Advanced Mode?" property to "No" doesn't fix the problem.
 
I am running Micro-manager version 1.4.23 downloaded as the nightly build 20170101 which is compatible with the 2.10.3.169 version of FlyCapture.
 
Thank you,
 
--Chad

Try the latest nightly build of Micro-Manager with FlyCap 2.10.3.266 as directed on the devices page for Point Grey cameras: https://micro-manager.org/wiki/Point_Grey_Research. If it still does not work, generate a problem report (Help > Report a Problem).

Best,

Nico

Thanks Nico.  Point Grey was gracious enough to send v. 2.10.3.266 and those files with the new Micro-manager build (20170618) solved the problem pefectly.
 
You can add to the supported devices, the Point Grey Scorpion CCD cameras (SCOR-14SO).
 
Thanks again,
