SOLVED: ThorlabsAPTStage 64bit issues

ben.sutcliffe
Hi,

I was having issues with running a Thorlabs DRV001 connected via a Thorlabs BSC201 controller on a 64bit OpenSPIM setup. 

These issues have now been resolved by doing the following with great help from Jerome Boulanger, MRC LMB, Cambridge, UK:

1. Downloading the micro-manager source code as instructed here (https://micro-manager.org/wiki/Micro-Manager_Source_Code).
2. Installing all the relevant programs for building micro-manager as instructed here (https://micro-manager.org/wiki/Building_MM_on_Windows).
5. Downloading and unzipping the APTx64 form here (https://micro-manager.org/wiki/File:APT_x64.zip).
6. Then building the ThorlabsAPTStage Device Adapter in 64bit on a 64bit Windows 7 machine, using the 'APT.lib' downloaded in point 5.
7. The resulting .dll file was renamed to 'mmgr_dal_ThorlabAPTStage.dll' then placed into the OpenSPIM.app folder along with the 'APT.dll' downloaded in point 5.
8. The OpenSPIM Fiji/MM bundle was then restarted and a ThorlabAPTStage could be configured as described for a 32bit system here (https://micro-manager.org/wiki/ThorlabsAPTStage).

If you want to try this 64bit ThorlabsAPTStage Device Adapter then download the .zip file here (https://www.dropbox.com/s/9ewwtxe1k2elmft/ThorlabsAPTStage_64bit.zip) and unzip into the OpenSPIM or Micro-Manager main folder.

Best,
Ben
