Working with Pentax Remote Assistant 3

I've had my K20D for a few years now and it works just fine for my needs. Recently though I got a laptop computer and I decided to try some tethered capture stuff, as I want to do some prime focus Astrophotography. Anyhow Pentax RA 3 doesn't want to recognise my camera. I even tried Lightroom tethered capture and I get a message that there is no camera connected. I'm using the same USB cable that I use to export my photos from the camera with, I have no issues when I export. Any ideas. Please help, thanks.

Which OS are you running?

Most likely you need to run it as administrator if you're using one of the new windows OS.

Have you tried PKTether? It's free and the developer is a member here.
