    Although not a CHDK question this is related to my ongoing multicam project.
     
     Using AutoIt I need to briefly disconnect all usb devices. The last item on this link suggests a way of doing it :-
     
     http://stackoverflow.com/questions/404097/power-off-an-usb-device-in-software-on-windows
     
     There is an associated C# programme :-
     
     https://github.com/idmadj/handsoff/blob/master/DisableHardware.cs
     
     I don't know anything about C# so on Windows 7 tried this :-
     
     csc /out:disable_hub.exe  Disablehardware.cs
     
     It fails because there is no static Main().
     
     How do I compile this and is any other code required ?
     
     Thanks.

    Appreciate that H-H.

    Good grief, after having recently written this:

    I just read that USBDeview has "all kinds of snazzy, user-callable command line capabilities as well as the basic GUI"  - hadn't realised that...potentially useful for further (e.g. AutoIt) automatic analysis.
    I can't now imagine why I didn't pick up on that  :-[
