when I unplug it from the computer

Unplug from camera instead.

It's working but I have some doubts

First of all I want to thank you for this great program

I have tested with my Canon Powershot A3200IS, and it is working

But I have some problems:

1. When I turn the AF lock ON, it focuses in two 'steps'. In the first step I can see briefly the rectangle turn green
But in the next small focus 'step' it takes, I can see the rectangle only in white.
I don't know if this is the normal behaviour (2 steps focusing). In the latter step I can't notice any difference in the image from the first 'step', or at least is difficult to tell looking at the small lcd of the camera.

2. When I have this AF lock on, if I press the icon with the camera, it focuses again (it doesn't maintain the AF lock)
Am I doing something wrong?
The AF lock on, only works for me if after locking it, I make the timelapse to start.
Then the camera starts taking all the photos without refocusing at the beginning or at any point of the timelapse. (maintaining the focus where it was locked all the time from beginning to end)
But I just want to take photos with AF lock ON, and take them at my own pace.

3. When the timelapse starts, if I want to stop it, I can't.
I press Stop but nothing happens.
Can I send some kind of command over the console to make it stop?

4. If I download a recent photo, and come back to take more, I loose the focus where it was.
It refocuses again (with AF lock on)
Any way I can view the photo I have just taken in my pc, and if I like it, keep doing more photos with the same focus (and keep the rest of values too)?

Thanks in advance.

But I have some problems:

1. & 2.
The program sends only the script command for AF lock. Wether this works for the A3200 I can't say. It's more a porting problem or how the AF lock works for the A3200.

3.
I'll check this issue. Probably it's a Windows/Autoit thing.

4.
For the download of pictures the GUI goes into the playback mode and reset the AF lock.

OK, forget 3
Now it works.
I think the problem was the value in seconds, I think it was very low (3 seconds maybe)
With 10 sec it works

Thanks for your answers!

When I try to download files I get a popup with the heading Download of DCIM Files:  It is an error encountered.  It looks like it's returning a not enough memory error.  Any ideas?

Ok, ptpCamGui runs fine. It's more a problem with Lua and your camera.

ptpCamGui starts a script that gathers informations about the pictures and sends this informations back to the GUI as a text file. How many pictures you try to download? 700 pictures and more are usually not a problem.

Have you already tested other lua scripts (e.g. edi.lua from the CHDK package)?

I'm pretty new to the whole CHDK package.  I haven't tried any scripts that I know of.  Is there a way to troubleshoot and figure out the issue?  Maybe delete some photos and try again?
