ASICAP Auto Exposure Issue

Re: Image Capture Failed with code 11

Hi, ASICAP same problem, also the link for the FWTool to flash the camera from the other thread gives a 404 Error, page not found, if you think flashing the firmware will fix the issue would you provide a working link to the FWTool?
