Good morning Laurie.....
      A bit of help needed. Installed 2.50.0 and after a minute or two wait I get the following pop up window:
     I am running Windows 10 Home. I did get the warning that . Net 5 wasn't installed, and I installed it (I choose the x86 version - should I have used x64?)  
I've also included a shot of the WSJT-x settings.
     Thanks for your help, and a great program!

Hello Laurie-

Switched over to Multicast but no help. Notice the band and mode are still not found.
Any other suggestions?

1.) Running 8 instances of WSJT-X and JTAlert. Receiving UDP Comm Failure on instance 8.
Each instance of WSJT-X has a unique UDP Port number.

2.) Instance #1 does not always display the Band and Mode.

3.) If all 8 instances of WSJT-X are up and starting JTAlert instances, JTAlert sometimes misses an instance of WSJT-X. Best to start one instance of WSJT-X along with JTAlert and go on until all 8 instances are up.

The new call window is very flexible.

I suggest you move over to using UDP multicast for the WSJT-X UDP Server settings. With multicast there is no need for unique ports, all instances can use the same port.

As for auto-starting WSJT-X, you could try adding in an additional delay for each startup entry. Alternatively, setup a batch file to start WSJT-X then JTAlert followed by a pause and repeat that for the additional instance pairs.
