Good to hear. I suspect however, that eventually, the .NET 5 runtime will have issues with Win7 SP1 per the Microsoft announcement. Likely the intention is that Win7 will not be supported without the ESU, but the underlying code has not reached that point or they simply forgot to enable a switch. Only time will tell.

I can also confirm that the .NET 5 runtime and JTAlert 2.50 are running fine with my Win7 Prof. SP1, without paid updates.

I like the new version, for example the indication of the desired continent for directed calls is very informative, much better than the solution used in 2.16.
I wonder if the triangles for EQSL and LotW could also replaced by one letter (E / L) in the according corners in the entries of the callsign window? Then one would not have to remember which corner stands for which QSL route.
