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

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.
