Tried to install the latest version of JT-Alert and couldn't get it to recognize my fresh installation of .NET After circling the drain for several hours I came to the conclusion that the problem is that if one goes to Microsoft to install it you get the newest version 5.0.11 not 5.0.0. The 5.0.11 is not recognized by JT-Alert. Solved the problem by going deeper on the Microsoft download site to old versions and got .NET 5.0.0 and all is now working. Not sure how difficult it would be to fix this on JT-Alert, but in the meantime, perhaps a warning or tip on the JT-Alert might be in order. Love the new version, great job
Sorry Bill, you're incorrect. JTAlert works fine with the .NET 5.0.11 Desktop Runtime. There is no specific version required by JTAlert except that is 5.0.0 or later.
I have the 5.0.11 Desktop Runtime on all my PCs, JTAlert installed on the Ham dedicated PC and the JTAlert development PC both behave correctly with the latest .NET 5.0.11 Desktop Runtime.
Your issue with the new install of JTAlert not recognizing your .NET install would be due to installing the non-desktop version (the console version). You have to install the Desktop Runtime. JTAlert is a Desktop app, not a Console app, it requires the Desktop Runtime
5.0.11 is a security update so Windows will be automatically installing it for as part of its automated updates process.
