Re: jtalert not recognizing .net 5.017

Joe Subich, W4TV

Are you *SURE* you are using the *DESKTOP* version of dotNET 5.017
and not the console version?

in PC Settings -> APPS, scroll down to "Microsoft" and confirm you
see "Microsoft Windows Desktop Runtime - 5.017 (x64)" and not
"Microsoft Windows Runtime - 5.017" or something similar.

You must have bot the DESKTOP runtime and the proper 64 or 32 bit
version for your JT Alert installation.

I've been using JTALERT with WSJT-X for years without any problems. With the recent changes in JTALERT requiring .net 5.017, I can't get JTALERT to see .net 5.017.
JTALERT and .net both installed without any problems but when I start WSJT-X and JTALERT, JTALERT tells me I need .net 5.017 !!!!
I tried deleting and reinstalling both and re-booting several times. JTALERT still didn't work.
I ran Windows repair. JTALERT didn't work.
I turned off my firewall and virus program. Reinstalled both. JTALERT still doesn't work.
As a matter of fact, I can't even get a sound check out of it !!!
I'm running a fully updated Windows 10 64-bit system.  I did look at the Windows Features and can see earlier version  of .net (4.0??) but not .net 5.017 there.
