Re: STARTUP OF VER 2.15.10

I believe the the first screen image (JATLERT_STARTUP) has the answer to your issue.  The other three images are as a result of the issue in that first image.
When you installed the JTALERT software, you had to select the program or programs that that you want to control via JTALSET.   A separate ICON was placed on your Windows desktop for each specified program.
From your description in this message, you should have a startup ICON to start WSJT-X and TJALERT.  You need to use that shortcut ICON to start the two programs.  Each startup icon has the proper command line to start the program for a specified program.

Hi Jeff,
 
I had to change the default sound card in my Laptop (Win7) to allow JTAlert to find a sound card to make it play.

No.  I hear all other programs via the speakers just fine.  Only issue is with JT Alerts.  Looking to see if others are having issues with the SW now that a sound feature was added and then removed in the past 2 versions.

Yes V2
Are you saying that the Log4OM Callsign is switching between the DXCall set in each WSJT-X instance?
Yes, while LOG4om and 2x wsjtx and 2x jtalert running the log4om screen keeps flipping between the calls...  the one each DX call wsjtx has on the screen.
Is the switching happening repeatedly without any changes to the WSJT-X DXCall entries? That shouldn't happen, it should only happen once for each instance of JTAlert as it sends the instruction to Log4OM to change callsign.
Yes, repeatedly with now interaction from me at the end of each decode period it flips back and forth
Have you setup Log4OM per the JTAlert help file and are not also trying to setup duplicate instructions per the Log4OM help as it uses a different methods (the last time I checked). My guess is that you have Log4OM setup to interact with WSJT-X directly.
I setup via the log40m v2 instructions.. and appears to jive with the jtalert instructions.
When 2 of the wsjtx's are running its fine... when I start 1 jtalert its fine... its when I start the second JTalert instance when things go crazy...   
It was working find with log4om v1... this all started after I moved to v2 and redid the log4om and jtalert configs for v2.

I suggest you setup JTAlert -> Log4OM per the JTAlert instructions (under the "Settings -> Logging ->Log4OM V2" help topic).

Yes I'm using Win 10 64 bit.
I'm still waiting for a word from Bitdefender so far nothing.
I was on 40m this and had no problem but no doubt it will happen again...

Not sure how many of you guys have ever had a virus or malware.
I have and it's not easy to get rid of.
This was a long time ago not even sure which version of Windows...back then PC's were not the center of the world like today.

One time I couldn't even reformatt the drive.
So I'm a little gun shy

I have a hard time believing it as easy as save my money and use MS Defender... It's tempting though.

Guess l just ride this crazy train just a little while longer.

Matt,

The JTAlert Scan reporting all alert entities as need for Log4OM2 MySQL logs defect has finally been identified and corrected. I have sent a direct email with a link to the fixed build.

FYI, I finally got access to a MySQL dump yesterday, from another affected user, and that provided me with the data needed to identify the cause and code a fix. I wasted a lot of time trying to reproduce the defect (with zero success) using adif exports and importing into the Log4OM2 MySQL log. They never failed. It was only after I got the actual data and not data that had been through a MySQL export -> ADIF -> MySQL import process that I could reproduce the reported defective scan.

Thx,

JTAlert will continue to report previously worked prefixes until the prefix is added to the "No Longer Needed" list and that only occurs by running the Scan Log.

If a station has been previously worked (is a B4) they will not generate the prefix alert but other un-worked stations with the same prefix will generate the alert.

If a previously worked station (is a B4) is still generating the prefix alert than the likely cause is that you have the "Play alert if B4" option set for the Prefix alert or the B4 alert is set with a Date threshold and the station was worked prior to that Date an is no longer considered a B4 and will generate the prefix alert.

I confirmed that it is not an issue with the version of JTAlert.  I reinstalled 2.15.8 and it does the same thing.  

How do I get it to scan the HRD logbook and find the prefixes?  Every QSO in the database has a value for prefix.

You don't have to tell JTAlert which HRD logbook to use for the Scan, it will always use whatever logbook you have enabled under the "Logging -> HRD V5/V6" section of the Settings.

If the number of prefixes not needed found during the Scan has significantly changed from a previous scan then the likely cause is that JTAlert it is not scanning the same logbook as previous or you have altered the QSL requirements for the Prefix scan such that fewer qualify QSOs are found in the logbook.

Is the Scan during its initial import of your HRD log reporting the number of QSOs in the log as HRDLogbook is reporting or is it significantly different? If different that indicates that the Scan is not using the same logbook as your using in HRD and you will need to adjust JTAlert to use the correct logbook (under the "Logging -> HRD V5/V6 section).

What bat file might you suggest (I haven't constructed a bat file in a long time..ha) that would also not start the sound option as this bombs out the program as well
tnx, Jim

There is no need for bat files or starting JTAlert.exe directly. Use one of the Shortcuts created by the JTAlert installer. Either the desktop shortcut, if you enabled that option during install, or the shortcuts that are always created in the "HamApps JTAlert" Windows Startmenu group.

I'll assume (dangerous I know) that all the chit-chat is based on Win 10, I was
a loyal AVAST user for over ten years, eventually I got I tired of the
relatively recent constant up-selling their marketing department was (is?)
doing. It was around this time that I realized that Win 10/MS had their own very
effective anti virus software, free I will add. So, I gave it a try, it worked,
yes it would bring my attention to the fact that there was some unknown software
it wasn't familiar with, I would just say run it anyway. Now there have been
several improved versions of JTAlert since telling MS Defender the software was
safe yet I have not been notified about subsequent versions of JTAlert.

I theorize that as Win 10 has a different model to traditional software in that
it is updated semi-automatically, that there must be a two way communication
between each user and MS HQ, ergo any new software that MS Defender encounters
and is OK'd by a user gets trickled down through the update networking, clever,
convenient and scary all at the same time.

The above is my take on the situation, I have been wrong in the past though...

I have been using BitDefender for a number of years and the probelm with false
positive detections in each update of JTAlert seems to have got worse of the
last few months.

The 2.15.10 update that I just installed has cause reports of different
'Trojan.GenericKD.xxxxxxx' in JTAlert.exe and JTAlert_AL.exe as well as a
'Potentially malicious application' report for JTAlertSettings.exe (with no
indication of what that means).

I have submitted all 3 for checking, and submitted an update for my on-going
ticket with them regarding this everytime JTAlert is updated with a note about
how annoying this is and that I hope a permanent solution can be found (I
doubt that will happen but we can only hope).

To allow the latest version to run I had to allow BitDefender to do it's
'disinfection' and then go to the 'Notifications' and select each of the
reported problems (capture the information for submitting the False Positive
reports) and click the options to Restore the file (it even removes the
Desktop Shortcuts so have to restore those too). The action of Restoring the
files automatically creates a scanning exception and allows the programs to
run. (I remove the exceptions in a few days after they have fixed the
database).

I use https://www.bitdefender.com/submit/ (
https://www.bitdefender.com/submit/ ) for the submissions.
