locked Re: Do you run JTAlert against multiple copies of WSJT-X and JTDX concurrently on the same PC? - POLL Closed

JTAlert Support (VK3AMA)
 

Poll is now closed.

The multi-instance support within JTAlert will be changing. It will no longer be possible to run multiple copies of JTAlert against both WSJT-X and JTDX simultaneously. You will be able to run multiple instances of JTAlert against either WSJT-X OR JTDX only. Both types of applications can be running simultaneously on the PC (JTAlert wont care), but only one of JTAlert operating modes (against WSJT-X or JTDX) will be supported.

This change may be reversed in the future, but unlikely in the short term.

I edited the mode.csv file and added "FT8;FT8;DATA;FT8" & restarted Log4OM. Now if I go to "edit" one of my prior QSO's - FT8 shows up in the mode box. I then tried to "update" the QSO which in the past resent it to all of the online weblogs including eQSL however it is still not showing up in my outbox. How are you getting it to upload to eQSL and do you have to do this one at a time or is there a way to update and upload a date range.

As usual, I found the answer right after I posted my last reply.   It is done not in the logging program but rather by mapping FT8 to Data in TQSL.   It is a little hard to find.

Paul,

Uploading to LoTW should be the responsibility of your logger. You should look there on how to upload an unsupported mode and what to do once the mode becomes available.

If you not using a logger and relying on a raw ADIF file, the recommended method of uploading Digital mode (not recognised by LoTW) is to map the mode to "DATA" within the TQSL app. If you do that, once the mode is recognised by LoTW, you will need to remove that mapping and re-upload the QSOs to LoTW.

My suggestion, if you don't want instant LoTW QSL confirmation, is to hold off uploading to LoTW until the mode is recognised.

Chuck,

If the reboot didn't correct the problem, that indicates a file lock due to an existing running process is not the cause. The likely culprit will be your virus/malware protection software preventing the OS file write and the installer is then reporting the move error.

The .plugin files are typically involved in JTAlert functionality that runs in the background and their failure may not be immediately apparent. Depending on which plugin files are not updated you may not notice any problems. Eventually you will want to ensure that all files are updated. The next release of JTAlert has 4 plugin files that have internal changes and a failure to update them will be problematic.

Uninstalled previous versions of JtAlert-X but no joy. Ignoring the error moves in install on but stalls on another 183 error of JTTxtmsg.Plugin. Ignoring that also  and the program installs and looks like it working ok, with possible exception of Worked B4.
Error screen attached.
Assistance appreciated,

Chuck,

Very likely there are old JTAlert plugin processes still running which are preventing the setup from installing the updated files.

The easiest fix is to perform a PC reboot and run the setup again.
