Laurie, This occurs both using the shortcut created by the setup, or by executing the  still present JTAlert.exe file.(1,748 KB)
I do use Spy Hunter and it will prevent setup from working but I have it locked out and rebooted, as I always do when doing an upgrade.
The first time I setup the new version it asked about paths. It does not do that now even though I removed all traces of JTAlert and
rebooted before trying to install again using the same setup app and a newly downloaded one.

Thanks for the added info.  Yes, I can save the information in the ACLog, but I must add the call.  It doesn't "come over" from the JTAlert.  I'll check the things you recommend.  Thank you.

Jon,

That message indicates that JTAlert was unable to confirm that the QSO got logged (by JTAlert) successfully to ACLog. JTAlert confirms the QSO was logged by directly querying the ACLog log database. A couple of possibilities...
  1. The QSO didn't get logged because ACLog is not running or the TCP API is not enabled in ACLog (both conditions need to be satisfied).
  2. The log file JTAlert tried to read was not found.
In a default installation, JTAlert automatically determines the correct log file by reading the ACLog settings file, so number 1. is the most likely problem.

Let us know how you get on with this.

If you still can't get this to work, use the "? -> Contact Support" menu, on the JTAlert title-bar, to send me your JTAlert files for analysis.


I neglected in the above response to ask the question "Does the QSO get logged to ACLog despite the error message?"

If the answer is yes, than look under the "Miscellaneous -> Performance" section of the JTAlert Settings window and increase the "Check QSO Log Record" time.

Dave,

Sounds like the shortcut your using to start JTAlert is referencing an incorrect path or file. Is this a user-created shortcut or one automatically created during the JTAlert install? If the later, than very likely you virus protection may have removed the JTAlert.exe file.

Please post an image of the offending error window (pse don't post your entire desktop, just the error window is needed).

Tony, don't worry. I endeavour to have all colors in JTAlert user-settable.

In this case, coloring the updates indicator, it is very unlikely to be implemented. But if it is, the color will be user-settable.

A little know fact, I am personally color challenged in one eye only.

I don't know what your achieving by altering the column widths. The overall window size doesn't change so you end up with a lot of empty  window space without any net gain in available screen space, plus the widths are not remembered so you have to do that every time you start JTAlert.

Hiding user-selectable bands is already on the todo list.

Dennis,

It is on the todo list, added by myself when I first coded the F4 support as I knew the user request would be coming ;-)

Until it is implemented, I suggest you don't have the Band Activity window open and rely on a periodic mouse-hover over the Band Activity status to temporarily show the popup window.

Very likely that for the scans affected your adif log file doesn't contain the required information. Does it contain the <CONT> and <PFX> fields?

Please send me direct (not via this group) a copy of your adif file.

While possible, coloring is unlikely to be implemented. An alternative is to use the Alternate Build of JTAlert which does away with this abbreviation,  instead using plain text, "(Updates)".

As I type this message 19:30 utc, the daily peak in PSKReporter activity, the top 3 reported modes (last 2 hours) on PSKReporter are FT8, FT4, JT9.
