All alerts point to the correct location and sound files exist HOWEVER they do not play individually under Media Player so now suspect it maybe media player issue although having changed the default to VLC where audio works still no audio from JTAlert. Other .wav files will not play either…

On the assumption that JTAlert will ignore the default and always point to Media Player then this must be the issue. Will attempt to repair windows ‘bit by bit’.

Release Notes.

2.16.10 (28-Jul-2020)

  *** Includes Callsign database file version 2020-07-28 (2020-Jul-28)

  New Features:

    - Lotw adif files: The QSL_RCVD fields used by LoTW are now treated as
       LOTW_QSL_RCVD fields. If the Adif file header indicates the file was sourced
       from LoTW, the QSL_RCVD to LOTW_QSL_RCVD translation is automatic.

  Changes:

    - Band Activity Display: Has been renamed to Mode Activity Display.

    - Windows notification sounds: The single sound option (introduced with 2.16.9)
       has been extended to two independant sound/volume options. One sound for
       "Errors & Failure" and the other for "Success & Information" notifications.

  Fixes:

    - Windows user names with accented characters: Functions, like Band Activity,
       Text Messages, Sound play, not working when the %localappdata% path contained
       accented characters (Windows user name has these characters, eg. Jesús).
       Caused by a defect in a 3rd party code library that applied incorrect Json
       data encoding to accented characters sent to the JTAlertV2.Manager process.
       (2.15.1 defect).

I found the issue was with Windows media player itself as it just hung when trying to play any wave sound files from anywhere directly.

I went through SFC /scannow routine, DSIM analysis, and restore to 3 days previous to the error,  no change. Also tried SAFE mode.

This morning I did a repair / in place install of Windows 10, and again not resolved.

I found a workaround by setting the defaults to ‘Groove music’. VLC and others would not play JTAlerts but this one worked.

Hope this helps

locked Re: Wanted DXCCs V.2.16.10 Band 4 m

Jesus
 

Good afternoon Laurie, I will try to explain myself better and I trust the Google translation ...

Under normal conditions, when I am working in WSJT, in the band, example, 20 meters, when opening the searched DXCC, the data is represented in the 20 meter band; If you are in the 4 meter band, when performing the same operation, the data sheet with the 160 meter band title appears.
Well it is true, as you just indicated, that you can access by clicking on the corresponding band, and it is so, it works.

It is not a band that has activity and that is why I did not use it and did not know that it comes out like 160 meters, but with the solution provided, you change it that is important.

Cordially,
Jesús, EA1YR

I can't replicate this behavior. Clicking the appropriate Band button on the DXCC Alert settings will display the required Band.

What makes you think that 160m is being displayed rather than 4m?

If that folder/files deletion included the JTAlert installation directory, my only other suggestion is that you try installing to a different location out-side the "Program Files..." directories. I am thinking a possible security/permissions issue, perhaps something broken within the File System.

Its probably worth running an Disk Error check, you may have a bad sector.

Screen shot:
https://qsl.net/wc4r/jtalert2.png

Whatever the problem, given the consistency of the failure, my guess is that the cause is specific to your Windows environment.

Users who have experienced these AutoIT errors have reported that the frequency is inconsistent (random) and not on every execution. I don't recall other reports of the failure occurring when trying to open the Settings.

I am thinking a possible security/permissions issue with the JTAlert installation directory. Try installing JTAlert to a directory outside the Windows protected "Program Files ..." directory trees. While JTAlert has been coded correctly to work under those directories it wont hurt to install to a new location.

If after installing to a new location the problem persists, failure when trying to open the Settings, please zip up the JTAlertSettings.exe file and email it to me directly (use my QRZ listed email address)

Try real-time -- if that makes no difference than it would appear that it's not related to any processing delay.

This is a known, unfixable problem with JTAlert V2 that will go away with V3....yet to be predicted when it will be released.

Seems like that should be OK.  Just for experimentations sake try raising the priority of JTAlert and see if it makes any difference.
