Good day-

My installation of WSJT-X appears to work flawlessly, but I noticed that it appears to save a new config file every session!
here is a partial screen shot- There appears to be one file for each session since WSJT-X was installed on this new computer. Win 10 Pro.

Is this a setup error on my part, or a boo-boo, or "just the way it is?"

Thank you for your support of this terrific product!

OM,

These files belong to JTAlert not WSJT-X.

At most you should only see 7 days worth of these config backup files. JTAlert automatically removes older files.

The date & time in the file name is the UTC date & time when the file was created.

Something is not working correctly if your seeing files older than 7 days. Perhaps your Protection software is interfering and not allowing JTAlert to delete its files.

You can safely delete these backup files, those with a date in the filename. DO NOT delete config.sqlite, that is your current configuration file and all your settings will be lost if it is removed.

That's not WSJTX but JTAlert config files you are seeing. Check the
directory tree again ...\HamApps\...\JTAlertX

It is actually JTAlert saving its Config settings when it closes.

In the FT4 contest, ongoing, I have set my "Ignore Before " date and checked the box, but JTAlert is still marking calls worked before today as worked.  No dupe checking for the contest!

Is anyone else having this issue??

Where is/are the files in Win 10?

Win10 file paths are exactly the same as Win7/8, there is no difference.
Use the path shown in the help file or alternatively, %localappdata%\HamApps\ which is translated by Windows to the true filesystem path.

Normally the calling station Callsign is displayed, BUT, in your case that did not happen because your using the Q65 mode which the current public release of JTAlert, 2.16.17, does not recognize.

2.16.17 was released before Q65 was released so has no understanding of Q65 decodes. When a decode is received for an unrecognized mode, JTAlert will not display the decode Callsign, except if your Callsign is detected in the decode. You will observe if your receiving Q65 decodes not directed to you, that none are displayed in JTAlert. This is not ideal, but happens when a new mode is released and I don't get an early "heads up" that it is happening and what the new mode identification character used will be. Each mode uses a unique mode identification character which JTAlert has to be coded to look for. The same happened when FST4 was released.

The next release of JTAlert will recognize Q65 decodes.

Laurie,
I fully understand your frustration. I feel the same way, at least until Mike called me. I should not have vented in public, it was inexcusable.
What tipped me over was when I entered the 239.255.0.1 address, I did not get a dropdown box asking for the Outgoing Interface or the Multicast TIL lines.
At that point frustration took over...
JTAlert is a very useful addition that makes working FT8 so much better.
We users don't understand the huge amount of effort developing software takes. And to freely contribute your work to others is above and beyond selfless. 
My apologies and please accept my thanks for your time in developing the software and being willing to help troubleshoot problems.

due to recent changes in WSJT-X 2.3.0 is the need to ensure a loopback outgoing interface is selected in the UDP Server settings.

eg  my WSJT-X setup.
