I deleted everything in that folder and re-launched JTAlert.
So far, so good.  Running for 5 minutes as I write this.
(Tip: You might want to move some of the help files to a web site.  It's heard to read a help file that depends upon JTAlert when the program keeps crashing.)


locked Windows Defender false positive : Release 2.50.0

Ron / W4MMP
 

Hi Laurie,

The download is failing a Window Defender scan.   This is on a Win10 Home, with all current updates including the latest Defender definition update.   Most likely the old AutoIt security issue (?).  I have submitted a false positive report to Micro Soft.

I have switched back to 2.16.17 & all is running normal now.  

Please advise if there is other info I can send or if I have overlooked something.

You can ignore the second error (AutoIT error) that is being thrown due to the critical JTAlertV2.Manager.exe process not running. That process is automatically started by main JTAlert window, it is a background process without a window.
If JTAlert is reporting it was unable to start the Manager that indicates that it issued the startup command but the process was not found when trying to confirm correct startup.

Likely your PC protection software is interfering in the startup of JTAlertV2.Manager.exe, you may have to flag the file as safe. Note: the same named file exists with JTAlert 2.16.17, but it is in a different location and uses the older .NET Framework technology compared to the new .NET 5 runtime. The new file is located in the "PluginsX" directory which is new with 2.50.0, while the old file is in the "Plugins" (no "X") directory. I suggest flagging the directory as safe.

No you can't turn it off. Major components of JTAlert, in particular the Alerting logic and Log reads & uploads are still written in AutoIT code.

Since you're the only one reporting this with the new build out of the 750 downloads that have occurred since announcement, plus the 4+ months the Test Team has had the new code, I am left thinking that the problem is specific to your PC.

Try deleting the JTAlert config.sqlite file and starting JTAlert without one.

The JTAlert help file,  "Troubleshooting -> Setting Changes Not Remembered" discusses when the config file is located and also how to roll-back to an earlier version if needed.

If JTAlert still throws the error despite being started without a config file, my suggestion at this time is to rollback to JTAlert 2.16.17

That's the system JTAlert is currently built with -- you don't control that.

Can you describe your computer system?  CPU?  Graphics card?

Seems to happen to older/slower computers more so than newer ones.

Rebooted computer.
Launched HRD
Launched WSJT-X
Launched JTAlert
15 - 20 seconds after launching JTAlert, I go the AutoIt error.  (Same line number.)

No.  But so far it happens within 30 seconds of starting.  Note that WSJT-X is happily decoding during this time.

Try a PC restart.

Activate the window and hit F2 (the standard for all the new windows) to bring up the options popup.

With the new windows the "Gear icon" in the status bar is your friend.
It is your access into the Options popup for changing the settings of the associated window (in real-time in most cases).
See the "JTAlert 2.50.0 features" help file, "Standard Window Functionality" topic.
The status bar is set to Hidden. There is no gear icon anymore.

That turns off ALL the colors. I only want the GRAY turned off.  See Laurie's earlier response.
