Good to hear. I suspect however, that eventually, the .NET 5 runtime will have issues with Win7 SP1 per the Microsoft announcement. Likely the intention is that Win7 will not be supported without the ESU, but the underlying code has not reached that point or they simply forgot to enable a switch. Only time will tell.

Are you talking about the tx/rx counts or the Band number? let me know.

These sort of changes are NOW very trivial to implement and the changes can be seen in real-time. I'll add the request to the todo/wish list.

FWIW, there are further changes in progress for that window and the Band Heat window.

locked Gear ICON on callsigns display

Laurie,

Thank you for a wonderful upgrade.  I love it!

I have one issue which I have not been able to resolve, and that is the "Gear" (settings) ICON on the callsigns display has disappeared on me, so I can't get into the setting for that window.  I think it disappeared at the same time that I was fiddling with the settings, and disabled the stats display at the bottom of the window.  But since I can no longer get into settings, I can't change it back.

Thanks for your help and for a fantastic upgrade!

Activate the window and press F2.

F2 is the standard across all the windows for opening the Options/Settings windows.

Thanks Laurie,

 

My last computer on Windows 7 is my FT8 computer.  Fortunately, the 64-bit 5.0.5 framework loaded without a hitch.  I do not have the paid updates (I didn’t know they existed).  My Windows version is 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1.

 

I do like the new format of JT Alert 2.50, but I will need time to check out all its new capabilities.  I definitely like the “Last upload to LOTW” when I hover over the received callsign!

Hi Laurie - 

Fantastic upgrade! No issues with the install. Took a while to see where all the items to adjust were, and now my Alert is all customized. 

The only minor request/suggestion I have is to center the numbers in the Activity Window, or make it a choice. Certainly not a big deal to leave it as it is.

Thanks so much for this program, Laurie. FTx wouldn't be as much fun without your essential add-on.

Yes, but it still shows the virus in the installer in the Download folder.  There are no JTA files there.

BTW, it's running just fine.  Got everything configured as I think I like.

More information...
* I relaunched JTAlert and immediately went to the log settings and
* unchecked "Enable HRD V5/V6 Logging"
* JTAlert is still running several minutes later.

Perhaps HRD is sending something that JTAlert doesn't like?

I am trying to narrow this down and have some new information...
* deleted the configuration file again.
* Launched JTAlert and let it run for several minutes to confirm it wasn't going to crash
* Went in to JTAlert settings and changed ONLY what is circled below:



* I did not rebuild the database.
* In less than a minute, JTAlert silently disappeared.

I have HRD v6.7.0.323.  This particular logbook has 8,668 QSOs in it.

Hello Laurie-

See attached screenshots.

1.) Running 8 instances of WSJT-X and JTAlert. Receiving UDP Comm Failure on instance 8.
Each instance of WSJT-X has a unique UDP Port number.

2.) Instance #1 does not always display the Band and Mode.

3.) If all 8 instances of WSJT-X are up and starting JTAlert instances, JTAlert sometimes misses an instance of WSJT-X. Best to start one instance of WSJT-X along with JTAlert and go on until all 8 instances are up.

The new call window is very flexible.

Thanks;
Bill W2PKY

 The only surprise was selecting the call sign to send to WSIT required a double click.
Perusing the settings I found the switch to set it back to single click.
That was one of the changed settings that didn't get documented.
I changed the default from single-click to double-click during development to avoid the numerous inadvertent initiating of QSOs while I was testing the windows.

The new windows, each have their own dedicated config file. I am moving away from the single-monolithic config file of the old JTAlert, which if there is a problem due to corruption losses all settings. Now with individual window-specific configs, at most the settings of one window will be lost if there is a file corruption event.

All Alert colors and that includes the Callsigns that don't generate Alerts are defined in the Settings window of the main JTAlert window. The old Settings window for want of a better description. Visit the "Alerts -> Miscellaneous Alerts -> No Alert" section and change there. The color change will be seen on the next decode period.



FYI eventually Alert colors will be moved over to the new .NET 5 code base. When that happens, color changes will be observed in real-time. That will happen when the Alerting logic code is moved into the new code. Sorry, there is no time-line for that change.

The problem has resurfaced.  Here are the steps that brought it back...
  1. After deleting the preferences database, JTAlert ran fine for at least 1/2 hour.
  2. I went into the settings and setup HRD Logbook.  (I have the latest HRD versions and patches.)
  3. I then tweaked some of the alerts to my liking -- enabled some, disabled some
  4. Next I shutdown JTAlert.  (This is how I used to do it with 2.16 as it would often crash after changing settings.)
  5. I restarted JTAlert and told it to rebuild the QSO database.  I processed ~8,000 QSOs from HRD and I saved the results.
  6. I shut it down again as in #4.
  7. I restarted it and within 30 seconds, I got the AutoIt error again.  (Same line #.)
Is there any kind of log or debugging information that I can capture for you?
