Bill.....
      As I did, you may have installed the wrong version of .Net. The problems you described are exactly what I experienced. I had to go to remove programs, search by date, and remove .Net, then go back to the JTalert installation website, click the link provided, and then install the correct version of .Net. The x86 version is for 32 bit versions of Windows, the x64 is for 64 bit versions of Windows.
Hope this helps.

I did not modify my setup after the installation and it appears WSJT-X is still set up to use port 2237.

Is there a remedy or something to try?

Is there a way to go back to the older version safely?

WSJT-X decode is fine, but nothing showing on JTAlert Callsign window and after a QSO, it's logged the WSJT-X adif, but QSO does not move into the Log4OM Log.

After a restart of JTAlert it works for some time until it crashed agn.

locked Callsign window in V2.50 opens independently from applications scheduled to open when starting

WU9D <mike@...>
 

To start with I am not pleased at all with the callsign window. I use a laptop for mobile operations and desktop space is at a premium. So I liked it better the way it was before.

That being said, the callsign window opens BEFORE any applications I have specified to open FIRST. The callsign window needs to open AFTER any applications specified, just like the JT Alert main window.

Laurie,

 

Just installed v2.50 on my Win10 PC and am amazed at the improvements!  I’ve been using the various versions of JTAlert for 8 years and have loved your app.  This is the very best version yet!

 

Thank you for a wonderful app!!!

 

Blessings,

Bill,

That function/feature already exists in WSJT-X.
Double right click on the Tx1 button. The Tx1 message box will grey out and all QSO will start with the  Tx2 message.

locked km vs miles

Fred Roberts
 

Hey all....just downloaded 2.50.0...it's incredible. I've spent the last 30 minutes trying to find the setting to change km to miles when I hover over a station in the decodes window. 
I have 'display distance in miles' checked in WSJT-x 2.2.2.
I must be blind because I can't find the option in JTalert.
Thanks,

John,

It is possible that the Callsigns window is on top of the main JTAlert
window. Try moving the Callsigns window. If the window won't move, click
on the cog to open the settings. Go to "Window", and make sure "Position
locked" is not checked.

locked icon messaging #FT8

Hello

the new version is great I had no problem. Great work thank you Laurie and your team of testers
question anyway hi hi hi

in the old version we could see which station had activated the messaging, the callsign was underlined. with version 2.50.0 apparently  
would it be possible to enlarge the star or put another icon more visible (like CQ, DX, 73 alerts)

locked Re: 2.5.0 -- AutoIt Error

David - AK2L
 

You don't turn off virtual screens -- they are a part of Windows 10.  But I did as you asked anyway and moved everything to what I will call "desktop 0".  I then re-enabled HRD6 logging.  JTAlert silently quit within 60 seconds.

Clearly, JTAlert doesn't like being connected to my HRD installation.  This is not a new problem; it existing in earlier versions of JTAlert as well.  But with the earlier versions, it would usually happen only once when I changed a setting.  I would then restart JTAlert and all would be well until I changed another setting.  With v2.50, it happens every time.

I would be interested to hear from other HRD6 users to see if they have seen any problems.

For now, I will look at logging directly from WSJT-X or perhaps changing my logging program altogether.

For Laurie....

Sometimes this can be sped up dramatically by wrapping the entire import in a transaction.  Are you already doing that?
And it appears you do postpone the index creation until it's done which is good too.
