locked Colors not working after reinstall.

wa6hoo@...
 

After having many Windows 10 problems, I decided to reinstall the OS or "Reset the PC" as Windows now describes it.  I have most of my software reinstalled (N3FJP's Amateur Contact Log V6.7, JTAlert V 2.16.16 and WSJT-X V2.2.2) and working but I can't get JTAlert to function as before the Windows reinstallation.  The colors remain just the same WSJT-X stock colors of Yellow for TX, Green for CQ and Red for MyCall.  The only one that I remember working previously was the B4 color of gray.  I don't recall making too many changes to the JTAlert software on the first install, so I was surprised that it just didn't work as before when I reinstalled it.

Any specific ideas or links to written instructions, outside of the ones that part of Amateur Contact Log, JTAlert and WSJT-X, which I've already tried.

Thanks much,

phil

You didn't answer my questions. The answers to which would provide me with some insight into what may be happening. I still don't know what you mean by "Crash". Is there an error popup? Is JTAlert becoming non-repressive or simply closing without warning?

My best guess is that your Protection software is interfering and deliberately killing JTAlert as soon as it sees some network traffic.

The JTAlert.exe executable (the main window and process) itself does not play any audio, instead it offloads that task to a background process, the JTAlertV2.Manager.exe. That operation involves sending a UDP message to the Manager. My guess is that your PC protection software is directly interfering with JTAlert.exe as soon as it issues this UDP instruction.

What Protection software are you running?

I don't always update software immediately to the latest release, so this may be a problem of my own making, but FWIW here's what I experienced recently.

I was running JTAlert v2.16.10 with whatever version of the Callsign Database was current with that release. I realized that the older Callsign Database was the reason all users were showing a last LoTW update in July. I installed the Callsign Database v2020.11.18 and that took care of the LoTW problem. But it introduced a NEW problem. When right-clicking on an alert to send a message to the operator, I was no longer getting an ONLINE or OFFLINE indication in the message window. I updated JTAlert to v2.16.16 and now all is well again.

I was not aware that updating the Callsign Database by itself could be a problem, but it was in this case.

Thanks for a great program!

73,

John, K9MM

John,

Sorry to "burst your bubble". Updating the Callsign database is not the fix. All that installer does is install 2 sqlite database files. That will not affect Text Messaging. Likely the Text Message service was either having issues at the time or one of its listening ports (there are 4) was temporarily down.

Sorry, I don't have an answer at this time. I am unable to reproduce the defect. Part of the problem is that the line numbers in these errors are typically grossly incorrect and don't point at the true cause. There is likely a coding/logic error, but I haven't found it yet.

At this time, since you already tried 2.16.15, your best to downgrade JTAlert to 2.16.14

Doesn't sound like a JTAlert issue to me.

The only logging notification popup produced by JTAlert is either a "success" or "failure" popup produced post-logging and it doesn't contain any Date/Time information.

Please post an image of the popup you believe is from JTAlert.

Are the QSOs being logged with the correct Date/Time despite the popup error?

Are you perhaps referring to the wsjtx "Log QSO" window?

For the guy who asked why...the sound alerts would not work on the later version and I also had issues with the UDP not talking the DXlab so I went back to the fault free earlier version.

That version is?

Regarding the sound problems, that is likely a UDP issue as well. JTAlert itself doesn't produce sounds, but sends a UDP command to the JTAlertV2.Manager.exe process which is responsible for playing all audio. JTAlert doesn't talk UDP to DXLab, that is purely DDE and TCPIP, and both of those are handled by the same manager process.

It sounds to me like your Protection software (what are you running?) didn't like the newer builds of JTAlert and was blocking all the network traffic to/from the Manager process. There is nothing I can do about overly aggressive or configured Protection software.

That's a WSJT-X error message referencing a WSJT-X temp file.   You're not running any programs 'as administrator' are you?

Rather than further investigate why my version of Log4OM2 isn't playing nice with LoTW, I proceeded to download N3FJP and gave it a whirl; N3FJP was simple to set up, easy to understand/use, and works well with LoTW - I think that I'll stick with it, despite the minimal fee.

I did finally get my WAS (Mixed) award, with WV and MA particularly difficult in coming by.

Thanks, everyone, for your helpful feedback and comments.

Hmmm...it's 12-03 and the 03 could be interpreted as March which means tomorrow it would say April and yesterday would have been February.

Did you change your data/time settings?

Go to Date & TIme Settings
Scroll down to Related Settings and pick Date, time & regional formatting

See if it's different than this
