Hi Laurie,

I am turning off and on NA decodes very frequently, and B4 off and on less frequently.  

And I agree that from a structural perspective having Filters centralized is best.   

It's not really an inconvenience to do the Settings > Filters process - I just thought it would be 'neat' to be able to do it from the Callsigns window.

For me ... "Show only callsigns generating alerts"! I turn that on
when a band is busy (e.g., 20 meters) and off when a band has a
relatively low number of stations (e.g., 6 meters, 10 meters, 12
meters most of the time).

Mike,
I agree the Filtering needs to be moved to the Callsigns window, but there are complications.
Currently, the decodes feed that the Callsigns window receives from the main JTAlert process (the old main window) is already filtered. To move the Filtering to the Callsigns window would require that the decode feed from the main window be unfiltered, that makes sense, but some filtering is occurring in the Alerts generated code which is still within the bowels of the old code. There are some filtering options I could easily move right now, but I chose not to do that to avoid likely user confusion by having filter options in two different parts of the program.

The Own Call alert will play a sound when someone calls you. The default sound for that Alert is a rapid "ding ding".
There is an Alert with a default sound of "beep beep", that is the end of TX/RX period Alert. Perhaps your confusing the two or had previously changed the sounds used. Regardless, none of those Alerts have changed with 2.50.1, they are still available.

NO! There is no need to run JTAlert with elevated privileges!  If you have to do that it will be because you have other programs that JTAlert is interacting with set to run elevated. There should never be any normal need to do this. Running multiple applications elevated severely compromises the security of your PC. I do not recommend that. If your turn off the "Run as administrator" settings of your other applications, there will not be a need to run JTAlert elevated.

Frans,

Please post an image of the actual error window, it contains additional information that will help identify the cause of the error.

You can ignore the AutoIT error, that is due to the Manager error and JTAlert closing down before it had finished its startup initialization.

Since JTAlert was working correctly previously, your installation may now be compromised with missing files. A reinstall of JTAlert should fix that. However, if there are missing files, that could indicate that your PC Protection software has decided to suddenly dislike JTAlert and has either removed files or is preventing JTAlert from starting its Manager program.

With JTAlert 2.50.1 the "Online" star symbol (not badge) is turned off for the Callers display as the space is taken up by the delete icon (cross). The symbol is still visible in the main display area. So there is no setting to make that visible in the Callers display.

However, with the upcoming JTAlert 2.50.2 release there have been a number of significant changes to the Callsigns window. One of those changes is that the "Online" symbol is visible in the Callers display area. Also the symbol used is user-settable (from a pre-defined list of 19 symbols).
