locked AutoIT Error


Consistently, shortly after starting JTAlert and WSJT-X, I get the AutoIT Error message shown here:

When I ack the error message, JTAert terminates.  If I take no action, JTAlert terminates.  The line number shown in the message is consistent - it does not change.  This error started appearing followiing a rebuild of my system due to hard dixk crash, but I have not been able to identify or correct the problem.  It is identical for WSJT-X 2.2.2 and 2.3.0, also for JTAlert version 2.16.17 and its predecessor.
The JTAlert About panel gives me the following information:

Since JTAlert doesn't crash immediately after starting and that you can open the About window suggests that it is the incoming decodes from WSJT-X that is the trigger.

How many Callsign display lines do you have set in JTAlert?
Try turning off WSJT-X monitor, starting JTAlert then changing the number of Callsign lines to a different value, wait for JTAlert to redraw itself then set the number of lines back to the original. Do that still experience the error once you enable WSJT-X monitor after making the Callsign Lines changes?

Please start JTAlert with WSJT-X monitor turned off (to prevent receiving decodes) then use the "Help" -> "Contact Support" menu, on the main JTAlert window, to send me your JTAlert files for analysis.
