Locked Re: [english 99%] Re: [WSJTX] Sparting problems wit the beta version

Hi Steve,

thanks for the issue report and further details. This is a known problem with some Windows Language selections, it is related to the region settings of the decimal point and number grouping characters and the rleationship between them. We have a work around for the next release and the issue has been reported to the Qt development team as the issue is within their framework.

If you wish to try out v2.2.0 RC1 you can try changing the number grouping or decimal point settings in the Windows "Region->Advanced" panel, I'm not sure what settings will fix it for your locale but I suspect DP as '.' and number grouping as ',' may work. Obviously this will affect all applications and Windows itself, so you may wish to revert to v2.1.2 until we get the next release out.

Hi Steve,

does wsjtx start but not show the UI, i.e. is it visible in Windows Task Manager? What version of Windows are you using?
