I have installed this from another computer to a newer computer and I copied across the files as per the instructions for moving WSJTX to a new computer.
I have had a search on prior posts for this problem but have not found anything which solves the problem.Ray,
The easy way is to install WSJT-X properly. Then all the locations are created and you are running in minutes.
Where did you get your instructions? Unless I misunderstand what you are doing it is very difficult to get a program running without using an installation program.
