Locked Re: WSPR runs into an error and then quits WSJTX - Advice Please #WSPR

H Ray,

Hi All
I have been running WSJTX for a year or so without a problem and I decided to try out WSPR.
I am using version 2.2.2 0d9b96 - and yes I know its an old version but I am fairly sure this is not the cause.

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.

When I run WSPR the error comes up saying that it cannot find a file location to save some files - the location it mentions is from my old computer. So I need to somehow change the file location to the new location. I assume this is the problem. I have attached images of the error reports in the sequence that they occur.

I just need to correct this error and then I can update to a newer version of WSJTX (please suggest latest stable version) - I am concerned that updating the current installation may throw up additional errors !
The current stable version is 2.5.4 but v 2.6.0 will probably be released soon so you might want to wait for that to avoid multiple upgrades.
I have copied the text of the error as follows:
'Running: C:\WSJT\wsjtx\bin\wsprd -C 500 -o 4 -d -a C:\Users\james\AppData\Local\WSJT-X -f 50.293000 "C:/Users/Ray Red/AppData/Local/WSJT-X/save/220704_2126.wav"
Cannot open data file 'C:/Users/Ray Red/AppData/Local/WSJT-X/save/220704_2126.wav'

"Ray Red" is my old laptop computer where WSJTX was running previously - I had not used WSPR prior to installing on my new current pc.
Go to File => Settings => Audio tab and change "Save Directory" to


I have had a search on prior posts for this problem but have not found anything which solves the problem.
I hope you can help
