Exactly, what do you mean by "to keep up"? What are you experiencing?

Also, please keep in mind, I don't get any early access to the WSJT-X betas. I only get access after it has gone public, and with time-zone differences, most users have access to the software several hours before I do. When I do get to download WSJT-X it is only then that I can do any sort of JTAlert  testing.

What problem is that that JTAlert needs to fix?
What is happening with the Beta that requires a JTAlert change/fix?
I'm confused, I don't see anything in this message thread that relates to a JTAlert deficiency.

When you checked to see what ports were assigned in WSJT-X, what did you find? Did you also check to see if the port went to sleep? That seems like a likely suspect. Power savings should be disabled on all ports, as previously mentioned on this forum a few times a week it seems.

I'm no computer expert, so wait for others to respond.  I'm just wondering why they are hidden files?   Mine show up in Device Manager and in Control Panel Sound.  You can turn on "hidden files", but I don't remember where.  Something sounds fishy to me.  Check your Settings>Audio to be sure you Codecs are selected.  73 Herb WB8ASI

Hi Jay,

I'm curious as to why you would choose the 32-bit version of WSJT-X on a 64-bit system? The 64-bit version of WSJT-X has clear performance advantages.

Hi Bill,

I'm having settings problems with the new 2.2.0-rc1.  Both 32 bit and 64 bit behave the same. Tried both.  Have had no problems in the past.

In the following I'm running WSJT-X 2.2.0-rc1 64 bit with rig control to a Flex 6500 on Win 8.0.

Here's an example of what happens:

I've turned the 6500 output to zero, so no RFI issues.  WSJT-X Pwr set as per normal for audio drive..

I call CQ with a three minute time out.  Rig control is working.

After one or two CQs WSJT-X does a "Halt TX", disabling TX.  Much of the time this also disables the rig control and I get the "Rig Control Error" splash screen.  

I can OK that to go to the "Radio Setting" screen, OK again and I go back to the program and rig control works again. I need to hit "Enable TX" to continue.  

If I power up the 6500 and get a QSO going, WSJT-X will often disable TX again during the QSO so I have to manually re-Enable. And often I'll get the "Rig Control Error" again,

It seems settings are getting lost somehow along the way.  It's difficult to see a pattern.

Some of my "General" settings weren't carried over from 2.1.2 but once reset, they stay..

Ken, AB1J

Hi Ken,

when you get a "Rig control error" message box please report the full error including the details. For your convenience you can copy the full error text including the details to the Windows clipboard simply by hitting CTRL+C while the error message box has keyboard focus (the 'X' to the right of the title bar showing with a red background). Then paste (CRTL+V) the clipboard text into a reply to this message please?

I use the native "FlexRadio 6xxx “ driver with no problems at all. 

I use the CAT PTT.

CAT has to have the proper port setup:


And this is how it looks in WSJT-X

Why didn't you install the 64 bit version, its actually faster than the 32 bit version, and will still work on Win7.
