Re: Passcode request (posted to main group)

You can download the .ZIP file to anywhere.  It is critically important, however, that you UNZIP the contents into a newly-created, empty, and not protected (like not under Program Files) directory.  Then make sure you execute APRSIS32.EXE from within that newly created directory.

By placing the .ZIP into the directory where you unzipped it, it is still possible that you double-clicked a folder view of the .ZIP and not the unzipped .EXE file.

The behavior you are describing may be Rob's first issue, but it certainly describes what you see when you double-click a .ZIP view.

Try going to the following URL and see if you get a map tile.

Cross posting to the APRSIS32 group.

That sounds like 2 possibilities:
1. having an issue connectin to the internet (port blockled) and you can't download maps
    I know I can't download maps when I am at work - it is blocked.
2. the folder access for either the APRSIS32.xml or maps

Is there an APRSIS32.XML file in the folder you tried installing it into?
You can attach that and maybe there will be a clue.

Robert, thank you for emailing me back.

After downloading the zip file to the C drive into its own folder,(not under programs) I unzipped the file. It required me to insert my call sign and the pass code you gave me.

After entering this I was expecting the map to show up for me to enter my location, as shown by the video? All that would show up was a white box across my screen a half inch wide 6 inchess long with a small blue square flashing on and off.

I tried many times and gave up.

When starting the exe file you are required to enter call sign and ssid, and enter. That’s is as far as I can get

I am not sure what you are referring to with"Filled the required fields on start up.  Aprsis32 no responding message?"
What are you expecting?

Are you getting stations in the scroll bar (left side) that are coming in from APRS-IS?

You can check your status by enabling logging
  >Menu >Enables >logging >Port(APRSIS)
This will allow you to see the interaction with the APRS-IS server.

If you disable APRS-IS and re-enable the port with logging, you can see if there are any errors
