From your response below, it sounds like the log file you've specified on the Log tab of DXKeeper's configuration window doesn't exist.

Have you logged QSOs or imported them from an ADIF file?

Here are the two errors from the error log report. After the first error I created the path is was looking for. Then the second error pops up and I'm at a standstill.

>>>At the bottom of the "Spot Database" tab of SpotCollector's Configuration window, which option is selected in the "L:og file referenced for award progress" panel at the bottom of the tab? If the "Use Log in specified pathname" option is selected, what pathname is specified?

Query operator when DXKeeper Log changes is selected.

The JOE DX TEST works but when a spot comes down, no voice.

>>>SpotCollector's announcements are triggered by the creation of Spot Database Entries for DX stations that are "needed" for award progress. Since SpotCollector cannot open your log file, nothing is considered "needed", so Joe DX remains silent.

Uh, OK!!!
