Re: DXView File Type Pop-Up

Jeff, K6JW

Hi Gilbert,
   Thanks. I think you're right about not having a default setting for the KML file type. I'm not sure what that should be or how to add it. The file type isn't listed on the computer as a file type on the screen that shows all the file types. I'll need to figure out how to do that. Thanks again.

Every time I booted DXView, I got a pop-up that asked me how I want to open .kml files. It appears that this file type is associated with Google Earth. In the attempt to get rid of the pop-up (which could be cleared by hitting the Escape key), I tried several options in the drop down box in the pop-up. None worked, and each simply has yielded another error screen. How can I stop this from happening? Anyone else had the problem?

+ Has DXView always done this, or is this new behavior? If the latter, when did it start? What changes did you make to your hardware or software around that time?

+ On the "World Map" tab of DXView's Configuration window, is the "Google Earth" panel's Enable box checked?
