Re: Commander and DXKeeper sequencing


This discussion is beyond my level of understanding. However I frequently initialize DXK before Commander.  WSJT-X is brought up automatically by my launcher. When I close WSJT-X and bring up Commander, Commander passes frequency to DXK and communicates with DXK without any problems.

 I surmise that Commander not running in Administrator mode prevented some communication with DXKeeper at least in one direction. 

+ This was the reason that DXKeeper and Commander weren't interoperating when DXKeeper was started first: Windows would not convey the "I exist" message from Commander to DXKeeper because Commander was running at a lower level of administrative privilege.

+ Most DXLab users let the Launcher install itself and the rest of the DXLab applications in the default folder C:\DXLab which doesn't require giving Administrative privileges to any of the applications. Only if you install DXLab applications in what Windows considers to be a "protected folder", like

c:\program files\x86

+ are administrative privileges required. See
