Re: Pathfinder 3.0

I had downloaded the search library before but again it was a
matter of not reading "all" the directions. I assumed that all I
had to do was download and unzip the library. Now that I have read
more as you pointed out and tried it, things are working much
better.

When you install Pathfinder 3.0, the included search library is
obsolete. Step 7 of the download/installation instructions (
http://www.qsl.net/pathfinder/DownloadInstall.htm )
suggests that you
immediately upgrade your search library. The problems
you and Robin
cite, now that I recall the search changes since
Pathfinder 3.0 was
released, are almost certainly due obsolete searche files.

To update your search files, follow the instructions at
http://www.qsl.net/pathfinder/UpdateSearchLibrary.htm . After
performing this download, you must update the searches
associated
with buttons, e.g. QRZ and DXS. This procedure is described in
http://www.qsl.net/pathfinder/AssignSearchButton.htm .

I acknowledge that this process could be more automated -- the
original Pathfinder design assumed that users would
update searches
themselves, and directly exchange the files, rather
than rely on a
centralized repository that a few people maintain. I do
plan a major
Pathfinder update that will make search library
updating a completely
automatic process.

have to type it in again and do the search from

thing happens with BUCK.COM, WM7D works fine. DXC R
gives me a 404
Object not found error, DXS gives me an Internal
Server Error, DXM
gives me a 404 error. When I type in my own callsign in the
Pathfinder window, the pop up site that comes up is Deja (very
strange for a W3 call) clicking on Deja gives me a
400 Bad Request
error.

Can't be that Dave. I access qrz.com almost every day
by typing the
URL into my web browser, with no problems. It is only
when I try to
access it with Pathfinder that I get the message
"You are not
authorised to view this page" But for the record, I did
change the
security settings, with no effect

To verify this, start Internet Explorer and display
http://www.qrz.com. If you get the "you're not
authorized..."
message, then modify security settings as suggested
in the next
paragraph. If qrz.com works fine, then my hypothesis
is incorrect.

To change security settings from within Internet
Explorer, click on
its Tools menu, and select the "Internet Security"
tab. You can use
http://www.qrz.com as a test case -- if you've
sufficiently
loosened
security to the point where Internet Explorer will
display this
page,
then then Pathfinder should be able to display QSL
information
pages.

Let me know how it goes...
