DXKeeper marathon results not showing up after moving to new computer

Phil Deaver
 

My computer crashed and I moved files to the new computer. Most items are working fine (DX keeper logs, DX View, DXCC progress, WAS progress) but the Marathon progress isn't working. Shows zero zones, zero countries. I've downloaded the 2021 spreadsheet and hit "recompute". Still lack of all QSOs. 
Suggestions?

Re: I'd like to use SpotCollectors Text Message Alert Function

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your patience with my effort to configure my Gmail account to accept email messages from SpotCollector.
I have created an app password, inserted it as the password in the Email Alarm tab's Outgoing Mail Server password entry box and successfully tested the email alarm. HURRAH.

K4KGG, Larry

I use Gmail for SC to send text alerts.  I have 2 Factor Authentication setup for Gmail so I used an App Password for SC.  Works fine,

Will look into that tomorrow. Maybe it a bit more pain free than Gmail.

Re: Got the maybe new installation blues

Donald Weissgerber
 

Try using Revo Uninstaller  ,,, it does a very good job of picking up fragments of installed programs. It actually does a better job than the supplied uninsatller programs, and even if they are broken, it will still seek out and remove registry entries, folders and files. Use the most thorough scan option.

I have a Gmail account and use email alarms with it, but like I said
before; I think after some period of time Google turns off the "Less
secure app" access option. I say that because I had it working for the
13 Colonies special event and when I tried it for the ones I needed for
the current Route 66 special event, Gmail complained about an unsecure
app trying to login to my account. So, I had to turn on the "Less secure
app" option again. Sorry, I don't recall the process to turn on the
"Less secure app" access option for ones Gmail account.

I have smtp.gmail.com for the outgoing mail server address, server
requires authentication checked, port number 465, SSL and encryption
required checked.

Perhaps the app password route is the better way to go, but I have no
experience with that.

Indeed!
In addition to the DXLabLauncher I just installed, there are...

DXLabLauncher
DXKeeper
DXView all three installed on 7/29/2012

I tried to delete them in Control Panel/Programs and Features but they all returned the error: "Could not open logfile C:\DXLab\Launcher\ST6UNST.Log" or "Could not open logfile C:\DXLab\DXKeeper\ST6UNST.Log", etc.

Am I correct in guessing that before I can do a fresh install, these things have to be removed. I can't seem to find any references to them anywhere.
Is it a Registry issue?

+ You have violated a fundamental rule of Windows: never delete an installed application until you've first directed Windows to uninstall it.

+ By deleting the folders into which you installed DXLab applications back on 2012, you have prevented Windows from uninstalling those applications because the files need to perform the uninstall operation are no longer present, e.g. ST6UNST.Log.

+ At this point, you have two choices:

1. backup every critical file and application installer, then re-install Windows, then re-install your applications, then install the DXLab Launcher, and then direct the Launcher to install your DXLab applications

or

2. Use a "Registry Cleaner" application to remove all vestiges every DXLab application, including the Launcher. Then install the Launcher, and direct the Launcher to install your DXLab applications.

+ I cannot recommend a "Registry Cleaner" application, as over the years there have been reports here of problems with each of them.

Launcher/Config shows only Launcher is installed...nothing else.  Under the heading "action"
are "Upgrade" buttons.  When I push an Upgrade button, I get the message:
"can't Upgrade Commander  C:\DXLab 2012\Commander\CI-V Commander.exe does not exist; Upgrade aborted

I've overlooked something or am doing something wrong.
Any help would be appreciated.

+ That the Launcher's buttons for each DXLab application are colored red means that settings in the Windows Registry show those applications to be installed.


+ That the error message when you direct the Launcher to upgrade Commander references the folder 

C:\DXLab 2012\Commander

+ implies that you installed DXLab applications on this computer back in 2012, but that the folder in which you installed them no longer exists.

+ In the Windows Control panel, please run the "uninstall an application" applet, and inspect the list of installed applications that it displays. Are any or your DXLab applications listed as installed?
