Error log overwrite of Help file


W5IO
 

Hi All

I just did an import of the MMTTY   ADI file from the contest this weekend. The error file it created has replaced the HELP file so that now when I click help, the Error Log file opens. 

Is there a way to fix this? I looked at http://dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/InstallingDXLabApplications  but don't see just the HELP file as a download.





Thanks

+ Help files have a file extension of .htm

+ An error file created when importing an ADIF file has a file extension of .txt

+ Thus I do not understand how importing an ADIF file could replace a Help file.

+ All of DXLab's Help files are available online via the "Online Reference Documentation" column of the table in

https://www.dxlabsuite.com/download.htm#Documentation

Is there a way to fix this? I looked at http://dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/InstallingDXLabApplications but don't see just the HELP file as a download.

+ Which Help button are you clicking in which application when an error log is displayed instead of help?

This is only happening in DXKeeper. When I click HELP, it's going to the Configurations folder and opening Log Page Display W5IO.txt 

I don't know how or why it's gotten misdirected from the HELP folder, but that is what it's doing.

Maury,

Which Help button are you clicking? There's one on each tab of each
window in DXKeeper, and they all point to different help files. What
is the full URL or filename that opens when you click?

Actually, thinking about this some more; I bet that the path to an
ErrorLog.tx file (or some other file) has been inadvertently entered
as the "Browser pathname" in the Guidance Panel on the General tab of
DXKeeper Configuration.

Maury, check there, and if there's anything specified for Browser
pathname, remove it (make it blank), and try Help again....

Hi Iain 

This is the path: 

C:\DXLab\DXKeeper\Configurations\Log Page Display W5IO.txt

When I look in the DXKeeper HELP folder there is not .exe file to select.

When I look in the DXKeeper HELP folder there is not .exe file to
select.
As Iain suggested in his e-mail, remove *everything* from the
"Browser Pathname" box in the Guidance tab of DXkeeper Config.
