Installed complete suite in Windows 11 Computer.  Spot Collector has no background colors showing for LOTW, eQSL, etc.

+ Set the background colors in the "Background Colors" panel on the Configuration window's "Spot Database Display" tab.

+ If the background colors are already set, have you directed DXView to install its eQSL and LoTW databases? Check the Databases tab of DXView's Configuration; if they haven't been installed, first terminate DXKeeper and SpotColllector, and then direct DXView to install those databases.

That was the exact problem.  THANK YOU!   

 

Dave, I am honestly amazed, no actually astounded that you answered my question so quickly and of course dead on with the solution.  Myself and thousands of others are in your debt.
