This week's update includes a new feature in which N1MM+ will detect/download/install a file for you, rather than requiring you to separately open a browser, find the file and download it. I haven't updated the website documentation yet, but here's how it works:
For Call History Files and Sample Function Key Files:
In the >File >Open Log in Database dialog window, select the >Associated Files tab. Press the [CHANGE] button adjacent to the labels for Call History Filename or Function Key Filename.
If there is a file on the website that matches this contest name, a dialog window will open and ask whether you want to assign it to this contest. If you answer Yes, the file is downloaded and installed. If you answer No, a File Explorer window will open for you to choose a local file (the way N1MM+ has worked for years).
To prevent you from harm - for example, overwriting a Function Key .MC file that you customized with personal preferences - any existing file of the same name will be archived with a .BAK designation.
This feature should be popular with groups like CWOPS whose Call History file changes on a weekly basis.
