Re: Moving Program and Database to Another Computer

I did a fresh install last summer on a new machine, and then copied the N1MM+ folder in Documents to the new machine's identical location.  It's working fine.

Good Evening,
What procedure would I need to perform to copy N1MM plus and all my database data for a new computer?

Is there an easy way to do this?

Re: Consolidating databases

Pete Smith
 

Seems sensible, but for contrast I am using a database that was set up in 2014 and is currently about 9 megabytes in size.  Plan to start a new one in 2019.

You are correct, it is probably better not to let a database file get too large, but I don't know quantitatively what "too large" actually is. A new database every year seems to work quite well.

Re: Non-USA Keyboards

Tom Wagner (N1MM)
 

Sorry for my imprecise language.  None of that should matter.  What should matter is whether Windows understands the layout of the keyboard you are using and (maybe) that you are using it for a locale for which it is appropriate.

Each key on a keyboard is identified with a scan code.  Most are standard across all locales, some like "=", are not.

If you could try the experimental spectrum window version available on the web site with any of the non-USA keyboards you have, that would help.  The key to test is the "=" key which should resend the last cw message.

Tom

HB9BUN reported a problem with the "=" not working on a German keyboard. That problem report led to a solution that may be applicable to other keys that have varied locations on international keyboards. The "=" fix should work for all windows supported keyboards used in their native locales.

I would like to extend this solution to other keys that users have trouble with on their local keyboards. Please post the keys you have trouble with in this thread. It would be nice to address 3 or 4 keys in the Tuesday build to see how well the fix works..

The number of contests is probably of little or no consequence - it's the total number of QSOs that matters most.

Make sure the SentExch in the contest dialog matches the program setup instructions. Do not add extra spaces.

Re: Different behaviour of "!" macro in CW and digi messages

HB9BUN
 

Thanks Martin. Same behaviour here. Never looked at the side-effects of changing the last QSO on "!", nor call-frame, bandmap. ;-) It would be really be nice to see the "!" makro being initailized, refreshed and used consistently in digi as is in CW.

Re: "=" key with no effect

Tom Wagner (N1MM)
 

Ok, I made another change.  I hadn't thought about you pressing the shift key to get "=", so I put in code to handle that as well.

Try the latest from the same place.

Again, let me know asap if it works.

With your default keyboard mapping loaded, did you try the same key (next to the backspace, lower case)?  Regardless of what it is on your mapping?
