Hi Dave,
Thanks for your follow up.  If you can find a way for AC Log to problematically detect that message from the TQSL software, I will be glad to.  That said, since AC Log will continue to work with the new version of TQSL as is, I am not planning a new AC Log release for the near term.
Enjoy!
73, Scott

If you are doing changes, can you change things so the TQSL, do you want
to update, window comes up in front of the ACL application, and not
hidden behind it, when TQSL needs an update?
