Re: Fldigi 4 won't start. Just flashes and goes away.

Dear Paul,

I managed to launch FLDIGI.
First I uninstalled it, re installed , same no progress, further I just started to launch different programs to see, if only FLDIGI is affected,
DIGIPAN and  WSJT smoothly running, Mix4W a trial version also failed to start .
I made system restore back to 24/02, install FLDIGI and it is running.
I will give it a try after, resetting and some macros editing.
Mix4W not installed.

Paul, I will up date you on the progress.
Hope to meet on the frequency.

I don't know that the issue I'm stating below is the same issue that you are facing, but I've seen that when I've configured fldigi to work with a particular USB sound dongle, then close fldigi, then disconnect the USB sound dongle from the PC, then restart fldigi (with that USB sound dongle NOT connected to the computer) that fldigi will briefly show the fldigi window on the computer and then close on its own, with the window flash lasting about 500ms.  If I then reconnect that USB sound dongle to the computer and then start fldigi, then fldigi with operate OK again, no problem.  Close fldigi, disconnect the USB sound card, restart fldigi and it will again flash the window for about 500ms and then close on its own.

It's as though if fldigi doesn't see the USB sound card it expects to see it just closes (immediately closes) right after startup.
