6400M with N3FJP Log

Has anyone run into this before? When I start up SmartSDR while N3FJP's Amateur Contact Log is running it causes SmartSDR 's window to drop out every time I select any function on the SmartSDR screen. If I load N3FJP *after* starting SmartSDR, it functions perfectly. Easy work around but a real nag. I had to shut down my log anytime I load SmartSDR.

    I am running SmartSDR 3.2.39 and AC Log 7.0.4. No issues.

    In AC Log Rig setup, did you choose Flex API?

    Any other software running?

    Sorry, you're having an issue.

    What's the OS your using?

    What hardware is in your computer like memory...?

    What all is running in the way of software like firewalls, and antivirus...?

    I am running both programs and it does not matter what order I start them in so don't think your problem is the programs in use as much as it could be the computer system or network?

    Please give us more information so that we can try and help.

    All the best, Tom KN4JX

    @Mike J You probably have "Focus Helper" turned on. Go into "Settings>Radio Setup>Radio>" At the bottom of the tab will be focus helper. Set it to "None".

    Ed I run focus helper and I do not have the problem he is describing. Is it happening to you whit ACLog?

    Hi Tom,

    That's the problem I had with ACLog. Focus helper set for ACLog caused it.

    Mike, are you running SmartSDR on a pc at the same time as the 6400 screen is enabled? In other words, is multi flex being used?

    I am running Win 7. 16 megs RAM. It doesn't matter if I am running both the radio and SmartSDR or just SmartSDR. I did a restart with only smartSDR and ACLog and if I load SmartSDR after ACLog, any click on the SmardSDR screen will close it. It does not crash SmartSDR, it only mins the screen. Ed, I will check on "Focus Helper". Currently, I do not have ACLog interfaced with the Flex

    @Mike J I turned on focus help once again yesterday. I turned it off again today. It kept me from using the tabs in SmartSDR.

    Ed, Thanks. That did it.
