Slice master keeps resetting

WA5YOMWA5YOM Member
I have Slice Master v0.10.5e and WSJT-X v1.9.1 running.

WSJT starts and stops on it own.......while it is running all is good.....

It appears to me that it is loosing communications with the Flex.....thus it turns off.....

The error message from Slice Master when it disconnects, is that it never connected....

Sometimes it does not restart...when that occurs.....I check the Slice Master Launch tab and see that "Never" is selected , where as it was previously selected....

Thanks.

    Hi Tim,

    I'm happy to help with your issue.  I dont always see every post here that mentions Slice Master but I do try.  If you're having trouble, the email address in the Slice Master splash screen is a good way to get my attention.  

    First make sure you are running the latest version v0.10.5e is currently available at

    https://github.com/k1dbo/slice-master-6000/releases

    Then, after you see the problem again, please send me a zip of your Slice Master config folder... just navigate to

        C:Users<your user name>AppDataLocalK1DBO

    then right-click on slice-master and select 'Send toCompressed (zipped) folder'.  This will create a zip file that you can then attach to your email.  The logs in that zip should give me a pretty good idea of what's going on.

    Tim and Don,

    I have seen this issue,  but usually cured by starting SliceMaster first then SmartSDR ..  My meager observance.

    Dudley,

    Thanks for the comment.  Slice Master does have a couple of "start up" issues that I've yet to work out.  I usually suggest 1) radio, 2) SSDR, then 3) Slice Master.  But I know others have luck with different sequences.  I'm pretty sure at this point though that the radio needs to be running before Slice Master.  The radio chooser option is the root of that problem.  There is also something about starting up Slice Master without a TX slice selected that sometimes causes problems.

    There's also an email address on Slice Master's start up screen.

    Does anyone know how to do an uninstall?,,,,,it runs as an executable...so I don't see it as installed....maybe something is left over in the registry?

    Tim,

    Slice Master is just an executable and doesnt use the registry at all.  It does create a folder where it keeps its config files and log files.  To completely remove Slice Master from your computer, just remove C:/Users/<your name here>/AppData/K1DBO along with any copy of the executable.

    It has files in "both", wherever you extracted it to, and run it from, and also in C:Users(Your Username)AppDataLocalK1DBO , removing those should be all that's necessary, to clean it all out. There may be Registry records but I've never seen a need to clean it out of the registry.

    Yes....What I thought...just and executable.....was hoping that there might be something that was corrupted that needed to be uninstalled.
    Since it is always resetting when operating WSJTX....it is not useable for me in that mode....
    WSJTX runs fine when not launched from Slicemaster
    Thanks,
