One big issue that has been mentioned before and has just struck me down...again

If when you load ANRB and then choose not to run it by clicking Cancel the next time you run it you get the default screen with the Vertical Tracking View at the bottom and no interface.

Also gone is the complete Alerts list preferences, Smartview of course, default METAR & Home Location amongst others...God only knows what else?

If you then go to run a previous version it too has lost its settings...

Really annoying and totally unecessary in my opinion.

Just what is it with AirNav and User Preferences anyway??

Regards,
-=Glyn=-

I'll leave the new version running overnight, but I see it's exactly the same .EXE as the previous release, so don't expect any problems.

The same .exe?

Well I am seeing that damn sleepy pointer and some strange menu behaviour back again...too coincidental to be anything but the latest version I have just installed and run...

When I am navigating the menus (as I need to do to reset all of the settings lost as per my last post) the menu will sometimes disappear leaving just the menu name in the title bar highlighted.

I can run my mouse along the title bar and as I do each menu name, File, Filters, Map, Tools, Window, Help etc. will highlight to show which menu is selected but the menu does not show.

I then have to click the bar again to actually display the menu...

<sigh>

Do I sound frustrated?

Regards,
-=Glyn=-

"If when you load ANRB and then choose not to run it by clicking Cancel the next time you run it you get the default screen with the Vertical Tracking View at the bottom and no interface."

Corrected.

"Also gone is the complete Alerts list preferences, Smartview of course, default METAR & Home Location amongst others...God only knows what else?"

Have installed the upgrade, the full version or just replaced the exe?

"When I am navigating the menus (as I need to do to reset all of the settings lost as per my last post) the menu will sometimes disappear leaving just the menu name in the title bar highlighted."

Please drop me an email regarding this one ASAP.

Thanks for the correction...as I have been caught out before I keep all of my Alerts in a spreadsheet ready for quick input into ANRB but its really annoying all the same!

OK...I have sent you an email as requested but I do have to be up for work in less than 5 hours...

Kind regards,
-=Glyn=-

We haven't received any email from GlynH so we will have to wait one more day for the final release.

Sometimes its a bit difficult to work out where to email you, your signoff says [email protected] but your profile says [email protected] :)

[email protected] should not be used. It is our customer support email.
You should always use [email protected] to contact me directly. I'm sorry for the problem.

But your pm also gave another email address where you were supposed to be online at that time and bearing in mind there have been problems with your email address at airnavsystems.com I sent it to the alternative address you left...

The last time I ran ANRB before going to bed just 4 hours ago it sat there displaying the start-up splash screen for an extended period of time...

TaskManager reported ANRB.exe as Not Responding but then after a few minutes it decided to start.

This was following the fresh install and a reboot using the default databases (small) which usually speed up the loading process.

I have not/will not have time to test again most of the day as I need to be out of the door shortly for work...

As my last email said as I seem to be the lone voice in the wilderness again so why not just go ahead and release it anyway?

-=Glyn=-

All good here, other than the full install overwriting my existing log file.

fwiw - Also running with the new Microsoft Security Essentials, no impact noted.

Always a good idea to rename your existing RB directory so that the 'fresh' install doesn't overwrite anything - or to prevent having a mixture of old/new files.

It's also easy to then copy across your database files from the old installation to the new one if you want to.
