Squawk alerts don't work in any of the 3.x Betas. It's a bug.

How come I just received a squawk alert then?

Maybe because you don't have aircraft un-highlight themselves either?

Your installation seems to be blessed Tarbat... :)

I have alerts set up under Sqawk codes , mode S codes and registrations and they are all working for me both the message on screen and the sound. I am using version 3.06. Maybe a stupid question but have you ensured you have  ticked the appropriate boxes.

And the key to solving these types of problem is to understand the differences between my installation and those having problems.  On alerts, check that each squawk code is on a new line, and that there aren't any extra spurious new lines in the list of squawk codes.

While I would agree with what you say, I think it's important that the program doesn't allow a setup that won't work. It should either give an error, or better, correct the error when it stores the alert settings in the registry.

7700 codes are relatively rare, so they are not the best test of the alert system.

I'm pleased to see that if I get an alert for say registration and aircraft type, that the alert shows both reasons in the popup.
