Cannot save changed Colours
« on: July 26, 2012, 11:52:21 AM »
Hi All,
I want to change the colours I set up some time ago, as my poor old eyes need some help.
I changed the colours for Airports, Flights ascending and descending, and types 25-30 (which I've discovered changes the Airport Outline).
Unfortunately, I can't save these changes.
I've tried "Export" to both Realradar and Newcolor1 from preferences, and I've tried "Save as" to both default and Home from the Map Drop down Menu. Sadly, on restarting the programme, the origimals remain.
Is there a bug, sorry, 'feature' in the Windows 7 64 bit version of ANRB 4.03 that prevents this?
Any advice gratefully received.
Cheers

Dave

Hi Dave

Save ("Export") them as "Real Radar" and as "Default".

Also to play safe, use Window...Record Desktop.

That should sort it.

Hi Rod,

I already tried Export_Real radar, and Default, and they didn't work.

I'll try the Window...Record Desktop trick; fingers crossed !

Hi Again,

Sadly, there's no difference; I'll have another investigate tonight at Home.

Cheers

Hmmm.. I wonder if this is the dreaded Windows 7 Virtual Store problem.  Did you install to the default directory, or to one such as c:\Airnav ?

If you did install to the default directory, you might find that you now have two copies of the colours files - one where you saved them, and one that RadarBox is using!

Try a disk search for Default.mcl - that might lead you to the correct folder.

Hi Rob.

Thanks for bearing with me.

As it's a Works Laptop I'm using, I installed onto my d: Drive.
Interestingly, the search found no instances of default.mcl.

I wonder ifan uninstall and a re-install onto the c: Drive may help ?

I've not heard of anyone installing any programs on D: so I've no idea if that could be the problem.

It may well be worth trying it on C: - do remember to install in a folder something like C:\Airnav and not in the default directory.

Good luck

To be fair, it's performed pretty well for the past few years on my d: drive.
I'll give the c: Airnav route a go.

Many Thanks for your assistance (and Patience !)

Make sure you are running RadarBox as admin as well otherwise it might not save down all the registry settings.

I've decided to do a completely clean install when I get a bit of time, and I've taken on board your comments.

Many Thanks

Clean install carried out, 64 bit Drivers installed, right Clicked on the .exe file, 'Run as Administrator'....
Validating....optimising....starting...up pops a screen asking for my user name and password.
Enter my forum name & Forum password - "Email and Password do not match"
Enter my email address and Forum password - Email and Password do not match"
Enter my email address and Box Serial Number - Email and Password do not match"
....the application then closed down as I'd had 3 goes.

WHICH User name and Password Comination do I use ?

I'm rapidly getting to the point where I'm watching FR24 and PlaneFinder riunning sweetly on both iPad and Laptop, and I'm wondering if all this is really worth the effort.

One last time then - any bright ideas anyone ?

Right click  on ANRB icon and Run as Administrator. Start in Demo Mode and enter your details then restart and should then work. You need your box s/n

Just for the record mine runs fine on d drive

Hi Alan,

Do you mean the 'PGANRB######' Reference ?

If so, I've tried that, with no joy.

Thanks anyway

Dave
