Error when downloading from LoTW while communicator running

Post by VE6EFR » 03 Sep 2017, 17:45

I was having an issue with my log disappearing after downloading from LoTW. I could upload without a problem, but any time I would download confirmations into Log4OM my log would be gone. It would show 0 records found and the only way I could get them back was to restore from a backup. While this worked, it would never allow me to update the LoTW Received Date column.

I believe the issue was caused by having communicator running and talking with JTAlert and WSJT-X. As long as communicator isn't running, I can download the confirmations without a problem and everything works as it should. But once communicator is running again, if I try to download from LoTW without making sure communicator is closed first the error returns and my log once again shows 0 records found and I have to restore from a backup.

If JTAlert was running then it will be accessing your database and this could cause the issue

I have the communicator running all the time and my LOTW downloads are faultless and touch wood I have never lost a database
