Log4OM freezes when switching from one digimode program to another

Post by kd7mw »

I use WSJT-x, JTDX and FlDigi. I run the appropriate version of JTAlert with WSJT-x and JTDX. I have a single configuration of Log4OM that is configured to connect to each program as shown in the manual. All programs are "Run as Administrator." All three programs digital mode programs work.

The problem comes when I try to switch between any two of the digi-mode programs. If I close everything, including Log4OM, everything works fine. But if I leave Log4OM running and only close the first digi-mode program (and its companion version of JTAlert), Log4OM will often freeze when I start the second digi-mode program. Then I have to close Log4OM with Task Manager and start over.

So, for example, say I'm on FT8, but I hear an Olivia signal (yes, that still happens occasionally!). If I'm lucky, Log4OM stays up and I can switch to FlDigi in a few seconds. But if Log4OM freezes, it takes a long time to get everything going again, and by then, the desired signal is usually gone.

Any idea why this is happening and what I can do about it?
