    Has anyone encountered this error with the latest WSJX version? I'm unable to locate any file with a name containing fort.81.

    The message contains the following:

    Running: /Applications/wsjtx 2.0 -s WSJT-X -w 1 -m 1 -e "/Applications/wsjtx 2.0" -a "/Users/HarryHart/Library/Application Support/WSJT-X" -t /var/folders/ll/2v71cps55p3dsrgd_spr45yh0000gp/T/WSJT-X

    At line 145 of file /Users/bill/wsjtx-prefix/src/lib/ft8_decode.f90 (unit = 81)

    Fortran runtime error: Cannot open file 'fort.81': Permission denied
    My environment is High Sierra on a late-2009 iMac.

    It's a known bug in rc3. The solution, given by G4KLA on the wsjt-devel list:
    The “Subprocess Error” is due to a bug in rc3 and only affects FT8 operation.

    The fix is simple.

    1. Open a Terminal window (Applications > Utilities > Terminal) and type:
    and wsjtx will launch and behave correctly.
    2. If this does not work on Mojave:
    Download WSJT-X again and drag the WSJT-X app to your Desktop
    Open a Terminal window (Applications > Utilities > Terminal) and type:
    and wsjtx will launch and behave correctly.
    I use solution number in High Sierra on my MacBook Pro. It works like a charm and enables rc3 to run successfully.

    Hope this helps.

    My previous message should have said "solution number 2"

    RC4 crashes always when trying to save a contest QSO, even when started via the terminal. I have had the idea to support the upcoming FT8 Roundup in RUMlog.

    You must not let any exception whatsoever propagate through Qt code.
    If that is not possible, in Qt 5 you must at least reimplement
    QCoreApplication::notify() and catch all exceptions there.

    Apologies if this has been covered previously, but:

    I keep getting runtime errors in the WSPR v2.12 Windows version - like once every 1 or 2 days. I'm running minimal programs on a Win10 laptop so I don't believe it's resources.

    Does anyone know of a solution for this, or if v2.0 is any more stable? Thanks!

    Jim, WQ2H
