Thank you for taking the time to answer me. The problem sure seems to be the same as described in issue#128, after going through the emails.
I have no means other than use the program and give the results.
This is the bat file that is run before opening Gpredict:
cd \Program Files (x86)\hamlib-w64-3.2\bin
cmd /k “rotctld -m 202 -r COM11 -s 9600 -T 127.0.0.1 -t 4533 -C timeout=500 -C retry=0 -vvvvvvvv”
Ver. 1.4 works perfect with tracking and manual control of the rotor.
Gpredict log file 1 entry with manual control only with engage button, 2nd tracking and 3rd tracking also:
2018/09/13 09:17:03|3|sat_log_init: Session started
2018/09/13 09:17:03|4|sat_cfg_load: Everything OK.
2018/09/13 09:52:01|3|sat_log_init: Session started
2018/09/13 09:52:01|4|sat_cfg_load: Everything OK.
2018/09/13 11:24:24|3|sat_log_init: Session started
2018/09/13 11:24:24|4|sat_cfg_load: Everything OK.
Sequence to use Gpredict:
Run above BAT file.
Press->Engage(no tracking) Target
In the Rotor Control window The feedback readings for Azimuth & Elevation are correct
At this point the program freezes up. If I tap the upper right hand close X in the
Rotator Control window, a few times the Rotator Control window will close.
Gpredict main program is still frozen up, press the upper right hand corner close X (then (Not Responding) shows up. Continue to press the X and the Widows dialogue comes up with the “restore” “close” “Wait” selections. I can keep pressing the Red X or use Windows “Close” option and Gpredict closes.
As soon as Gpredict closes, the settings that were entered into the Rotator Control window either by “tracking” or by just engaging the settings without “tracking” and pressing “Engage”, at this point the rotator moves to the correct azimuth and elevation positions. This happens every time, without exception.
I wish I had the tools to update with the code from the issue#128, but sadly I do not.
Any chance of getting hold a a beta? Know you are busy with real life, and just a question about a beta.
Again thanks for your time and answer.
Hopefully this information helps.
