Stand by COM popup windows don't appears

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello Dave  🙂
I changed my computer (more powerful + Windows 10 Professional) and I reinstalled the latest full version of Pilot2ATC (v2.6.1.2).
Everything works fine except the popup window for the stand by frequency (COM 1 or COM 2): this popup window doesn't appear if I click on the STBY COM frequency.
In the Windows 10 taskbar, I can see that there is a window associated with Pilot2ATC (so the STBY COM popup window), but this thumbnail shows that there is no text or value in this thumbnail window (see attached screenshots). I can close this ghost popup window only from the Windows taskbar.

Usually I don't use this popup window to change COM frequencies (I do it in X-Plane), but I have an occasional need for this popup window: it's the only location where I can adjust the sound chatter volume (files from X-ATC Chatter). Currently this chatter volume is much too low compared to the ATC volume.

=> As the volume chatter is saved somewhere, could you please tell me in which file this value is saved, in which variable in this file and what are the limits I can write manually in this file... if of course this file is editable with a text editor.

For STBY COM frequency, the popup windows don't appears:

For the STBY NAV frequency popup window, it's OK:

This is a common Windows problem, especially on systems with multiple screens.

To fix do the following:

1)    After pressing the Stby Com Freq, Hover over the P2A icon on the Taskbar. There should be multiple windows and one is the Radio Freq window
2)    Hover over that window and a larger thumbnail of the window should show
3)    Right-click that larger thumbnail
4)    Select Move
5)    Hold down the Right Arrow key on the keyboard until the program comes into view
6)    If that doesn’t work, hold down the left arrow
7)    Once the window is in view, use the mouse to move it to the desired location.
😎  Shut down Pilot2ATC so the location will be remembered.
