"Trusted QSL" version 1.14 is available for beta testing
- Over the past 4 months, Rick K1MU, Robert KC2YWE, and I have rebooted the Trusted QSL project from which the TQSL and TQSLCert
applications and the TrustedQSL library are built. After considering input from ARRL Management, from the ARRLs LotW Support Group,
and from this ARRL-LotW Yahoo Group, we established a set of priorities that would be addressed by a sequence of incremental
releases. The first release in this sequence is version 1.14, in which
1. Log files can be signed and uploaded over the internet to LotW in one operation.
2. Errors in Station Locations are reported (e.g. incorrect CQ and ITU zones).
3. QSOs that need not be re-submitted (duplicates) are brought to the users attention.
4. Error reporting has been improved.
5. Installation on Windows has been improved.
6. Users are notified when a new version becomes available.
7. Documentation has been improved.
A small group of testers began exercising version 1.14 on March 10th; this testing exposed several defects, all of which have been
corrected. We are now ready to begin the next stage of testing: every member of this Yahoo Group is invited to download version
1.14, install it, and give it a try. Questions, defect reports, and suggestions should be posted here.
The current release candidate v1.14-rc5 is available via
You can review the documentation for v1.14-rc5 before you download and install it:

Oh boy, this is getting to be even more fun. Went to Unistall and got this error message. "C:\Program Files\TrustedQSL\unins000.dat does not exist. Cannot uninstall."
So really briefly, the problem is that when you did a "last known good" setting, it restored a registry backup. But that doesn't touch the files, so I think the files and the registry information pointing to them is just out of agreement.
As a simple fix, go into C:\Program Files\TrustedQSL and delete everything in there. It's OK - your certificates and locations are stored somewhere else (we won't touch that). Then the 1.14 installer should run fine. The problem is that it's trying to run the uninstaller for 1.13, but it's failing (as you see when you do it manually) and so the installer gives up. If you delete all the files, it won't think it's installed and it should install normally. Afterwards, you should be able to uninstall and install it normally.
