      So this doesn't work for any of the 491,185,348 and some odd QSO's already uploaded?  Or anyone not using V. 1.14 or higher?  Interesting or maybe disappointing?

       

      >>>There are 50 million duplicate QSOs being uploaded to LotW each week, most by operators who upload their entire logs to LotW each time they make a few new QSOs. As these operators upgrade to TQSL 1.14, that unnecessary load will be reduced. The “50 million duplicate QSOs per week” statistic comes from measurements by ARRL management.

       

      >>>Note that signing and uploading QSOs to LotW is significantly easier with TQSL 1.14, so there is incentive to upgrade. And TQSL 1.14 is significantly faster for operators who previously have been uploading their entire log each time.

      How is this taking place? If I upload a single duplicate QSO with AClog 3.3 I see no notice.’

      >>>TQSL 1.14 only considers a QSO a duplicate if

      1. That QSO was previously digitally signed by TQSL version 1.14 (or later)

      2. Since that QSO was last digitally signed,

      - neither its callsign, band, mode, satellite, or station callsign have changed

      - no component of the “Station Location” with which the QSO was digitally signed has changed

      >>>In your test, did you attempt to upload the QSO from TQSL 1.14 a second time?

      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 ARRL’s 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 user’s 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

      <http://www.arrl.org/trustedqsl-beta-release>

      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.
