19984Re: [perseus_SDR] Cannot run Perseus v4.0c anymore - "Expired"
- Feb 1, 2013Sadly, I still don't know what the problem was but I got Perseus working again. I merely did a System Restore.
I wonder if recent installation of other SDR software had something to do with this - namely SDR# and SDR-Radio Console? Off that they all worked happily together for a few days though, so I am baffled. It seems Windows 7 became confused in some way.
Thankfully, everything seems to be back in order again.

No problems Bill.
Something appears to have told Windows 7 (should have mentioned the version earlier) that Perseus itself has expired, yet that trial period message is for something else, downconverter freq or something. It shouldn't stop Perseus itself from running. It looks like Windows 7 has become confused, something which isn't difficult I am finding lately.

Sorry, I didn’t read the earlier post…too early in the morning…
If it hasn’t already been tried…
1. Rename or Delete your existing Perseus directory.
2. Delete the Microtelecom registry (ask if you don’t know how this is done or search this Yahoo group) ---> HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microtelecom s.r.l.\perseus\v4.0c
3. Download or unzip the Perseus software again into the same or a new directory.
It is also worth looking in Device Manager to be sure the SDR is being recognized (it shouldn’t have a yellow ? next to it).
If it's any help:
When running Mestor, the message "PERSEUSUSB.DLL MISSING" appears. perseususb.dll is definitely present, plus the driver, etc. appears to have installed correctly, according to on-screen messages.

It's exactly the same Werner.
Unfortunately, the problem is much deeper than that.

if you reboot and have the Perseus attached, what message do you get ?
2013/2/1 John Faulkner - Skegness <john.faulkner@...>
Yesterday when I ran Perseus SDR (v4.0c) I had a message telling me my trial period had expired. I realise this is for the FM+ trial but I don't have FM+. I would be well beyond the trial period anyway, but something has triggered this message again and I cannot run Perseus anymore.
I had cancelled the trial period message several months ago. When I cancel it now nothing happens - still no Perseus.
I uninstalled the Perseus drivers within Device Manager and deleted the Perseus directory so I could start again from scratch. I made sure the "Microtelecom Devices" entry had disappeared from the Device Manager and I removed the "Microtelecom s.r.l." entry in HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software. I began again from scratch but the same message appeared.
Now I cannot use Perseus. Please can somebody help?
