      Wow, that worked!  Thanks Dan.  So the trick is to ignore the README file, and install as per below.  I now am able to select the Sound Card that I use, and run PSK2K.  I ran the MCR Test using the internal sound card and mic, then after the test competed, I disabled the internal card and was able to select the external sound card, and run PSK2K with no problem.  Thanks again, Dan.

      I’d be glad to help.  Installing PSK2K is a little tricky.  You probably do not have things in the correct folder.


      1)      Unzip and install the MATLAB runtime first.

      2)      Unzip the MCR_Test and run it.  It will not finish, but this builds some folders for you.

      3)      Go to your Windows explorer, and look at MyDocuments.  You should see a MATLAB folder.  Under this MATLAB folder you should see two sub folders.  MCR_Test and PSK2K.  If you do not see them, create them.  (make sure they are directly under the MyDocuments/MATLAB/ folder.

      4)      Move the MCR_test files to the MYDocument/MATLAB/MCR_Test folder and run the MCR_Test program from there.  If it runs to completion, you are good to go. 

      5)      Unzip and move all of the files in the PSK2K download to the MyDocuments/MATLAB/PSK2K folder.   Then create a short cut to run the PSK2K program from this location.


      A number of PSK2K folks hang out on my chat room  http://chat.n5tm.com and will be glad to help you with any issues.

      Hello All,


      I am seeking anyone that can help me get PSK2K installed on my Computers.  When installing, I get a DOS window that comes up for a minute or so, then disappears before I can read what the screen shows, and does not finish installing.  However, I find that there is a text document in a MATLAB folder in my C:\Documents folder with the following errors.  I have done everything I know how to do to get this program installed with no results.  This error happens whether I run the MCR Test or not.  Any ideas?  I appreciate any help.

      p.s.  One Computer is a Toshiba with 1.6 G dual core processor with 2 GB ram running Windows Vista home edition sp2


      One computer is a Dell netbook running a 1.6 Atom processor with 1 GB Ram running Windows XP sp3


      For Sound Cards, I currently use two SignaLink USB external sound cards for WSJT, one for 6M, and one for 2M.  For the MCR Test, I used the internal sound card, because the audio out has to be looped back to the audio input during the test.  The internal sound card is a Realtek High Definition card with a sample rate of 48 KHz on both computers.
