[amsat-bb] Wisp & Settings

I am trying to set the Wisp on Windows 10 but having problems to get the settings
permanent. If I go into Tracking and select the satellites I want to have under eyes,
when I close the GSC and shut down the PC on the next.

Start-up of the PC and the Wisp program, I get the lower part of the GSC program.

Empty. I have to go again in the tracking tab and select again the satellites but
at the next shut down and restart I am again at the beginning point.
What to do to get them permanent?

I have the same problem. It is registry related since there is multiple locations in
the Windows 10 registry it tries to store the data. I find that if I enter just one
satellite (I usually use AO-07), then exit and restart GSC, all of the satellites
are back (until maybe the next reboot). If there is a software update to Windows 10
it almost always needs to be done again as I did above.

I don't think WISP32 is supported any longer so not sure this problem will get fixed.

Hello Enzo, I am only guessing but do have Gsc.exe running as administrator?
I used "right click" and made all .exe files in the Wisp directory to run as
administrator always. Please do that first and try again.

Makes no difference. That was the first thing I tried.
Then I started investigating the multiple locations that some of the Wisp data
was located in the registry. I found that I also had to add my station info back
in and then I would get the satellite tracking data in the lower part. Just got use
to having to make the previously mentioned inserts and then everything worked again.
