 WIN95/NT - Login Problems   

 

Question:  I can't get past the LOGIN screen.

 

Answer 1. You have installed the MRX Morse Code executable only, you must install the MRXV1INST.EXE program. If you did not see a setup program when you ran the file you downloaded then you have installed the wrong version...  Please return to the download page and try again.

Answer 2:  So you’ve installed MRX onto your PC and fired it up, but what is the Login Box for?  MRX comes from a classroom training background and supports multiple users on the same PC by default. This is handy for classroom training and for those households where more than one person intends to practice morse code, because results and screen preferences can be customised to each user.

 You can remove the need to Login to MRX by starting the program with the user switch:

 MRX u:NAME

     a         b

Where: 

a  is the name of the executable program.

b  is the switch to indicate the name of the user.

 

Example:

 If your name was SAMMY and you wanted to start MRX without seeing the Login prompt, and MRX directory was located in C:\MRX, then you would enter the following in the Target line of your MRX program shortcut:

C:\MRX\MRX.EXE u:SAMMY

 Note:  Case is not important.

 

The Windows 95/NT program shortcut properties can be edited to contain this string. But if you don’t mind typing in your name, or if you need the multiple user support, then type in an identifying name into the Login Box. You will need to use this same name each time you use MRX.

 Note: The first time you Login to MRX, the program will not be able to find your files and will ask if files should be created, answer yes.

 Morse Library Not Found

 

Question:  I can start MRX Morse code ok, but get "Morse Library" not found when I try to select any of the morse sounding functions.

 

Answer:   You are missing the "MORSE.LIB" file. It should reside in your MRX Morse Code program directory. If you are missing this file please email: jwsamin@mrx.com.au and provide the error details. A new file will be sent to you.

 No Morse Code Licenses Available

 

Question:  Sometimes when I start (or restart) MRX Morse Code I get an error "No Morse Code Licenses Available" and can not run the program.

 

Answer:  Most MRX Morse Code users only have one program license available for use. The license file is checked at program start and if the number of licenses in use is less than the number authorised, MRX Morse Code will run. When you exit MRX Morse Code the program will modify the license to indicate there are no users (or one less user) and free the license. But, if the program is terminated (computer turned off etc...) or an error occurs then the license count will not be decreased, so MRX Morse Code will report that the license is in use. Always close MRX Morse Code before turning off the computer.

Unused licenses will expire in around an hour, but if you don't want to wait that long, delete the NAME.LIC (where NAME is your login name) file, from the USERS directory, located within your MRX Morse Code program directory.

Warning: MRX Morse Code will terminate if you delete the NAME.LIC file, while the program is in use.
