    Wow. I was expecting something like "error opening xport com port" but nothing? This may take more time, but try downloading it again. I just added code to reopen everything about 5 seconds after it starts. It should work just like opening and closing the config dialog only you won't see anything.

    Wow, thats a definate change, at least i know im getting from the right place, but the bad news is its now its totally broken

    1) On reboot, the com64 light now blinks rather than stay off.
    2) On cfg open/close it doesnt make the light go solid, it continues to blink.
    3) It doesnt pass anything through at all, completely broken.
    4) No errors, no popups, no dialogues. compass still reports altitude data.

    Oh - if i close compass and start it again, then do the open/close, the light stays solid but its still not passing anything through.

    I reverted back to yesterdays update and alls back to open/close and working so its nothing thats happened this end.

    Oh, that's not what I wanted to do at all. It was reopening at about 10Hz. Sorry. Try it one more time.

    Your a star!! now fixed- been giving it a good going over, restarts, cold boots, hibernate and suspend all work. Excellent stuff. Thank you for sorting that out


    Now i have used it so much ive noticed it doesnt come on very early in the boot sequence, if I put an application that needs a port in the startup folder, it errors out needing a manual start when all the tray programs are fully initialised - even xport goes funny and loads without the service ticked, but everything is rectified once the desktop is up for 5 seconds or so... on un-hibernate there is no issues at all, instantly all works again.

    Also another niggle while im here, if I right click the compass icon the menu appears- but if I dont choose anything, it wont close by clicking on the desktop- just stays open till somethings picked, or, i click on the compass wheel itself. Even right clicking the tray icon again doesnt close it.

    Neither of these issues are show stoppers - just minor things I thought id mention, obviously ive noticed more than I would if Id just used it with the amount ive been testing, there are a couple of even less important things but I wont mention them incase you shout at me.

    Im just very pleased that the main problem is fixed- that little X in the corner of the cfg page was a real hassle to get at on the touchscreen, thank you again for fixing it.

    Ah, that makes more sense now. For some reason it's not the same on all systems though, or maybe it was just half way loaded at that point. I bumped it up to an earlier boot start so that should fix it. I uploaded a new XPort and Compass so get both. The compass has a large OK button on the config and I removed the new delayed reopen code. On XPort, just uncheck and check it and it should have the new startup settings.

    awwh, its broken again - needs the open-close on a reboot, ive copied the manifests over with the exes.

    i see the new box on xport, doesnt seem to do anything though, still relies on compass.

    lol. Well, I don't know. I can change it from system start to boot start, which has to be before anything else. I just uploaded that change (in XPort). The manifests just make the buttons look better and the new "Reset Arbiter" button is just some code that fixes all those (in use) ports that really aren't when you use bluetooth devices. Just ignore it.

    well i pressed it a few times and realised it didnt do anything but could see it was cycling thru the ports

    Im not sure if you changed anything today but the current version of compass still needs an open/close to work on boot... have gone back to the working version, which seems to work fine with the updated xport too.

    Well, I uploaded a new one about 4 hours ago. It has a 5 second delay. Not sure what else I can do with it at this point. Something in XPort is getting blocked but I think it may be beyond my control. At least for now.
