Not new version number system.

* Fixed installation scripts to ensure updated .dll files are used.

This has a small enhancement to the status screen, in which it now shows if you're running the latest firmware/software. Not a required update, as there is no new functionality, except that you can now see if you have the latest firmware/software on the front screen when connected.

It's also a version incriment to allow testing of the software version test.

Version 2.2

This version has a Live update screen on the front screen now.

No other fixes or updates.

Verison 2.4

This has a performance improvement.
Behind the scenes, I have worked on the multi threading of the application,w hich should fix any performance issues.

A beta 'Live Display' has been added (Under the File menu).

Version 2.5

Version 2.5 is available now.

Has a very Beta 'Live Data' view screen (Under the File menu). Will show live data from the plane, if you have a modem. Or if it's connected via the usual wire.

Also, added a small fun update. See if you can find it. :)

Version 2.6

PC Commander Version 2.6 is now available.

This has had a major back end change, with version management and downloads.

I also added a new icon. :)

Awesome. Posted on Christmas no less. You shouldn't work so hard. :)

Got a question... When I check for new updates, it gives me the following error:

"An error has occured while performing the Software Version Request. Please try again later."

I click OK, then try again, and sometimes it works after that, but other times it gives the same error again. Any idea what's going on?

Hey Brian!

That's strange - could you email me the debug file? (Click Help and About, I think, and it will show you the path...)

Send it to and I'll check it out.


Edit: I have made a change to the way I connect to the database... and it seems pretty good now. Could you confirm the issue is resolved?

Hey Craig. Well, it seems ok now. Can't duplicate the problem. It was doing it yesterday though, even with the new software version (2.6). Did you make a change since then to your server? Could be that fixed it. Also, since it appears the log file is rewritten everytime the program runs, I don't have any useful information from that. Here's what it says, but this is after a successful update check:

This is running on Win XP Pro, SP3.

BTW, something else I noticed. When starting PC Commander, the splash screen shows until you move the mouse. IE: it won't go away until the mouse is moved over top of the window. Is this intentional? Just curious.

Nope - splash haning about isn't intentional... Will look into that. :?

And yeah, I made a change on the server side, so hopefully that issue is now resolved.

As for the deleted log file, there's an option in the options menu: Top menu, Configuration, Application Settings... there's a check box 'Clear log on Startup'. Ity's defaulted to On, because that log file will be huge after a while...

Glad it seems better!
