W6ELProp tutorial - May 2016     If you need the W6ELProp executable file, send me an e-mail (k9la at arrl.net) and I will send it to you.

With respect to running W6ELProp, Bill W4ZV suggested that I put the following two paragraphs on my web site. The paragraphs come from the October 19, 2007 ARRL Propagation Bulletin by K7RA:

1. Last week’s Propagation Forecast Bulletin ARLP042 mentioned a problem a reader had running W6ELprop under Microsoft’s Vista operating system. There is an easy fix. Our reader’s problem was probably with a security feature in Vista, and the solution is to right-click the W6ELprop installation file above from Windows Explorer, then select the Run as Administrator option.

2. We also received a helpful tip from Rex Lint, K1HI. Vista isn’t compatible with the Help file in W6ELprop, which has an .hlp extension. To fix this, there is a free patch from Microsoft, described at support.microsoft.com/kb/917607.
