acarsdeco2 will not run
« on: March 13, 2016, 02:38:27 PM »
I have a strange problem here.
I can run aisdeco2, no problem there.
But acarsdeco2 and adsbdeco2 will not run, I got the error 0x000007b.

Installed are C++ 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2015.

Does anyone now what is going wrong here?

To avoid making a new thread, I'd like to add that, mine doesn't run at all.

I downloaded the latest version, clicked on the .exe file, a terminal (?) window pops up and briefly flashes some blazingly fast scrolling text and then closes.

Nothing else happens.

What else should I have done, to get the program to work?

acarsdeco2 is a command line program so the easiest way to execute it is to create a batch file. A sample batch file is included in the downloaded zip file; ad2.bat. Copy ad2.bat to startacarsdeco2.bat and then modify it (using Notepad) for you particular requirements.

For a basic setup my bat file contains

Code: [Select]
@echo off
cmd /c acarsdeco2.exe --gain 38.6 --freq-correction -1 --freq 131525000 --freq 131725000 --freq 131825000 --logfile C:\Users\<insert your directory structure>\logs

You will require the --freq-correction value of your RTL, (mine is -1), and you'll need your local acars frequencies.
Double-click on the batch file should start acarsdeco2. A command window will display the incoming acars messages, and they will also be written to the log file.

Thanks Stuart.

Looks like it didn't work for gcopter?  Or he didn't try your suggestion?
