New user with VarAC v5.3.1 and VARA HF v4.6.3. Windows 7 Pro 64 workstation, IC-7300 (CAT control).
App works great - but loads in a wierd fashion. The VARA HF modem window comes up, then disappears, then comes up again, then disappears, then comes up a third time and the VarAC windows opens.
Everything works well from that point on.
VARA.exe is in the C:\VARA folder, and VarAC is in the C:\VarAC folder.
I use VARA HF regularly with Winlink and have done so since VARA Day 1 with great success. VarAC has not been in my wheelhouse until now. I did use Vara Chat for a bit, but abandoned it in favor of JS8Call ... way - back - when.
The parameter should be there already. simply change its value
This usually happens when you have limited resources on your where it takes too much time for the modem to start. So Varac try to restart it.
Default wait time is 5 seconds.
You can increase the time in which VarAC waits for VARA HF to start (to 10 seconds for example) . Open the varac.ini file and palce this parameter under the "VARAHF_CONFIG" section.
VarahfLaunchDelaySeconds = 10
