Summary0003366: QLM client doesn't prompt user to update their Callsign in License Manager when they have had a staff member change their call
DescriptionBefore I write this up and have it go through the scrutiny of others, I wanted to raise this to your attention. Here's what I'm seeing...

Customer gets a key... installs it using their Callsign (Company) and activation key. Perfect. Everything works fine.


Many of these customers change their Callsigns. It's a vanity thing.

When they do, they make the request to a staff member who will go into that customer's record and replace the old call with the new one. So say I'm WA9PIE... and I have my callsign changed to W9EIE. I've tested making this change in QLM.

However... the software continues to run as registered to WA9PIE.

What I was expecting to happen is that the customer would be prompted - the next time the software launches - that their callsign no longer matches and asks them to enter their new callsign. They enter their new callsign... the software calls QLM with the new callsign and existing key... gets a match... program starts. No match, some message back saying they have not entered it correctly... try again or contact HRD Software customer service.

Make sense?

I am not sure if this is how it should be but …
First time I ran v.234 GB2GM appeared as the callsign and the previous activation key was entered with asterisks.
I was unable to delete the activation key.
I closed this dialog box and reran HRD and then got an empty Callsign box.
My activation required me to use GB2GM which is what I used for the previous tests.
Can you now change it to G3UCQ please?
As mentioned before. It was difficult to figure out what some characters are i.e I and 1.
Only by copying the key and pasting the key into Notepad could I see the difference between 1 and I and 0 and O.

I deactivated the Licence Key in the Licence Manager. All boxes were then emptied and HRD closed.
I reloaded HRD and everything ran as normal.

John... that should not happen. The 6.6 version should not be pulling forward any old key information.

That is what happened Mike

What happened for John was related to having a previous 6.6 beta build with a call and key that were purged from the system between beta sets. I misunderstood it.

Once John's call and key were updated, all is well.
