You wonder why RT Systems keeps selling defective software if it doesn't work right? They should either fix it or refund everyone's money. No software is perfect but it seems everyone is experiencing instability and loss of settings and data. There's no excuse for that, it's obviously an unfinished product.I stopped using it after it blew away the settings on the radio - I didn't feel it was worth the risk. I think its one main feature is that it is good for bulk edits. Other than that I find it inexplicably slow and unstable.
The Icom software seems expensive for what it does, but it does it fast, and without surprises.
Do as it says, Close the main program only But leave just the Upgrade message box open, the one with the message about closing everything.The problem I'm currently having with RT's software is that whenever I try to update any one of their programs it tells me to close them all first which I know I've done. Currently I can't perform any updates at all.
I also had problems with the RT software for my IC-R8600 which I bought soon after my IC-R8600 arrived. Most of the memory banks of the IC-R8600 were not accessible using the software. I wish I'd purchased the Icom software instead despite it being much more expensive.
Hey thanks, your suggestion worked...all updated now!Do as it says, Close the main program only But leave just the Upgrade message box open, the one with the message about closing everything.
Once you close the main program, click OK on the updater message to close that message box and then click the Update button again in the updater program window and the updates will be downloaded and installed.
You can also run the updater program from the programs install folder without starting the main program at all. This will update all without the warning box. The standalone updater is called RTUpdater_V5.exe
Unless you changed the install location when you installed RT's software, the updater is normally located at C:\RT Systems V5\Icom\<your radio model> and not under any of the normal folders like the Program Files folders.
If you still get a warning about closing the program first, you have something running in the background. You should be able to use Task Manager to see and close whatever's still running.
