Tell us please, is it cured the problem?
Thanks Bob,W9RAN wrote:Hi,
I'm interested in trying it but having trouble with the installation. Installation fails due to not having Microsoft SQL Express installed so I tried doing that first on an old XP machine, which it said was not a supported OS. Assuming this was due to EOL support issues, I switched to a new i7 machine running Win 8.1 and a few hundred megabytes of Microsoft downloads and default answers later, I managed to install SQL Express. But the MNMSDR installation still fails with the same complaint, e.g. "Microsoft SQL Express LocalDB requried to proceed with installation!".
It would be helpful if you could provide more information about the versions of Windows supported and the SQL-related dependencies, since as you probably know there are approx. one gazillion variations and installation options to choose from.
Can you provide more details on the SQL database version used and any Windows version restrictions?
You also mentioned that VLC is required on the Pi, and I was hoping to find a readme file that described exactly what the installation procedure on the Pi is, and how rtl_fm should be configured to operate remotely. Any additional info along these lines would be helpful, I think.
Thanks and 73,
That was exactly the right suggestion! I wiped everything clean and followed those steps and now have things running well. The only remaining issue is I don't have audio, even though the stream is connecting and the spectrum analyzer function works. So I'll dig into that now that I've overcome all the installation issues.
I really appreciate your patience!
