I've been using Altair for ages without problem within an XP VM (VM Workstation 14) on my Win10 laptop.

Now, for some reason, I can't access either of two 5800s so that I can update the transmitter MUX lineup in FvTxData.tsv (missing two MUXs since the 5 Feb changes).

Both 5800s are running MyStuff (with recommended 13.65 firmware) and are aXel'ised - I'm sure I've used Altair and updated files since they had aXel added.

Is there something (simple) I've missed or has there been an upgrade somewhere along the line (i.e. something from MS?) that is causing this lack of file access to the Toppy?

I've tried stopping MyStuff and rebooting without it running. And now I've run out of ideas!

Or - Is there a Win10 64-bit program for an Altair replacement that could be tried?

Thanks for reading.
Dave

Antares is the replacement for altair, there are plenty of references to it.

eg https://forum.toppy.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=17286

Note that the topic is now 10 years old!!

I know - but the Toppy was a brilliant piece of kit and, in my mind, better than the Humax 5000 machine I also run and, therefore, it still is a brilliant piece of kit.

Such a shame all support for it has now gone in other directions - but, I guess that progress for you.

Anyway, thanks for the Antares hint - I shall take a look at that.
