After installation go to your VisualRadio folder, subfolder 'VisualRadio Flash for AOR_...'
Right click on VRFlash....EXE and choose 'Properties'. On the 'Compatibility' tab check 'Run this program in compability mode for' and select 'Windows 8' from the combo.
If you don not own one of the newer AOR's you should put VR Flash into 'virtual mode':
To do this, right-click on the icon on the desktop and select 'Properties'. In the 'Target' field, go to the far right edge and insert a space and "-V". Click on 'OK'. Each time the icon is clicked, VR Flasch is now in 'virtual mode', i.e. started without a receiver. Rename the Icon to something having to do with 'Virtual'
Create a new Icon (Link) and edit its Target without a " -V" and name it what you like. This is VR Flash with a real radio connected.
Now start with a double click on the virtual icon and select 'Server'. The server should start and move to the screen settings of the last session. If first session it moves to the middle of the screen.
Now start the VR Terminal. With the server running click 'Connect' at the terminal, choose 'File -> Open' and select a file in the '.VRT'-Format. Currently there should be only one file, the 041420_171307_0091500000.VRT in your VR Terminal directory. You should delete all others.
Now click 'SIGNALS' on the terminal and data is now transferred to the server. Activate 'LOOP FILE' for continous transfer.
On the left side under 'Clients' you will find 10 LEDs which indicate the associated clients,
on the right side under 'TRIGGER POINTS' all those signals which are above the trigger threshold with indication of frequency and signal level.
Another evaluation option is available after activating 'HIST.' .. You will now see the frequency of signals on the associated frequency in the second column instead of the signal level.
All values like frequencies, modes, signal levels, but also complete distributions can be distributed over the network for further evaluation. In the latter case, the value in the 'SAMPLES' field determines the sample size. If 'SOLID' is deactivated, the histogram can be seen better. You could also command VRFlash to output data of trigger points by sending 'system slots?'
