Did you try my suggestion of creating a shortcut to the ADI file and putting 
that shortcut in your SAVE directory?

John,

 

I’m running Windows 10 Home and it looks like Home doesn’t let you execute the 
mklink command?

You can also navigate to the WSJT-X adi file, create a shortcut and then move 
that shortcut to your DX4Win SAVE folder.

From his email:

I got tired of navigating to the WSJT-X directory every time I wanted to import 
my WSJT-X log into DX4WIN.  Fortunately, Windows 10 has a solution.  The idea 
is to create a symbolic link in your SAVE directory that points to the WSJT-X 
log directory.  The full instructions for creating symbolic links are here:

 

    https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/16226/complete-guide-to-

symbolic-links-symlinks-on-windows-or-linux/

 

Here's the quick start:

 

1.  Start by opening a Command Prompt in Administrator mode.  From the Start 
menu, find "Windows System" and right-click on "Command Prompt'.

Follow the "More" link and then click "Run as Administrator".

 

2.  Determine the location of your WSJT-X log directory.  Here is one way:

 

    cd %localappdata%

    C:

    dir

 

    You should see a WSJT-X directory there.  The full path should look 
something like this:

 

    C:\Users\jjrei\AppData\Local\WSJT-X

 

3.  Now determine the location of your DX4WIN SAVE directory.  Mine is here:

 

    E:\dx4w903\save

 

4.  "cd" into your DX4WIN save directory:

 

    cd E:\dx4w903\save

    E:

 

5.  Finally, create the link.  Here is the command I used:

 

    E:\dx4w903\save> mklink /D WSJT-X C:\Users\jjrei\AppData\Local\WSJT-X

 

    (do not type the part *before* the >, only the part beginning with "mklink"

 

That's all there is to it.  The next time you want to import using "File | 
Import", you will see the WSJT-X link in your SAVE directory.

Double-click on that link, and you'll find your WSJT-X ADIF file there.

 

This is not limited to WSJT-X, you can create links to anything you want.
