No Entries in the menu visible (vrt-dvd 2011)

After installation the program starts but there is no menu visible and the type list empty. we would recommend to install the patch for vrt-dvd 2011. Otherwise you can try to set the language.

1. Start the programm and choose in the menu the first item and click on the second in the menu
2.Please verify if the correct language is selected Choose english for example
3.Click on “dialog font” the second button below the language selection Please verify if the test is visible see the red arrow

Normally we use the ECATech Font, but you choose an other too. Select a visible font After confirming the big button on the right side of the setting window, it should be ok.

Where are the replacement types?

Problem: In the old vrt-disk the replacement type will be viewed in the main list.
Solution: You can find the direct replacement types in the data sheet window.. We did change the data base structure and did added the new selection for parameters, here you can find several replacement types.

Only short data in the data sheet?

Problem: You search for a wellknown transistor and the data sheet shows only short data and you can't search for technical parameters
Solution: Sometimes, especially for old types, you will find many types two or more times in the type list. Once in a short data sheet, which we use for the ECA vrt books and a more detailed one with all parameters.
Example BC 237:
Here a screen shot of the list with BC237 VRT data sheet
Second BC237 in the list is for the TDV data sheet, which allows parametric search too.

Here the screen shot for the vrt data sheet for BC 237

and here the TDV data sheet for BC 237

The more detailed data sheet allows a parametric search, while the vrt data sheet will show direct replacement types.
