VB6 replacement search , TQSL small problem..

Perfectly describes the let down of VB6 users by Microsoft.

http://lightquick.co.uk/still-looking-for-a-replacement-for-vb6.html?Itemid=252

i have installed MS Visual studio 2015   i had to let my PC running the whole evening to install this dragon piece ...

bulky slow cryptic not suited
Windows 10 still not been able to run in VM






seems to be very hard..
TQSL v2.0.3
I noticed  a possible problem in TQSL   v2.0.3

when editing an existing ADIF
the output is skipping fields

output of N1MM ADIF   1 record

 EA8AA/QRP 20150412 172233 36 20M PA0O 14.05356 DX 14.05356 CW 599 599 PA0O 33 8373 1 1 AF 1 1 True USER-PC 1


same record ADIF after edit   inTQSL

EA8AA/QRP
   20M
   CW
   20150412
   172233
   14.05356
   14.05356

 I noticed this because I could not import the edited ADIF into HAMlog due to too many missing fields

did send my findings to LOTW  / tqsl   
got real quick reply from Katherine Lotw specialist

LOTW does only need  callsign  date time band mode and optional frequency
 therefore TQSL only exports these fields needed for LOTW

50MHz  3 days 3B9RF reported into Europe including SM6 LA EI north but for one or another reason i can not be present at the right time ....
frustrating to learn I am not a DX-r anymore .
A DX -r  just know when to be QRV  i know  it is dinnertime .. today I had! to have dinner somewhere outside..  I left with white noise  and returned  to find white noise
But in between 3B9RF was worked again PA LA  etc..
aaarggg I just can't be there when he is reported in EU
