    I have been loving this software for long time. I just have two little requests. I really wish you guys can look into it.
    In the rta section.
    1, include increased fft length for option this will help the noise floor.
    2, include max overlap of 0% for option as this will as well help with the boise floor.
    Thank you so much for developing such wonderful software.

    Longer FFTs can be added, how long were you looking for? Don't see how the overlap affects the noise floor.

    Thanks for the fast reply!
    About the fft length, maybe a few times longer, perhaps 1M.
    About the overlap, as I increase the percentage of overlap, the noise floor on the graph apears higher, so I think changing to a lower value can give a lower noise floor.

    Overlap shouldn't affect the noise floor. What kind of signals are you measuring and with what window and averaging? If there was no overlap sections of the data in the tapered region of the window would only make a partial contribution to the result.

    Ok. I just tested with different averaging option. The higher noise floor is caused by the fixed averages which was 32 when I tested before. My bad.
    I use hanning window all the time with 32 averages.
    And I mainly test pure sine waves for my amplifier.

    this software is not user-friendly, at all... i installed a no-java(?) version of it last night, and when i ran it today, it automatically opened up the rew help file... i've never seen software that opened up the help file by itself, without being told, and i spent a number of years as a network admin.

    the problem with that approach is that with an hdmi receiver plugged into the computer, win10 thinks that the receiver is a second monitor, and the help file is opened up in that non-existent monitor, that can't be viewed, when there is only one actual monitor in the system... it wouldn't be a big issue, except for some weird reason the help file window can't be selected with a right-click, to drag over the actual default monitor, which i've never seen before, again.

    so i unplugged the receiver, rebooted with no audio system, then tried to install the update, but i'm again faced with multiple software choices, because the installed software isn't capable of choosing the same version that is already installed... why can't the software just point to the version that's needed?

    so i tried to install something, and i'm getting a "bundled jre is corrupted" error message, for i4j_nlog_5.log... how could a simple log file get corrupted?

    i guess that i'll try to run the old version.

    The "Bundled JRE is corrupted" message when trying to download a JRE on a system that doesn't have one looks to be an installer problem, I've logged a support ticket for that. It fails to properly download the JRE bundle, hence the message. There are REW versions for download which include a JRE, or a JRE could be installed from java.com (https://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp for manual selection).

    Updating is by no means as slick as it might be, I agree, though making it more automated is slightly complicated by having the beta versions on the forum here. Improving that is on my todo list.

    I don't understand what you mean about selecting a window with a right click, sorry, and I have no idea why Win10 would want to open windows on another display device. I'm no network admin though.

    the corrupted log file message box was in front of the box that was talking about the java install, which i figured out by alt-tabbing between the two, which led me to manually install java, from the same link that you posted... i already had java 8 installed, so it was a version problem.

    i think that i opened up the help file myself, while trying to figure out which version of the software i had, sorry about that... i would suggest that since you have a 64-bit version labeled as 64-bit in the file name, the 32-bit version should be labeled the same manner, like this, in order to cut down the confusion for newbies:

    REW Windows 64-bit installer, requires 64-bit Java 8
    REW Windows 32-bit installer (requires Java 8)


    i have the receiver plugged into an hdmi video card port, on a desktop pc, so the receiver looks like another monitor to win10; it shows up as either an extended window or a duplicate window... if you plug a 2nd monitor into the hdmi output of the receiver, you'll see that 2nd window... it's a windows o.s. problem.

    thx for all of the effort that you've put into this software, it's pretty sophisticated.​

    I've changed that download title. The help file does open on first installation, partly to make sure folk realise there is help.

    The "Bundled JRE is corrupted" message when trying to download a JRE on a system that doesn't have one turned out to be my mis-configuration of the installer, it will work properly for the next beta.

    In the button "Check Levels" is not working in the "Make a measurement" dialog. But is working in the "Preference" dialog.

    Works OK for me, can you provide more details, maybe screenshots of the Measure dialog and the soundcard preferences?
