Default .cai files and windows 10

I just got a windows 10 machine and I am having difficulty converting my .cai files from my Cambridge flight recorder using the caiolc conversion. I can’t drag the file out of the Cambridge Aero Explorer into a folder that I can access with the caiolc converter. Never had this issue with windows 7.

Help!

I would be happy if all badge and records can be submitted with any Oudie file and I have as many days as I would like to submit it. That said can you help me.

I will check on what I have tonight, Dennis. I am currently zero for two on successful (green records) on OLC, but I think I know why on the two I have tried so far this year. I will be running a ground test soon to confirm.. But, I had the same initial issue in setting my machine up to handle log files.

I seem to recall getting some sort of message about I had t ask permission from the administrator of the computer. I think I have all the items in the "Downloads" folder that was created with the machine. I have a "CAI" folder there, that has Aero Explorer, and the conversion program in it. The conversion program now goes right to the folder of logs, and saves in the same place.

If you get a "blue V" instead of a "green V" on OLC, no harm done. You still get the "points". So e.g. a flight log from XCsoar, Tophat, IGCdroid, etc are all OK for that.

The time limit for submission to OLC is an OLC policy and it does not matter in that regard what type of file you submit.

Looks like drag/drop doesn't work, but right-click Copy and Paste does. Give that a try.

I have had a similar experience with a M20 Cambridge. The date problem was unfixed, so date is 1999. I couldn't download with SeeYou, but could with Aero Explorer. Couldn't right click copy/paste (it didn't work) and couldn't find the file with file explorer (or whatever it is called) in Win10. File displayed fine in AE. So, on a lark, I moved the file to "demo" in AE, then I opened the file with SeeYou, then saved into my desktop. So, it isn't the .cai file. So, the file is hidden somehow in W10. I'm not sure how to access it.
