    Hi Adam,
    I very apprecciate Airnef as it is the only Nikon photo trasfering software via wifi. I enjoyed it quite a long time since I have d7200. I used it on my old laptop with win10 with no problem at all.
    I had to start using a new win10 laptop (same brand, but faster…) but I cannot manage to get working Airnef at all. It is exactly same installing file. When I open the Airnef interface, setup top options, than click on any of those two options (computer X camera), it always shows nothing more than a bold sentence (ex. Download images you´ve selected in camera).
    I have even tried to start Airnef from my NAS directory, it means exactly same files to load – old laptop´s works, not the new one.
    The only possible difference could be a last major windows 10 actualisation. The new laptop passed it.
    Do you have any idea what is going on? Could you help me please?

    Hmmm, that’s strange. So it’s only showing the title of the button panel you clicked,ie “Download images you’ve selected in the camera” or “Set criteria for which images/movies to download”. Is that correct? If so it sounds like it’s hitting an exception somewhere.

    Can you try running Airnef from the source? You can do this by installing Python 2.x or 3.x, downloading the Airnef source here, unzipping the source to a new directory, then opening up a command window and running Airnef from the source via “python airnef.pyw”. That way if an exception is occurring you’ll be able to see it and report what’s happening to so that I can troubleshoot it further.

    Hi Adam,
    thank you for your intervention. I did steps you wrote – opened source via Python 3.6 and it worked as before without any problem – in home enviroment. Transfer speed was very fine (about 8s for a 25MB neff), so I decided to take it on field. I had a busy photosession on a public event and without no specific reason, speed was rapidly down and camera started disconnecting (mostly in 5m radius) etc… I will send you a mail with a last report, now, because it too long for here.
    You may have some tips, how to run a normal speed Airnef.
    Thank you
    Ondrej

    Hi Ondrej,

    I received your email. The only reason Airnef would slowdown outside of WiFi issues is if the CPU utilization of your system was much higher for some reason (like from other apps running concurrently), which would slow the Python interpreter down and thus reduce the download speed. I’ve seen this on testing I performed with other apps running that are CPU-intensive. Outside of that scenario your download speed must be related to WiFi issues. Were there many other networks around you?

    Hi Adam!
    I was running only Airnef and Lightroom when it was happening. Files were downloaded to disc and immediately imported with preset to LR, from where they were printed. I will check CPU load in the evening…
    I can´t say if there were many networks, but it sounds logical. The place was an ordinary ball hall – not offices or something “overconnected”.
