Winlog32 is een Amateur Radio Logboek software ontworpen en werkend op alle Microsoft Windows-platforms, bijvoorbeeld 95/98/ME/NT4/2000/XP/Vista/ Windows 7/ Windows 8/ Windows 10. Deze software is reeds vele jaren in ontwikkeling en wordt voortdurend bijgewerkt. De auteur (G0CUZ) biedt deze software gratis aan voor alle Radio Amateurs en SWL’s in ‘HamSpirit’.

Hoewel Winlog32 in het algemeen een logprogramma is , heeft het een duidelijke inslag op DX’ing op HF en VHF met uitgebreide tracking van diverse awards programma’s zoals DXCC, IOTA, WAZ, enz.

 

Changelog:

Starting with revision 42

Minor revisions will in future be released as a zipped (compressed) file for manual updating.
I have decided on this approach for several reasons , many beta versions have been distributed in the past in this manner.
It will require downloading a zipped file and copy/paste of files into a recent and existing Winlog32 installation, this should not be beyond the capabilities of any Ham!
Installation instructions will be included in the zip file.
The minor release will be a bare-bones way to update an exiting recent version.

Subsequently, the full installation will be updated less frequently and only when when there is reason to do so.

The new Rev.42 zip is available now, and will include a file ‘modes.txt’.
Modes will no longer be hard-coded into the software, and Winlog32 will now use this file as a ‘modes’ source, among other things this list is essential for importing and exporting – included real-time uploading of QSO.
This change was brought about by the large number of new digital modes and sub-modes that have been added to the ADIF spec. in 2021. Also this will enable the end-user to update his mode list manually with new definitions if it ever becomes necessary.

UPDATING AN EXISTING VERSION WITH FULL INSTALL

You are encouraged to keep Winlog32 up-to-date with any new version made available.

It is NOT necessary to un-install an older version of Winlog32, however see following paragraph.

You can update an existing version using the FULL install which will provide all the lastest updates that are required for that version. This is essential if you have not updated Winlog32 for some time (more than a year or so).

With the full installation; the install path may be choosen correctly by the installer however confirm this before proceding as this is not always the case, if incorrect click the “Change Directory” button and select and double-click the correct folder of your CURRENT Winlog32 installation, ensure that that it appears correctly as the “Directory” path in the install dialog, this is IMPORTANT! ALL update problems are caused by not observing this.

Continue with the set-up, and your previous Winlog32 version will be updated to the latest version available.

LOG database and ancillary database files will be unaffected.

The ‘Changes.txt’ file installed will contain a summary of the version changes.

UPDATING AN EXISTING VERSION USING MINOR UPDATE

The Minor Update requires manually copying and pasting the updated files from the zip file into your existing Winlog32 folder and/or sub-folders.

Modern windows versions come with a zip file handling program, once the zip is opened by double-clicking, the files can be dragged into the Winlog32 folder if open in another window, or use the copy/paste methods as with any other files, keyboard ‘ctrl+C’ (copy), ‘ctrl+V’ (paste)

Another method is to right-click the file name in the zip, and select ‘copy’, then navigate to the Winlog32 folder and right-click ‘paste’.

You may be asked whether you want to replace the existing file, yes you do.

Instructions on how to handle the files is included in ‘readme.txt’ in the zip file and should be referred to before attempting the update.
