XMLog Install File Download - Beta Version
xmlog720.zip - Version 7.20
Before using a beta version you should consider backing up
your log files and options settings files
if you do not have automatic backups enabled.
These files are found in your XMLog install
folder (usually c:\mlog).
- Log files: Files with .log extensions
- Option settings files: Files with .ini extentions
- Custom QSL/Mailing label definitions: layouts.mdb
For a more complete list of XMLog files see the Backups section of the XMLog
If you have problems you can return to the previous version
by downloading and reinstalling that version.
Doing an install does not modify any log or options files.
XMLog Version History
Here's a list of changes to XMLog made since the current version
at www.xmlog.com was posted.
This info can also be displayed by using XMLog's
"Help/Display changes.txt" menu item.
*** 7.20 ***
- Bug Fix: Fixed a problem in LoTW file validation where
a prefix could be mis-compared with a country name.
- Clean up the info in the "QSL-Via/QTH/Notes/Name" columns
produced using the Log Form "Display/Display Long"" menu item.
*** 7.19 ***
- Add new menu item for the Log Window "Edit/Change Power for
*** 7.18 ***
- Bug Fix: Some of the shortcut keys (F5...F8) used to send
pre-programmed CW messages when in "CW PileUp Mode" were not
*** 7.17 ***
- Changed the name of Macedonia (Z3) to North Macedonia.
*** 7.16 ***
- Bug fix: The Log Window menu item "Import/Export - Export 'CSV' file"
was not working properly in version 7.14, it was not including commas
between fields written to the CSV file.
*** 7.15 ***
- Bug fix: Fixed an install problem with version 7.14, the file "IndependentCities.lst"
was not being installed.
*** 7.14 ***
- Reorganized XMLog's internal county handling. LoTW is now allowing
county values that are actually "Independent Cities". These values
were being treated as errors when XMLog applied LoTW data to a log file.
We now allow these values and move them to the "County" field but ignore
them for purposes of Awards/Counties reports. "Independent Cities" are
not part of any county and can be found in VA (mostly), MD, MO, and NV.
To make things a bit more confusing some independent cities are located
within a county of the same name, for example Virginia contains an
independent city "Richmond City" within "Richmond" county.
- As part of the county reorganization XMLog now allows county
values that may be supplied by LoTW for Japanese QSOs. These values
correspond to Japanese cities, wards, ku, and guns. The values are
not checked to see if they are valid but they are checked for
form (that is, numeric and from 4-6 digits). LoTW may also supply
a Japanese prefecture as the state in the form of a two digit numeric
value. This prefecture duplicates the first two digits of the
- The main effect of this county reorganization is the elimination
of the error messages displayed for "Independent Cities" and Japanese
county/state values during an XMLog LoTW import.
- Changed the district number for Alaskan census area Kusilvak from
two to four.
*** 7.13 ***
- Added MFSK modes: FST4W, JTMS, FSK64L, MFSK128L, and Q65
*** 7.12 ***
- The popup menu displayed for right-clicks on Log Window callsign
fields now include "Set Rotor To..." entries for both short and
*** 7.11 ***
- Changed the name of Swaziland (3DA) to Kingdom of Eswatini.
- Bug Fix: LoTW passwords that contained special characters
(like #, @, %, ...) were not being handled correctly.
*** 7.10 ***
- Bug Fix: The DXCC and WAS Totals report option "Show QSL Card And
LoTW Totals" was only working if there were Submitted or Accepted
- Bug Fix: Some newer Yaesu rigs have new modes added which were
encoded as hexadecimal values. These values were not being handled
correctly by XMLog and "Bad format" messages were displayed.
- Added the Yaesu FTDX10 to the list of supported rigs.
