2017/06/27: Version 4.12
Version 4.12 now makes renaming of the exe easier by automatically creating copies for the desired receivers.
2017/06/24: Unbelievable: 60 anti-virus softwares find no malware!
Currently 60 anti-virus softwares report no malware threat in CSVUserlistBrowser.exe (current beta) and G31DDC-CSVUserlistBrowser.exe (latest final version) on virustotal.com. Even McAfee-GW-Edition, which recently assumed evil malware in CSVUserlistBrowser, all of a sudden rates the (same) software benign. You can form an opinion yourselves on the reliability of such anti-virus softwares. But I am afraid this will not last long. Sooner or later CSVUserlistBrowser is put on the red list again by some superficial, sloppy anti-virus programme.
2017/05/31: End of beta 4.11 branch
No more bug reports have come in for a long time now. I am going to release the beta 4.11 as a final version today. It contains all the addons and fixes from the beta 4.11 branch.
Important note: For a couple of days already McAfee-GW-Edition as the only one out of 55 anti-virus programmes reports that CSVUserlistBrowser.exe contains a Trojan horse named "Win32.Ramnit.vh". This malware allegedly steals passwords and homebanking data, blocks anti-virus software and takes over control of the system. Until now I did not know what a "Win32.Ramnit.vh" is and I had to research what it's all about. I explicitely declare that CSVUserlistBrowser.exe does not contain malware code, but I am helpless against the false McAfee-GW-Edition scan report. 54 anti-virus programmes (virustotal.com) rate CSVUserlistBrowser.exe benign. But if someone is concerned it is certainly better not to use my software.
2017/03/30, 11:28 UTC: AOKI A17 default txt file now available
The AOKI standard txt file nxa17.txt is now also included in the zip file. The import is now possible without ODBC driver for xlsx installed (also via the Downloader).
All current URLs for the Downloader are summarised on the page First steps.
2017/03/29, 2040 UTC: EIBI A17 at start
The URL to the new EIBI CSV file is:
In the Downloader switch EIBI list type to Sked (CSV) and enter the new URL. Click Save details. If your standard list is the EIBI txt file go back to Default (txt) and click Save details once again.
2017/03/28: AOKI A17 URL available
Some minutes ago (0911 UTC) AOKI has opened the URL for the A17 schedules.
Don't forget to click "Save details" after entering the URL in the Downloader.
Important note: Currently only the xlsx file is included in the AOKI package! The standard text file nxa17.txt is not yet available! CSVUserlistBrowser moans "Wrong content size". This means that the download only works with an ODBC driver installed and when "Use .xlsx instead of .txt in AOKI .zip file (ODBC driver needed)" is checked in Options/Settings.
Users who do not have an ODBC driver installed and what to use the AOKI database in the meantime can extract the file userlist1.txt manually from nxa17.zip to the folder filesPERSEUS and import the file as a Perseus userlist (with all known restrictions).
2017/03/27: MWLIST/FMSCAN schedules repaired (1800 UTC)
The MWLIST/FMSCAN schedules have been repaired a few minutes ago. Now the download should work again with older versions of CSVUserlistBrowser.
2017/03/27: Again problems with MWLIST/FMSCAN schedules
Unfortunately the MWLIST/FMSCAN lists are broken again since yesterday evening. I am alreday negotiating with the authors to bring back the valid format. Please be patient until a solution is available.
PS: I have just uploaded a beta version of CSVUserlistBrowser with a quick workaround for this current problem.
2017/03/13: HFCC A17 available
The HFCC A17 data are available. Please note that they are not yet official (season starts on March 26th).
2017/02/08: FMSCAN AM lists complete again
The AM lists from FMSCAN have been repaired. There is still a little issue with the UTC time format which has been changed by FMSCAN. I will make an adaptation in the beta version of CSVUserlistBrowser in the course of the day.
2017/02/07: FMSCAN AM lists broken again
Since appr. 1730 UTC the AM lists from FMSCAN only contain frequencies between 1600 and 1700 kHz! This is not a bug in CSVUserlistBrowser! Should the list format be changed again an adaptation of CSVUserlistBrowser could be necessary which will require some time.
2017/01/23: Numbers&Oddities file replaced
The broken file Numbers-2016.xlsx today was replaced by a new version Numbers 2016.xlsx (no dash). It loads OK (ODBC driver required).
2017/01/23: FMSCAN AM list repaired
The FMSCAN AM lists are OK again (1010 UTC).
2017/01/20: FMSCAN AM lists broken
Since today FMSCAN delivers an AM list with a broken line structure. CSVUserlistBrowser reports "Invalid or empty list". I am already in negotiations with FMSCAN to get the valid line structure back. I hope that there will be no changes at FMSCAN once again which require a complete new design of the CSVUserlistBrowser Downloader and file handling.
PS: The current Beta of CSVUserlistBrowser contains a quick workaround. See Readme_beta.txt.
2017/01/15: Note on Numbers&Oddities
The currently at Numbers&Oddities available file "Numbers logs database 2016" (Numbers-2016.xlsx) in Excel format is corrupt. It cannot be opened by MS Excel as well. The fault is not within CSVUserlistBrowser. The file "Numbers logs database 1978-2016" can be imported by CSVUserlistBrowser (Microsoft ODBC driver required), but due the file size (appr. 122000 entries) several seconds (even minutes) of CPU time must be taken into account (measured 30 s with a 3.6 GHz quad core CPU!).
I would like to remind you that 15 minutes are subtracted resp. added to the times given (upon user request) in order to gain a wider timeslot for possible obervations. The file contains several time errors which are caught by CSVUserlistBrowser and transformed to "0000-2400, 1234567".
2017/01/13: Final version of CSVUserlistBrowser 4.09
It is time to release the final version 4.09 of CSVUserlistBrowser. It contains all the changes and bug fixes of the 4.09 beta branch.
