  1. This new version of the utility has changes made to it to work with the new TQSL v 1.14 and above. This will also work with previous versions for the users that do not want to upgrade yet.
    Let me know if you find any bugs or issues..

  2. Thanks for the new release.

    The file imported to LOTW is not deleted after the uploaded.
    When,I try to upload a adif file to my website via the the “website upload” feature, i got error message:
    => There was no response from server
    => This usually indicates an unexpected error occured while processing data.

    and in the debug file I got:

    07-avr-2013 16:05:35 > Prompt to Clear ADIF Audit Trail = VBYes
    07-avr-2013 16:05:46 > Web Upload Hostname= =
    07-avr-2013 16:05:46 > Web Upload Number of Records to Upload = 1
    07-avr-2013 16:05:46 > Web Upload URL Path = /lpath/to/my/file.php
    07-avr-2013 16:05:46 > WebUpload File Reference = Filename , C:\log.ADI
    07-avr-2013 16:05:46 > WebUpload Upload Begins wo/Error = 1
    07-avr-2013 16:05:47 > WebUpload Completed = 1 , 200 ,
    07-avr-2013 16:05:47 > WebUploadReturn =

    but finally, my online logbook is updated. My script runs good, what’s happen with LOTW_EQSL_Utility ?

    Any help should be appreciated ?
    Thanks in advance, Dan

  3. In the status that your script returns make sure there is no extra characters in the return. It looks like it should not give that error here is the line that is responsible for your getting that error.
    If (Upload.ResponseStatus <> 200) Then And since the upload response didn’t equal 200 it thru the Error but the upload dll said the upload completed correctly…

  4. Hi Rick,

    Thanks fer answer.

    My script returns nothing (blank page) and the server returns HTTP/1.1 200 OK


  5. Any news about my last comment ?

    I tried with an other server, and got the same result !!
    => There was no response from server
    => This usually indicates an unexpected error occured while processing data.

    and my sql database is updated.

    There is not extra characters in the return.


  6. Nice job Rick.

    I can insert a new contact but not delete it.
    The delete query is not working upon qso completion. (APP_QSO_DELETED).
    Maybe a next realease.


  7. Hi Rick
    Clicking the “Create LOTW…” button, have response: “Logger32 needs to be running…”
    But the logger32 is already running. Any help?
    (Using win8 64bit)

  8. Hi Rick

    Running the “LOTW_EQSL_Utility” makes a file “ADIF Audit Trail” on my “Logger32” catalog.
    What is this fil used for – and when is it safe to delete it ?? (It is growing fast)


  9. Thank you for the update.
    However, I have;
    Cannot find the source file
    ‘…\LOTW_eQSLUtility1498Full//@TABCTL32.OCX’ to install
    and cannot install.
    What is wrong? I am using Win7.

  10. Hi Rick, using Lotw_eqsl_utility v1.4.98 in touch with Tqsl 1.14.3 it doesn’t delete LOTW.ADI file created by Logger32 in its directory, with the “Delete ADIF file and TQ8” option switched-on too. I must delete it manually at the end of every upload. Could you check if it happen there too?
    Thank you

  11. Hi Rick,

    Having problem with LOTW_EQSL_Utility after upgraded to Logger32 last ver 3.47. never had any issues before last update.
    willing to send you DebugLog.txt file with caption of error window. Please inform me where to send the files.
    Appreciate your help very much.

  12. Any way you could make the lotw uploader just search for contacts that haven been uploaded instead of having to tag these in logger32 to get them uploaded? Being an ex dxbase uses we had a stand alone program that would do that. You could also change the date if needed for uploads also but we didnt have to tag any files. The program would upload then and tag them as uploaded for us.
    Just a thought . Keep up the fine work .

  13. hello there Rick.

    Now with the last version of Logger32 the applet freeze itself when the L32 starts. Testing to understood or which of the 4 processes (Website, LoTW, eQSL or ClubLog) are freezing it, the results is that LoTW work well. Any of other 3 freeze the applet…

    Tell me what do you need to repair this bug with this last version of L32.

    Best regards

    Jose YV5TX

  14. Thank you for very useful application.
    I have a problem recently, however. I have “Application is already running.” when starting lotw_eqsl utily from Logger32, or even starting up Logger32 as lotw_eqsl try to access clublog at start.
    How can I fix this? Probably lock file remains in somewhere…..

    Best regards,

  19. Hi,

    I’m trying to upload logs to EnzoLog ( Since there is no special tab for it I’ve tried uploading using the Website Upload tab. However, the EnzoLog website requires a login that is stored in session as opposed to just submitting a password field. I’ve tried contacting the website owner Enzo (IT9GCG), but he advised me to contact you. Is there any way to do this? If not at the moment, what would be needed to make an extension for it?


  20. Power was gone while uploading to Lotw and since then I have “Duplicate instance Lotw_eQSL_Utility Application is already running” and cannot use it. I guess the flag remains somewhere, but I cannot find where it is and cannot fix it.
    Would you please inform me how I can fix this?

  21. Hi OM,
    “LoTW QSL Downloader and Sync To Logger32” is no more working. It always show me that there aren’t new records, but it isn’t true. This happening also when click the button with ALT key pressed (it should download ALL LoTW records…).
    And again, when using “Open user homepage in browser” it open address, but website often says that we MUST use to obtain login.
    I’m using Logger32 3.49.31 and LOTW-EQSL-UTILITY 1.4.99
    Thank you

  22. Hi Rick,
    First, many thanks for your programs.
    I am using LOTW_EQSL_Utility V1.4.98 with Logger32 V3.48.290.
    For severals weeks now, when I am trying to download LoTw reports, I always get this error message
    “No New Records have been downloaded from the LOTW Server.”
    However, if I connect to LoTow, I could see records that have not been downloaded yet.
    Works fine with eQSL.
    Would you please tell me how to fix the problem ?
    regards, 73’s

  26. Hi Rick,
    I have installed the latest version today… (first time user).
    Everything went well, the utility opened up all ok, put in some info (passwords etc), It then crashed, now when I click on the EXE file it tells me that ‘application is already running’… I use the task manager to close the program. Click the EXE file again, the application now opens for a split second, then disappears…. click EXE again and it tells me the application is ‘already running’

    Windows 8.1,

    Many thanks for the help and for a nice software !

  29. Rick, I downloaded and installed 1.5.1. I still get no records.
    After reading a few of the posts it dawned on me the problem did start when the LoTW url changed.

  30. Te utility worked very well until a week ago. Now invoking it shows a screen for a split second and then nothing. Killing it in task manager does not help. Reboot does not help either.
    Why would lotw-eqsl start quitting ?

  31. Rick. What it can be Error- Main.UploadEQSLFile = ActiveX component can’t create object – last string in debug file.
    I have new notebook Win7 64. Thank you. Serge

  32. Serge..
    It seems the ActiveX dll has become unregistered. You will need to reinstall the full Installer to re-register the dll file. If you are using Windows & or 8.1 don’t install the file in any of the program Files directories. and when you do install it right click on the setup file and select “Run as Administrator”
