System Files CallMaster Files LoTW/10-10 Files Help Files ProLog Updater V7 Update Files 

Version 8.40.06

This area of the ProLog website provides our customers with files that support the operation of the ProLog system. Some file Some files, like the CallMaster Supplement file, require a User ID and password while others are provided as a service to keep your ProLog system up to date with the latest Executable, Prefix, Award and Help update files.
 
When ProLog-V8 was installed on your computer, a folder named "X:\\ProLog Update Files", was created in the root directory of your volume (Typically 'C') where ProLog-V8 was installed. This folder is used to store the various update files that support the Prolog System. Once the update file(s) have been downloaded to the Update Files folder, the new ProLog Updater Program (PUP) will handle the local transfer and integration of the update file(s).

The downloading and installation process together with file format descriptions is comprehensively covered in the ProLog-V8 Help File. For Users of ProLog-V7 and for the general convenience of all, that section of the Help File has been replicated on this website. Click here to display that information.


 

 


 

 

       

 


 

 



ATTN: Malwarebytes Users

The Malwarebytes program interferes with the installation of ProLog program files.  Apparently it not only prevents installation but either deletes the installer program or moves it into quarantine WITHOUT WARNING!  If you are using Malwarebytes you need to disable Malwarebytes during installation or exclude a few ProLog folders from Malwarebytes.  If you use the Exclusion options you should be able to keep Malwarebytes running during ProLog update installations  To exclude ProLog from scans, open Malwarebytes and click on the Settings tab, followed by the Exclusions tab.  From the Exclustions tab navigate the the "C:\Program Files (x86)\PROLOG-V8"  folder and add that folder to the exclusions list.  If you are running the 32-bit version of Windows, navigate to the "C:\Program Files\PROLOG-V8" folder and add that folder to the exclusions list.  The final folder to exclude is the folder used to install ProLog updates.  Again, from the Exclusions tab in Malwarebytes, navigate to the "C:\ProLog Update Files" folder and add that to the exclusion list.  You can refer to https://www.malwarebytes.com/support/guides/mbam-legacy/MalwareExclusions.html for information directly from Malwarebytes.  If you attempted to install a ProLog update or upgrade and it was deleted by Malwarebytes, follow the instructions on exclusion that are outlined above, and again download and install the update or upgrade file. Please keep in mind that ProLog does not and never has included any spyware, malware or viruses in any of its programs. 



ProLog-V8 System Upgrade File (UD_V8.40.06)

Detailed Version History



Attention ProLog Version 8.40.x Users: If you are currently using the licensed version of ProLog Version 8.40.xx, the UD_V8406 file is an UPDATE and is completely free.  Simply download and install the update using PUP.  For information on the V8.40.06 enhancements, click here.  Users of ProLog Versions 8.30.2 or earlier must purchase this version as an upgrade before use and are referred to NOTE-1 below.

The 8.4x.x versions of ProLog represent a major upgrade to facilitate data transfers between ProLog and both WSJT-X or JTAlert when operating the FT8 and FT4 modes.  Operationally, when ProLog links to either application, QSO data is sent to ProLog where it is automatically saved in the currently selected logbook. This new feature will eliminate the need for exporting and importing ADIF files between the applications.

NOTE-1: The new UD_V8406 package is an
UPGRADE for anyone using ProLog V8.30.2 or earlier and is not a free update, and is available for purchase via our secure order form.  All ProLog users must have a registered account with DataMatrix to activate the UD_V8406 upgrade. After you place your UD_V8406 order, we will contact you via email with further instructions regarding the download and installation of the UD_V8406 installation package. In some cases, this process may require the installation of a new license file which we will supply via your personal account. 

NOTE-2:
To prepare your ProLog system for the installation of the new UD_V8406 upgrade, perform the following steps:

1)   Click Help > About ProLog and note your current version which is directly below the ProLog Logo. Due to major changes in the program, depending on your current version of ProLog, you may have to progressively update your system before you can install the UD_V8406 upgrade. 
IMPORTANT: In order to progressively update, you must be currently running a version of ProLog in the V8.xx series. If you are running an earlier version of ProLog (V3, V4, V5, V6, V7) progressive updating is NOT an option. If such is the case, to begin the V8.40.06 upgrade process, you must first download and install the ProLog-V8 Demo Program and then once the demo is installed and operational, you may then proceed to purchase the ProLog Logging System (New Installation) from the secure order form.

2)   If your ProLog version is V8.30.1 or greater, proceed to step #4.

3)   If your ProLog version number is less than or equal to V8.10.7 then you must first download and install the UD_V8302 version update, then re-index all of your logbooks.

4)   When your ProLog system version displays "V8.30.1" or "V8.30.2" (Help > About ProLog), your ProLog system is up to date, you may then proceed to purchase the V8.40.06 upgrade from the
secure order form.


WARNING!! Do not download and install the UD_V8406 upgrade until you have purchased the upgrade and have received an authorization email from DataMatrix.  The reason for this warning is that the installation process will overwrite your existing version of ProLog, and without the proper authorization code and license, the upgrade application will not launch. Should this occur, to return your ProLog system back to normal operation, you will have to roll-back the UD_V8406 upgrade installation by downloading and re-installing the UD_V8302 update package. Alternatively, simply leave the UD_V8406 installation in place, order the UD_V8406 upgrade package via the secure order form, and we will send you the authorization codes via Email.

The CallMaster database supplement file is updated on a monthly basis. This file is initialized each time a new CallMaster volume is released, so do not download an update file if you are using an earlier release of the CallMaster product. Additionally, each update file is edition specific, meaning they are not interchangeable. Use only the update file for your specific subscription. If your update file indicates it is the "6th (Last)" file, this is your final update and your subscription will expire in one month.  You can check your update file version at any time by typing "UPDFI" in the Call field and clicking the CallMaster button.  In the Comment field of that record is a string of information indicating the Volume issue (i.e., "Apr 2019") and the update file that is currently installed.  If the update file name in the Comment field ends with "-6.EXE" it is the final update for your subscription and it is time to renew.  Please contact DataMatrix at 1-505-892-5669 or click here to renew your subscription from our secure order form. To download your CallMaster update file, click on the CallMaster Update File name in the left column of the table below.

ProLog Updater Program (PUP) (V7 Users Only)

The ProLog Updater Program (PUP) is a new ProLog Utility that makes the downloading and integration of ProLog Update Files much easier and more convenient than previous procedures. All ProLog-V8 Users will have PUP installed as a part of their system installation so there is no need, with the exception of a possible executable update, to download this file. Users of ProLog-V7 however must download and install this file into their ProLog systems so they can download and install any update or subscription (CallMaster, LoTW, QSL Route D/B) files.

This is accomplished as follows:

1) Download and save the ProLogUpdater executable file to your "x:\Program Files\ProLog-V7 folder.

2) Once the download is complete, open the "x:\ Program Files\ProLog-V7 folder and locate the ProLogUpdater.exe file. Right-click on the file name which will display a menu; locate the "Send To" menu entry, then left-click on the "Desktop (create shortcut) menu entry.

3) If you are running under Windows Vista or Windows-7/8/10, locate and right-click on the "ProLog Updater" shortcut just created, then left-click the "Properties" menu entry, then left-click the "Compatibility" tab. At the bottom of the Compatibility dialog, activate the "Run this program as an administrator" checkbox. If the checkbox is grayed, click the "Shortcut" tab then the "Advanced" button and activate the "Run as Administrator" checkbox. Make sure you "OK" and "Apply" your settings.

4) Once the shortcut has been placed on the desktop, launch PUP and follow the instructions for updating ProLog's System Files, or the CallMaster, LoTW, and QSL Route Databases.


ProLog Updater Program (PUP) Executable Updates (ProLog V7/V8)

To make sure you have the latest version, launch your Prolog Updater program and check the version number shown in the Caption Bar. If the version Number is "V1.00" then your ProLog Updater program is up to date.  If the version number is less than "V1.00" then a download of the latest version is required.

This is accomplished as follows:

1) Shutdown the Prolog Updater Program or Prolog if it is running.

2) If you are running Prolog-V8 under Windows XP, Vista-32, or Win7/8/10-32 click on the link below and download the ProLog Updater program to your "x:\Program Files\ProLog-V8" folder.
