VectorWorks Log

Recommended Posts

I have written a program that reads VectorWorks log and extract from that a "text only" file (with Tab Separated fields) to be used in databases / worksheet for statistics, billings etc..

The record fields are:

date: MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM

drawing: file name

time: HH:MM

The program (I called it logex) is working fine with my VW11 version and is localized for English and Italian (my native language), but, while testing on VW12 logs, (thanks to VectorDepot), we discovered a bug in the report produced by that version.

The problems is in the Saved as lines.

VW11 produces a report like this:

1/6/2006 4:59 PM Opened "file1".
1/6/2006 4:59 PM Saved "file1" as "file2".
1/6/2006 4:59 PM Closed "file2".

Unfortunately the same in VW12 appears as:

1/6/2006 4:59 PM Opened "file1".
1/6/2006 4:59 PM Saved "file2" as "file2".
1/6/2006 4:59 PM Closed "file2".

Note that the name at left is the same as the one at right (the new name!). There is no chance for my program to recognize what is the name of the file you was saving as.

Is there anyone that can confirm this bug? I'd like to know if it happens only with VW12 or the problem is already present in VW11.5. Previous version (I am user since 8.5 to 11) had not such a problem.

Is there anyone at Nemetschek aware of this?

Thank you for helping.

This program should be published soon on Vector Depot

It exists in VW 12 01. I don't have 12 0 0 to try it with. I'll check older versions later today.
