DriveR8Convert Utility

DriveR8Convert is a utility program for use with the DriveR8 Control Program.

The DriveR8Convert software is currently Freeware.

Current Release Information

Note! I check all my software before uploading with Malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Essentials.  In addition I use VirusTotal.com to confirm as they have over 60 scanner engines.  Despite these actions you may find that your software will flag my software because I use a source protection obfuscator which confuses it.  Please report to me via Email any cases where you find any issue with downloading my software.   When  I receive such reports I download myself and revalidate.  I then contact the anti virus software vendor with a false positive report.   It can take them 48 hours or longer to process and update their definitions.  Meanwhile you can also use VirusTotal.com for yourself and decide if you want to create an exception in your software.

Thanks to Everyone

Just a "top note" to say thanks to everyone using my program.  With each release not only are new functions being added BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY those bugs (silly or large) that people care to tell me about are getting fixed.  So if you see/experience a bug of any description then please let me know.

DriveR8Convert Utility Program

The Program is currently Freeware (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freeware) and is fully operational with no limitations.  The author reserves the right to change the program status and limitations on any future release.  Existing releases will retain their status and your right to use them but support may not be available.

DriveR8Convert enables DriveR8 Control Program users to take CSV files (like the free web CSV files from RadioReference.com) and convert them to DriveR8 Control Program format files.  For any CSV file you can create and save a profile for future use.  With a little bit of luck this utility will enable you to create DriveR8 format files from all your favourite other CSV format data files.  

By providing DriveR8Convert as a separate program as opposed to integrating CSV file import into the DriveR8 Control Program I hope to:
  1. not destabilise DriveR8
  2. have a utility that I can develope as a companion to the DriveR8 Control Program
DriveR8 written in Visual Basic and .NET V3.5.  The program is currently portable and will run from any "user" directory it is placed in.  It also currently makes no registry changes or any other system changes, no required network connections etc. so is benign in nature and operation and protects your privacy.  If a Windows system directory, like Program Files, is chosen then administrator rights will have to be assigned to the program.  For security reasons it is suggested/recommended that a User directory is chosen.

The program also makes no hidden calls home and will not automatically check for program updates.
