Release Notes

About the Downloads


TracerX-Logger.dll The logger assembly. The only TracerX file you must install with your application, unless you also want to install the viewer.
TracerX-Viewer.exe The viewer application. You may want to associate this with the .tx1 file extension.
TracerX-Viewer.exe.config The config file enables the viewer to save various settings like the most recently used file list, column selections, etc. The .exe may not start without the .config, so you must install this file in the same directory as the TracerX-Viewer.exe file. This file is not required for logging.


The source download includes a Visual Studio 2010 solution containing five projects:
  • TracerX-Logger
  • TracerX-Viewer
  • HelloWorld
  • TestApp
  • Sample
If you want to insert the TracerX source into your own solution, just copy the TracerX-Logger and TracerX-Viewer directories. You don't need to keep any of the other projects or solution-level files.

CHM File

The .chm file (compiled help) was generated from the XML comments embedded in the TracerX-Logger source code.

Viewer Changes

  1. Displays a "start page" when there is no file loaded.
  2. Can be deployed and used via ClickOnce.
  3. Added a "New Window" item to the File menu (it actually starts another instance).
  4. Added a Close button to the toolbar.
  5. Put "new version is available" notice on the start page.
  6. Fixed incorrect icon that appears in column header after filtering is cancelled.
  7. Fixed inaccurate "percent complete" displayed when loading a large file.

Logger Changes

  1. Fixed bug that occurs when logging to multiple binary files while logging method calls and using circular logging at the same time.

Reviews for this release

Great piece of software: - easy to integrate - replaces my Trace.WriteLine statements without loosing tracing in Output windows in Debug mode. - Can be used on-demand w/o restarting the app - Thread-safe - At any rate this product is all of this more. Very stable. I also tried coming v5.2 (password-encrypted) - worked great!

This is a good quality tracer product. Thank you. I appreciate the documentation (just the right amount of it) and the viewer. For a non-commercial product, that's just a treat. The UI isn't the best, but it's good enough so why put in the effort; it's just frosting. The code was very easy to follow and modify. I appreciate your coding style.
