PDW Support / Re: formaat Filter.ini

Hi djenn,

I've successfully added to and edited filters.ini by hand using Notepad and Notepad+. Note that the format and structure is tightly defined and mistakes can easily be made that cause it not to function  as expected.

My guess would be that VB is inserting additional characters in your filters.ini file.

I suggest you hexview a standard filters.ini and a VB produced filters.ini and see if there is a difference in the end of line and end of file characters.

Ok well, I'm trying to convert a list of cap codes and insert the converted list in the filters.ini file.
I use visual basic to do so.
But PDW refuses to start when i use it with this list, I thought it had something to do with special line endings in the .ini file and I checked with a hex editor but i cannot see any difference between the origional file and the file that i created so I wonder is there a special way to add filters (except  adding them in PDW by hand)?

After trying multiple different combinations and a hint I picked up from another post, I was able to get it working.  Below is how it is setup in PDW.

Code: [Select]
Enable Command file field = C:\UniServerZ\core\php71\php.exe

Arguments = C:\UniServerZ\www\inhouse-db.php "%7"

The trick was to put the path and PHP script file in the arguments as well as putting the %7 in quotes.

All is working great now.

De voertaal op dit forum is Engels. Voor ondersteuning bij het gebruik van PDW verwijs ik je naar het Scannerforum (Scannersoftware > PDW).

PDW Support / format Filter.ini

Ik wil aan PDW een aantal filters toevoegen voor Drenthe.
Daartoe had ik een lijst gedownload met capcodes en omschrijvingen, mbv van visual basic heb die lijst omgezet in een formaat zoals het in filters.ini staat.
Alleen weigert pdw te starten met die lijst.
Ik heb al met een hex editor gekeken of er speciale regel afsluitingen zijn maar dat lijkt me niet.
Dus mijn vraag is of er speciale dingen zijn waar ik op moet letten als ik buiten het programma om een filterbestand aanmaak.

Sorry - never needed to try this.
Have you tried it with another executable? Maybe the executable you are running doesn't work in command mode? Is there a way of logging exactly what happens in the Command Window?
PDW Support / Filter Command File
« Last post by pcolvin on 14 Jan 2018, 21:41:55 »
I am trying to get PDW to launch a PHP script from the Command File in the Filter.  I am running a WAMP on the machine and all I want to pass is the message text using %7. 

What I have in for the command file c:\path\to\command\php.exe inhouse.php and in the Arguments %7.

I have a batch file that runs the PHP file file and I can pass the simulated message text in the batch file and everything works fine.  I just can't seem to get PDW to launch the PHP file.  I command prompt windows does appear briefly, and disappears, but the PHP script is not being launched.  If it was, the script would write to a log file to confirm that it ran.

Has anyone had any luck launching executables and passing arguments?

Thanks in advance.
PDW Development / How to change the word "TONE ONLY" ?
« Last post by KalleA on 12 Jan 2018, 22:06:37 »

I have turned "show tone only message" on the PDW program
Are there any of you who know if it's possible to change the text (check attached photo) for something else?

For example: test or wake up ..... etc

I have "looked" in the exe file, but can not find some places where it can be changed?

Thanks in advance

I have used WinPE-Sc with 100% success in the past, I had an old PC running Windows XP and I used a Motorola GM300 radio as the transmitter and it worked perfectly, the keying for the radio was done via the printer port. I didn’t have as much success using a newer laptop because of the newer sound card.
