### Using the EulumdatTools Validator to check 4000+ files (How To video)

To illustrate how to use the validator part of EulumdatTools to check the Manufacturers name in a large set of files I created below video.

You will find ready to install downloads for Windows, Linux and Mac OSX both 32 and 64 bit at the download site. 30 day free trial after registration!

### New version of EulumdatTools 0.9.10.v20121130 released

A new version of EulumdatTools 0.9.10.v20121130 was published on November 30th at http://www.fold1.com/eulumdattools/. Improvements and bug fixes are as follows:
• Significant speed improvements in the validator by saving all workspace update events (IWorkspaceRunnable & IResourceProxy) till after update.
• Speed ups in some of the QuickFixes that can be opened from the Problem View by executing them directly in the background instead of opening (too) many editors. This is most notable in the Manufacturers Name quick fix that now performs effortlessly using very large (4000+ files) file sets. Further focus will be on improving all checkers this way.
• Numerous small bug fixes that produced errors.
• EVAL licenses have all options of a FULL license during the trial period, except that most batch operations like conversions and quick fixes are limited to max 20 files. UNLICENSED or EXPIRED users will have no use of the validators at all.

Current users of EulumdatTools can use the Check for Updates… menu as described in the below HowTo video.

### A new version of EulumdatTools 0.9.9.v2012115 released

A new version of EulumdatTools 0.9.9.v20121115 was published on November 15th at http://www.fold1.com/eulumdattools/. The hardcoded beta-expiry date is extended to 2013-04-01. The Validator options that are not available in the UNREGISTERED or EXPIRED version are now dimmed. These are:
• product code not empty
• product code format (pattern)
• power (wattage) not zero
• correct manufacturer name (pattern)
• correct filename field
• correct date and protocol field (pattern)
• defined Direct Flux Factors (not zero)
• correct Direct Flux Factors
• correct LOR
• correct Down Flux
In general these also don't work in UNREGISTERED or EXPIRED versions:
• content assist (lamp types) and syntax coloring in the EULUMDAT Text Editor
• no popups when opening EULUMDAT Editor
• unlimited batch IES to EULUMDAT and vice versa conversion
• unregistered checks only known lamp type, registered also checks:
Validator preferences could only be set at the global level, applying to all projects. Since the previous version these validator preferences can also be set on the project level, providing more flexibility. Also there the options are limited in UNREGISTERED or EXPIRED versions.
