Official 1010 Software
The Setup Program will want to put the program into the default path: the C:\Win1010 folder, but it gives you an opportunity to put into a directory of your choice. I recommend accepting the default Setup Directory of C:\Win1010. If you are using one of the older versions of Windows, you may get the message that some of your files need to be updated. The latest versions of several of the DLL and OCX files were used when compiling the Win1010 program. You should answer "Yes" to let the program update your files. If you may get a message that a certain file (most likely msvcrt.dll or mfc40.dll) is in use and cannot be updated or a "File Access Error", again hit "Ignore" and then "Yes" to continue. This version has been compiled with Visual Basic 6.0 with Windows XP. The original versions were compiled with VB5 using Windows 2000. VB6 is more Vista friendly.
This is the full Win1010 Suite of the four programs (Contest, County Hunter, Certificate Chaser and Daily Log). As downloaded, it will run in the demo mode with a 25 record limit in each of the four modules. Upon purchase, an User ID file (user_95.dat) will be supplied to remove this 25 record limit. Purchase info is given on the other HDS 1010 Software Web pages.
See the "What's New In Version 3.6" web page for details on new features and changes in Version 3.6 and the last several updates. See the "Complete Update History" web page for a complete update history on Win1010 (not finished).
My Mozilla Firefox web browser does not give the option to "Open" or "Run" the file, but the Internet Explorer does. Run from the web or download into a temp folder and run. The update program will get the proper path from the Windows Registry. Everytime Win1010 runs it writes the path to the Registry. See the contents web page for all files in the update package and see the "What's New In Version 3.6" web page for changes and new features.
This stand-alone program will make ML List files that can be imported into Win1010. You can make, print, or edit your ML file or the ML file of someone else. This program can be installed by using the "Run" option when using the Microsoft Internet Explorer. See the "MLMaker Help File" web page for all the features and how it works. The same help file is also included with the program.
After you install any Win1010 update and you get the 50003 unexpected error, then your support files are not up-to-date and you need to download and install these support files. This is the entire collection of DLL and OCX support files that are needed by the Win1010 program. This is a self-extracting EXE file which can be 'Run' from this web page using Microsoft Internet Explorer. This uses the regular Win1010 Setup program, but since there are no Win1010 files, only the DLL and OCX support files will be installed. Accept the default install location in the Setup program.
Unfortunately the DLL and OCX files are not forward compatible only backward compatible. If the new update is compiled with newer DLL and/or OCX files, then those support files must also be on your computer. This has long been an issue with Microsoft and programmers.
INSTALLING AN EXISTING WIN1010 PROGRAM ON A NEW COMPUTER. If you make a CD or ZipDrive backup of the entire Win1010 folder and sub-folders, then you can just copy that backup to your new computer and then run this DLL-UP program to install the necessary DLL and OCX Windows supporting files. Copying the Win1010 folder across a network is also another possibility of transferring to the new computer.
NOTE: If you don't have download provisions, the entire current program is available on CD for $10 for registered users or anyone wishing to use the Win1010 Program in the Demo Mode. This will also contain the complete FCC program and and updated databases.
The Zip.exe file was included in several of the previous updates and is used in the CertChaser #10 Backup routine to make zip backups. If the file is not present you will get a Run Time Error #53 meaning "file not found". Unzip this file into the Win1010 folder to fix the problem.

This is the K4HAV updated DOS Version 2.0 FCC Search Program that will search the FCC Database. For more information on this program and how to download the FCC Database using a FTP program see the K4HAV FCC Web Page.
NOTE: The FCC now is posting the weekly update at about 5:00 P.M. Sunday - Georgia time. They used to have it posted early on Sunday morning.
This database is updated weekly (on Sunday or Monday - depending on the FCC). This database contains the name and address, the previous call, the date of birth and age, county, and license class. This database can be downloaded two ways:
1. As one big zip file 23 MB dated March 29, 2020. (Also download the matching index files #3 below)
2. As 14 smaller files (New FCC Format requires new FCC2 Windows version or Win1010 1.5c) dated March 29, 2020. If you have a slow connection, this is the best way to download the FCC Database. db_wa.zip, db_wb.zip, db_wd.zip, db_ka.zip, db_kb.zip, db_kc.zip, db_kd.zip, db_ke.zip, db_nn.zip, db_nl.zip, db_a.zip, db_k.zip, db_w.zip, db_ve.zip (Also download the matching index files #3 below)
3. FCC Index Files dated March 29, 2020. These are optional files that will increase the speed of the Callsign search by up to 8 times depending on which addr_xx file is being searched. These are the new FCC Format and supported by FCC2 and Win1010 Version 1.5c and later. The zipped file is about 2.6MB and requires about 8MB unzipped. NOTE: the index files date must be the matching set of files for the FCC Database downloaded (one day difference is OK in the case of converting near midnight.).
The support files consist of the Zip Code files, the Zip_AZ.TXT file, XZip.txt and the Counties.TXT file. These files should go into the FCC Directory. The Zip Code files were updated with about 646 new Zip Codes. The XZip file is a collection of Zip Codes that the FCC have transposed or they are not found in the regular Zip Code database. The city and state should be correct, but the Zip Code should be confirmed. If this file is used, then the notation (FCC Zip Data) will be placed by the city and state.
The Previous Call Database contains approximately 273.856 callsign changes dated March 29, 2020 and is updated weekly by the FCC. These files should go into the FCC Directory. NOTE: This file is only needed if you convert your own FCC raw file or desire to use the Ctrl-V routine within Win1010 to find a new call when inputting an old one.
The new Windows version that requires some of the same DLL and OCX files as Win1010. If you have already installed Win1010, then all you need is this FCC2.EXE and help files. The file name is FCC2.ZIP Unzip and put into your existing FCC folder or create a new one named FCC2 for instance. Then set your path in Win1010 to the new folder. The Convert Help files will list the files needed in the FCC2 folder. If you have already installed the FCC2 program for Windows Version 1.0, then just unzip this file into your FCC folder. It is the FCC2.EXE and help files. Note: Version 1.3 adds the Canadian database to the Name search and creates a text file for the Name and Zip Searches named Found.TXT, which can be loaded into a word processor. Version 1.4 adds some traps for possible errors and several changes to the conversion routine. Version 1.5 adds several traps to prevent errors and places the results of the Call search on the Windows Clipboard for pasting (Ctrl-V) into NotePad or whatever you desire. Version 1.6 adds support for the 85000 size 1010 database.
