  1. Error: "RockPack III has expired"

    Recently another user found that he also had to INSTALL the program by right-clicking on the RockPack installer file and selecting Run As Administrator, even though he was an admin on his computer. So here is a summary of the steps to take to install and launch RockPack III under Windows 10: Download the installation ZIP file from the RockWare website (RockPack's page, Free Trial tab). Save the installation ZIP file to your computer. When the download is complete, extract the "rkpk" folder and "notes" document from the ZIP file. Locate the installer in the "rkpk" folder, it is named "setup.exe" Right-click on the installer file and choose Run As Administrator. Click Yes if Windows asks you to confirm you want to run the installer. Install using the defaults. When the installation is complete, right-click on the RockPack III program icon and choose Run As Administrator. Click Yes again if Windows again requires confirmation. If you see the "Registration" window, enter: Name: Type in your name. Company: Type in your company name. Serial Number: If you purchased a license copy/paste in the RockWare-supplied Serial Number. If you wish to use RockPack in demo mode, leave this field blank. Click OK.
  2. Where to Download Keyword and Pattern Files

    Hi Bryce, OK the LogPlot7-generation files are posted now to the same LogPlot Data page (scroll down to the bottom of the page). Thanks Molly RockWare Inc
  3. Where to Download Keyword and Pattern Files

    Hi Bryce, Thanks for your posting and sorry for the delay in replying. We just posted a zip file with USCS keyword ("USCS_soils.lpkey") and pattern ("USCS_soils.RwPat") libraries to our website, on the Support | LogPlot | Downloads | Data page. Also included in the ZIP file are a sample PDF file showing the terms, patterns, and colors, and the LogPlot8 data and design files we used to generate that preview. Use the Download button on that page to save a ZIP file to your computer. Once saved there, extract the keyword and pattern files to your C:\ProgramData\RockWare\LogPlot8 folder. Use the Options | System Files window in the LogPlot8 program to browse for these files to be used as the default libraries. Or use the Append tool (Keyword editor) or Import Selected Patterns tool (Pattern editor) to combine the USCS files to your existing libraries. If you want to, you can extract the remaining files to Documents\LogPlot8 Data\Samples or to another folder of your choice. We will be posting additional libraries on that same Data Downloads page shortly, but we wanted to get this reply posted asap. Let us know if you have any questions. Molly RockWare Inc

  8. Invalid file name -%s

    Hi Paola, Thanks for your question. I just tested this in RockWorks17, and my striplog exported to DXF with no problems. So... 1. did you enter a name for the DXF file to be created in the DXF Export window? 2. What version of RockWorks are you using? You are welcome to save your striplog diagram in RockPlot2D and email that ".Rw2D" file to "support at rockware.com" and we can test the export with that file. Since this problem appears to be data-specific, please direct continued discussions about this issue via email to the support email address. . Thanks Molly Mayfield
  9. New versions of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following changes: Improvements + The bulk import for LAS files into the Borehole Manager will now handle LAS version 3.0 files. The bulk import will now allow a filter for depths, NULL conversions and decimation of data. + LAS files (Version 3.0) can be imported into the Utilities datasheet. The options have been expanded to allow NULL conversions and decimation of data. These two improvements will only import Log/Curve data. Other sections allowed in the LAS version 3.0 specification are ignored for these imports. They can be imported via the single file import in the Borehole Manager. + Stratigraphy legends now use the background color for the pattern when "Background Colors" are turned off, so that they match unfilled section panels. + RockPlot2D is now using GDI+ for displaying transparent images and images with a transparent color. + Added an option to the Vertical Panels to Color Model and Vertical Panels to X/Y/Z/Color to sample by distance instead of pixels. + Improved the drawing quality and speed of raster images in 2D Strip Logs. These changes can be seen anywhere that 2D Strip Logs are plotted (e.g. Cross Sections, Profiles, Stratigraphy Picker, etc.). Bug Fixes + Fixed an issue when running RCL files that displaying 2D graphics caused an Invalid Pointer error. + Fixed a problem in which the Borehole Manager Check Data Integrity menu option would display an OS Function error if the error list output to HTML was too big to be displayed in the RockWorks browser component. + The path for the Constraining Surface was being removed if the grid file was in a different folder than the project. + Fixed an Access Violation in the Projected Section EZ contouring (Striplog menu).

  10. A customer recently emailed us saying that his IT group was getting their SQL Server set up and figuring out his access to the server through the firewall. He inquired: Can you tell me if RockWorks users need full admin rights on the computer it is installed on or just power user / Win10 equivalent? Here is our short answer: No, users do not need Admin rights to run the RockWorks17 program. Long answer: While Admin rights are not necessary to run the program, RockWorks - when connecting to a SQL Server - does require the ability to Create, Read, Update, and Delete records in the SQL server database. This level of permission is established through permissions on the SQL Server side, not in RockWorks. Note that if you don't have permission to create new fields in the database, which is higher than the "CRUD" permissions above, that is generally ok except when we update the data dictionaries. This could cause problems when you install an update for RockWorks. But there is a work-around for this - you can activate a setting in the database connection window in RockWorks17 for the SQL Server to "Generate a SQL Script File without executing it" for these cases. Then just give the script file to the network Admin to run, and it then the necessary fields will be added to the SQL Server database. Molly Mayfield RockWare Support

Improvements: + Speeded up the saving of Log Design files (.ldfx8). + Added options for saving backups of Log Designer files (.ldfx8) to a custom location or not to save backups at all (not recommended). + The status bar in the Log Designer now maximizes the display of the current filename depending on the window width. Bug Fixes: + The Vertical Text column could not be displayed with transparency on a printer and has been modified so that the text is never transparent but the remainder of the interval is. + The drawing of some column baselines in compiled logs were off by 1 pixel. + Pattern border line widths weren't being scaled to the output resolution. + Pattern border were being draw 1 pixel short of their correct location.

  12. LogPlot8 supports Unicode characters, but older versions did not, and many non-English-language characters were not supported. If you are a Windows10 user, here are some steps you can follow to display specific language characters in programs which are not Unicode-compatible. Open the Windows Control Panel. Click Time and Language. Click Region and Language. Scroll down, below the languages which are displayed, and click Administrative Language Settings. Under the section "Language for non-Unicode programs" be sure it is set to the desired language. Since old versions of LogPlot do not support Unicode (LogPlot8 does) you have to load this "code page". If it is not set to the desired language, click the Change System Locale button, select the language, and click OK. Click Apply and OK. You may need to restart Windows to apply these changes. Thanks to Tomo for bringing this to our attention! Molly Mayfield RockWare Inc
  13. New versions of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following changes: New Features + RockWorks will now import LAS (Log ASCII standard) version 3.0 into the database. The Reader will still read previous versions 1.2 and 2.0. + You can now add a scalebar to your RockPlot3D scenes, at the top or bottom of the view. You can also specify a vertical and horizontal offset. Improvements + If RockWorks cannot load a project image, it will display a more informative message for the user. + Implemented code to protect against importing text longer than the database field size for Types Tables Fixes + The Stratigraphy Grids to Logs program now saves the correct grid-based values to the database rather than the original values + Fixed a problem causing a FireDAC error message that would occur when importing data from archived text files + Fixed a problem with Section/Fence location maps in projects with mixed X-Y / Elevation-Depth (meters v feet) units + Stratigraphy rules are improved for projects with mixed X-Y / Elevation-Depth (meters v feet) units To download this build, use the Help | Check for Updates menu inside RockWorks17.

  14. LogPlot 8 2018.9.10

    New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were released on September 10th, 2018 with the following changes: Improvements + Added an option to switch Font Quality to: Non-Antialiased (current), Antialiased, and Clear Type. Clear Type provides better antialiasing than the Windows standard antialiasing, + When saving a LogPlot 8 Data Template it now populates the filename based on the current Design Template. + When LogPlot8 loads a Design Template it now looks for a Data Template file (.ldatx) with the same name and uses that to create an empty data file. + An interval check has been added to all interval data at compile time. The interval check tests for swapped intervals and intervals with 0 height. Users can choose to swap depth values or ignore then interval for each line or for all lines. Zero height intervals will be skipped. Users can also hide the interval error messages from the compile dialog. + A Smoothing option has been added to Cross Plots and Curves. + Increased the accuracy of the TVD scalebar. + Improved lithology description clipping at the top of the page and long descriptions at the bottom of the page. Bug Fixes + Lithology Descriptions and Well Construction Descriptions whose offsets exceeded past the bottom of the last page now cause the program to add additional pages as needed. + When Importing a Design Template from LogPlot 2005 or older it now creates temporary file in the current Project Folder rather than the folder where the imported file resides. + When Importing a Design Template from LogPlot 2005 or older the page sizes were not being correctly imported. + The Break Curve option was always being set on in the LogDesigner Curve dialog. + Lithology Patterns are now skipped if the interval is less than or equal to zero.

  15. A new version of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) was uploaded to the RockWare website on August 30, 2018, with the following changes: New Features: + A new text object, called Anchored Text, has been added to RockPlot2D that consolidates text with a leader line and an optional border that can be filled. The first point entered is the origin and the second point is the position of the top left corner of the text. Move the text and the anchor will stay in place or move the anchor point and the text will stay in place + The "Overlay" option in various 2D map dialogs has been changed to "Additional Layers". The program now allows you to place RP2D layers either above or below the new map content. When the setting is for Below the layers are added in reverse order. + Added an option to switch Font Quality in RockPlot2D to: Non-Antialiased , Antialiased (default), Clear Type or Clear Type Natural. Clear Type and Clear Type Natural provide better antialiasing then the Windows standard antialiasing. Improvements: + Added an option to "Include disabled rows" in datasheet Column Math + Increased precision for the drawing of Stratigraphic Fences + Scientific Notation can now be applied to RockPlot3D Color Legends built from tables + Eliminated banding in RockPlot3D Stratigraphy Model sides panels. + Eliminated jagged edges in RockPlot3D Fence diagrams that require high precision. + RockPlot3D Iso-Surfaces are now drawn with more precision to avoid wavy surfaces. + The P-Data and I-Data GT Compositing now lets you select a maximum cutoff instead of a minimum cutoff. + The Shapefile Exports from RockPlot2D and RockPlot3D now let you select an existing ESRI Projection File (*.prj) to be used with Shapefile. + The Borehole Manager and Utilities Borehole Survey program now adds the ability to only display a report for the depths in the survey data + The Borehole Survey program now allows the user to create a report at only the depths listed in the orientation data. Fixes: + Lines in the RockPlot3D Reference cage have been thickened so that they display more reliably + Surfaces in RockPlot3D weren't calculating normals correctly which caused incorrect lighting artifacts + Thin lines in the RockPlot3D Reference Grid would hide at certain viewing angles + GT Grade X Thickness program was not clearing the correct tracks + Contours in Sections, Profiles and Projected Sections are now drawn correctly + The filename edit is sized out of it dialog in Windows 7 using large fonts + The ReportWorks border options for the Pattern Legend were displaying on the wrong tab. + Plotting gridded 2D Contours generated spurious contours when the G value range was very large. + Sieve diagram symbols are now plotted. + The Stiffmap diagrams were not being rescaled correctly. + The Stratigraphy Picker now prompts for adjustment when the Save button is clicked + The Stratigraphy and Lithology Pickers did not display units correctly when using collar elevation + The Stratigraphy and Lithology Pickers did not display logs hung from the top correctly when using the collar elevation + The Auto-offset now works better in Stiff Map. + The extents of a RockPlot3D scene weren't being set correctly when created from Volumetrics/Extract Solids + The RW15 to RW17 file converter program's items were rearranged, and now the procedures are correctly called.
