AC Log Upgrade Steps


If you are upgrading from an old, 3X (or even earlier) version of AC Log, don't uninstall before upgrading. Instead, please see the steps for upgrading from 3X (and earlier) versions farther down the page.


Steps for upgrading from AC Log 4.0 and later:

First back up your log by clicking File > Create Backup or File > Export ADIF and saving your log file to a location that is easy for you to find. After installing the upgrade, your existing log file should appear by default, but it is always a good idea to back up your log first, just to be sure.

Uninstall the previous version from Windows Control Panel (Programs and Features or Add / Remove Programs, depending on OS). Your existing log and settings files will not be affected by uninstalling.


Click this download link and allow the installer to run.

After setup is complete, just start the latest version from the Windows Start menu, N3FJP Software - Affirmatech program group and you will be all set! If you are a registered user, you should not be prompted to enter your registration again and any settings you customized should continue to display and work as you previously configured them.

If your log did not appear and / or you were prompted for your password after the upgrade, it is likely that you reinstalled using a different Windows user profile. Please see this FAQ for more details or go ahead and reenter your password and restore your log from the backup you created.

Enjoy the latest version of Amateur Contact Log!

Steps for upgrading from all prior VB6 versions of AC Log (from 3.4 and earlier):

Click this download link and allow the installer to run. Let the new version install in its own working directory (just follow the prompts). DO NOT attempt to install the program in the same directory as a previous version of AC Log.

Start AC Log, enter the password we previously sent you or enjoy the 45 day free trial if you haven't yet registered AC Log! Upgrades are always free to registered users!

To transfer your log data, from the old version of AC Log (or any logging program that exports in ADIF), click File > Export ADIF and save the file to a location you can easily find.

From the new version of AC Log, click File > Import ADIF and select the file you exported.

Since this is entirely new code with a new file format, there isn't a way to bring over your customized settings from the old version of AC Log, but I think you'll find setting AC Log back up even quicker and easier then the old version!

Upgrading to future versions of the rewrite will be as simple as uninstalling this version and installing the next!
