User Reviews

  • I opened a log file as described in the readme.txt expecting that it would tail this file - that is allow you to see the file change. It simply doesn't work - well not for me on a Win7 machine. The only way you can get it to update is by opening the log file in notepad - then this WinTail program updates! This is my experience and therefore makes this program worst than useless since I had to spend time finding out that it does less than periodically opening in notepad.

  • Great software! But i miss a search function!

  • I could open a 13 GB text file with this tool. Nice!

  • very bad looking app, but indeed useful, overall 4.0

  • Anyone know where the documentation is for this app. It works reasonably well, is fast to display changes to logs, however, it is a bit flaky. Can't save workspace, what is a non-workspace vs a workspace. Why can't I add files to "workspace". Why can't I save workspaces, this is particularlly annoying because every time you start it up, you have to re-add all your logs even though there is a setting to load on open. Anyone know where the docs are?
