A quick report to let you know I downloaded your wcounties.zip and ran it 
against my 2006 MN QSO Party log. No errors were reported, the program reported 
it converted 67 counties, and a quick visual cross-checking showed it converted 
ANO into MN, Anoka (as well as many other county names). I am running Windows 
XP Pro S/P 2.

You may consider posting some statistics of the conversions on the display in 
one of your future versions. For example, what counties were recognized and 
converted, and how many Q's with each... and then there's the Q's per mode 
total too.

Keep in mind I am a "data junkie" and this may be out of scope for your 
product! The contesting software should provide this information, but it would 
be a nice cross-check of the numbers.

I have developed a Windows GUI version of my ADIF County Conversion 
program. It should work on Windows 2K/XP but I don't know about older 
operating systems. Download from this web page:


Download wcounties.zip and extract wcounties.exe to the directory 
where your ADIF files are located. To run the program, just 
double-click on the wcounties.exe icon and then File -> Convert. It 
will prompt you for the rest of the information. By default, the 
output file name is the same as the input file name with the STATE 
abbreviation appended to the base part of the file name, i.e. 
CQP2006.ADI -> CQ2006_CA.ADI.

This is my first Windows GUI program and I'm interested in feedback 
in any shape or form.  Please try it on Windows 95/98 and let me know 
if it runs.

I still have a lot to learn, but I hope to release other 
Windows-based programs in the future.
