If you go to Start - Control Panel - Folder Options you can change the
folder setting to "Show hidden files, folders, and drives".  I always
unclick "Hide extensions for known files types" while I am there since I
like to see the whole file name.

C:\ProgramData\WriteLog is not visible on directory tree
ProgramData folder is hidden in Win7,
I search for wl_cty.dat and click "Open Folder" if you desire to see date
tagged on file, etc... or do manual update

The expected response to typing "Version" in callsign field is found at

LOOK carefully when open this web page.
Today for Example you'd see Rwanda, 9X with quick glance but that is not the
cty downloaded by WL (BIG CTY)
The current version is "Spratly Islands" which is listed next as CTY WL

Use the Writelog menu "Convert CTY to Writelog"
once it opens, use Download button - wait until done, pause
Is writelog closed?
Click Convert button
Pause second once complete but insure you see it's "ALL DONE"
before closing this window - keep this window open while program is
converting & watch the update notes....
Once ALL DONE, If you hadn't closed WL, Close & reopen

If you didn't see words "ALL DONE" on conversion repeat.....

Tested cty update tonight & once WL closed & reopen - the new version was
(VERSION returned correct country)

 bit more time involved when do manual update of wl_cty.dat with the folder
being hidden
