Reviews for this release

Awful product. Uses the same name as the official MSDN "ULSViewer", which creates confusion. Useless - shouldn't be on CodePlex.

Very useful, thx. I won't use notepad to view logs anymore.

Not so much features as ms viewer, but works locale independent ... After the October CU of SP ms ulsviewer needs to run under en locale to understand the logs

The Microsoft ULS Viewer is better (more features e.g. real-time logging, better filtering) http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/ULSViewer/

Haven't testing this good enough, but compared to the http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/ULSViewer/ it doesn't looks like it has a lot of the same feature.

I've only used this for about 10 minutes but already it's helping immensely. The interface is very intuitive, simple, and powerful. Thanks Stefan!

Great features. Works intuitively & w/out asking for the obvious (e.g. where to get logs.) Bad: UI could be more responsive; needs indicator of making progress: after d-click on the exe, nothing happened; checked TaskMan to see if it was running. No indicator while loading log file (goes blank.) Good: footprint is tiny; UI clean; needs no install; loads multiple logs at once (awesome). Recommended

Very handy. Would be nice if UI was more responsive.

Great tool, much easier to read the logs than Notepad or Textpad.
