Title: How to open LoTW .ADI files?
Post by: K4PIM on March 27, 2013, 06:10:00 PM
Does anyone know how I can get my Windows 7 PC to open and read the .ADI files containing my logs, that I downloaded from LoTW?
Thanks, Pim, K4PIM

ADI files are merely formatted text files.  View them with notepad.

You can view .ADI files with just about any program that will real text files, but if you edit the file, it MUST be in plain text. If you use a word processing program like Word, you MUST save it as a text file!
