Reading RW5 collector files into MicroSurvey?

Post by walmsley » Tue Jun 03, 2008 11:35 am

MicroSurvey 2008 installed - Using Carlson SurvCE which creates a .rw5 file.. We're trying to bring this rw5 file into microsurvey the same way as our previous .raw files. It asks us to create a new traverse database - this is fine.. after that - MS literally crashes.. We have no issues with .raw files at all. Why does MS not like these .rw5 files??

The best way to have us address and examine this is for you to go to our helpdesk and enter in a support ticket. Please attach the RW5 file in question, to the ticket, so we can examine it. There is probably some minor quirk that this file has in comparison to the standard RW5 file. We do follow the TDS standards for reading and writing the raw files. We actually have the standards posted on this web-site: ... itemid=112 Which you can examine if you wish.
