This release of ELWAVE 5.2 contains the
following features and improvements not found in previous
- German version

- Audible alerts
- Improved setup for Windows NT
- Automatic backup of Metastock 3.51 files
- Fixed bugs
ELWAVE is now available in two languages:
English and German. From our web site, you can choose which
language to download by selecting the appropriate link. Since
this is our first German release, there may be a few places
where the original English text has not been translated into
German. These will mostly be obscure error message that do
not usually occur. If we do find any of these messages you
can be sure they will be translated in the next release.
ELWAVE has been Y2K-compliant since version
1.0, but the data supplied by your data vendor might not.
ELWAVE 5.2 has an automatic Y2K datafix built-in that will
check your data for Y2K integrity and fix it if necessary.
To help you monitor the market more effectively,
we now have included three standard sounds:
- A triggerline alert: trigger.wav
When the market crosses your triggerline,
ELWAVE will alert you by playing
- A trendline alert: trend.wav
If the market hits the trendline, ELWAVE
notifies you by playing the trend.wav
- DDE-disconnect alert: Dde-disc.wav
Should your real time dde-link with
ELWAVE get disconnected, not only
will this show on the top of your chart, but also an
audible alert will be given so that you
can get the feed up and running again as quickly as possible.
You can customize the sounds by using your own
*.wav files. Go to the ELWAVE51 folder and rename your
own *.wav into one of the ELWAVE *.wav files.
The alert can be shut off by simply deleting the *.wav file
in the ELWAVE51 folder.
The installation of ELWAVE for Windows
NT is now as simple as the Windows 95/98 setup. At the press
of a button ELWAVE and the sentinel driver for NT is
installed in seconds.
Note: Always make sure the you are logged
on as an 'administrator', else you might not be authorized
to make certains additions to your system, required for running
ELWAVE properly. Contact your networkadministrator
if you don't have the authorization to make such changes.
Before ELWAVE overwrites an existing
Metastock 3.51 datafile, it will automatically make a backup
of the original datafile. The *.bak file can be found in the
same directory as the original datafile. Should the original
datafile get corrupted, simply change the *.bak into *.dat.
This feature was already available for ASCII-datafiles.
The following bugs have been found in previous
versions, and have now been fixed:
- log10/sing error
- calculation error detected caused by the custom compression
- blank screen when scrolling the chart after an analysis
