Overview
h2. Overview

Many ClearSCADA drivers contain a protocol translator that can convert raw comms and IO logs into HTML. This utility makes it easy run the appropriate translator for a particular log file from Windows® Explorer. Support of this tool is provided informally via the ClearSCADA Forums.

This requires Microsoft Visual Studio C++ 2015 Redistributable package to be installed. This is installed with the latest version of ClearSCADA, alternatively see this [Microsoft|https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=53587] page.{note}

* \- Copy 'TranslatePicker.exe' onto your PC - suggested folder C:\Utilities
\- Edit 'TranslatePicker.reg' to change the path (both of them) to wherever you copied 'TranslatePicker.exe' to (default is C:\Utilities)
\- Merge 'TranslatePicker.reg' into registry
* Copy 'TranslatePicker.exe' onto your PC - suggested folder c:\Utilities
