This is a re-release of Indihiang (as with a few bug fixes to improve stability.

Please be aware: the program still uses up lots of memory, and is still slow when analysing many logs (I use AWStats to do this instead). I needed something quick-n-easy for looking at individual log files, so thought I'd fix Indihiang just enough to enable me to do this.

If you have any comments, please contact me.


  • The IP-to-country range resolution is optional (disabled by default) during consolidation. To re-enable this, go to the Tools menu and check the option (this will persist between sessions).
  • The database template (dump_indihiang.dat) is distributed alongside the application instead of in the (User Profile Application Data)\Indihiang\Media directory (where the installer usually puts it). If it cannot be found at all, a visible warning (message box) is shown.
  • If the IP-to-country database is missing from the (User Profile Application Data)\Indihiang\Media directory, a visible warning (message box) is shown.

Bug fixes

  • No longer crashes when unable to open a log file already opened (e.g. by IIS). Will keep trying to open file until it succeeds, and sets read-write share flag so another process can still access it.
  • Crash in User Agent control where index is chosen in combobox with no items
  • The IP address parser has been improved to handle compound addresses, such as those created by web server interpretation of X-Forward-For headers (usually by an ISAPI plugin).
  • Only one CPU build is available: x86. This will now work on both 32-bit and 64-bit (x64) Windows.


This is an x86-only build (not packaged in an installer). It will now work on both 32-bit and 64-bit (x64) Windows.

Please note: there are additional files you should install before you run the program. They belong in:

(User Profile Application Data)\Indihiang
  • On Windows Vista/7, this is under:
<Your profile dir>\AppData\Roaming.
  • On WinXP:
<Your profile dir>\Application Data


<Your profile dir>\Local Settings\Application Data

Also, the System.Data.SQLite assembly is not copied to the output directory by default. You must copy the appropriate version of it after the build completes.
