The first beta release of Message Compiler Editor 3 is available here. The main new feature is the support of Unicode message files (version 2.x was still compiled with Delphi 2007). Importing already existing message files is planned for this release but not available yet due to some bugs still needing to be fixed in the parser.
After a long time, I've released a new version of the Message Compiler Editor. This release comes with a setup and a help file. Only minor changes has been made to the editor, now comments are written to the message text file, the options dialog is shown before each compilation, and the OutputBase parameter is now supported. Manifest file are not supported - support is planned for version 3.

The Message Compiler Editor is a small utility to create. manage and compile Windows message files to be used with the Windows event viewer. Creating a message file is s multistep process that requires to write the source message file, compile it with the SDK message compiler (mc.exe), then adding it to a resouce file and compile it. The last step is to add it to an executable (exe or dll) and register it with the event viewer.
Currently CVS comes in two versions: the original CVS (available at http://www.nongnu.org/cvs/), and CVSNT (www.cvsnt.org), originally a native port to Windows systems, but then become a whole project on its own available on many platforms (Windows, Linux, Unix, MacOSX) and with several new features. Both versions share a common architecture, and from now on "CVS" will refer to both versions, but where stated explicitly.
