LogViewPlus Add-Ons

Add-Ons are a special class of custom extension developed exclusively by Clearcove. Add-Ons extend LogViewPlus to provide functionality beyond what is available in the standard install.

Unlike other plugin types, LogViewPlus Add-Ons are often specific to a particular task in LogViewPlus. Often the task will be half-implemented in LogViewPlus by default. This gives LogViewPlus the ability to prompt for an add-on if required.

Add-Ons may be used to implement features when one or more of the following criteria are met:

1. The feature is not widely needed.

2. The feature requries additional third-party libraries.

3. The feature adds additional licensing requirements which must be agreed to by the end user.

When an Add-On has been correctly installed, it will be shown in the list of currently loaded plugins with a plugin type of 'Add-On'.

LogViewPlus currently supports two add-ons: ETW and ECC.

ETW Add-On

The ETW Add-On can be used to provide access to provide access to Microsoft ETW event streams. The ETW Add-On was introduced in LogViewPlus v2.5 and is not supported in earlier versions.

To install the ETW Add-On:

1. Download the ETW Add-On

2. Extract the contents of the zip file to the %AppData%\LogViewPlus\Plugins\Etw directory. After the zip file is extracted, the Plugins\Etw directory should contain 24 items (two folders and 22 files).

3. Enable plugins and restart LogViewPlus.

The ETW Add-On requires additional configuration after install. LogViewPlus must be run as an administrator in order to access ETW event streams.

Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) Add-On

The ECC Add-On can be used to provide access to an ECC encryption algorithm (aka, EdDSA or Ed25519) when processing certificates on certain platforms. The ECC Add-On was introduced in LogViewPlus v2.5.7 and is not supported in earlier versions.

To install the ECC Add-On:

1. Download the ECC Add-On

2. Extract the contents of the zip file to the %AppData%\LogViewPlus\Plugins\Ecc directory. After the zip file is extracted, the Plugins\Ecc directory should contain 12 files and no folders.

3. Enable plugins and restart LogViewPlus.

The ECC Add-On does not require any additional configuration after installation.
