Note, you might get initially SmartScreen warnings after downloading the setup file. This is caused by a new certificate that needs to get some "reputation" before it's deemed safe by Microsoft filters.

How to create radiant:// URLs?

The syntax is very similar to the command line arguments -

Sample cmdline to url translations:

radiantviewer.exe -d "folder1" "folder2" "folder3"

radiantviewer.exe -pstv 0020000D ""

radiantviewer.exe -paet MYPACSAETITLE -pstv 00100020 "23874623-PATIENTID"

Have a look at the end of the options.xml file.
The code below will add the "Operators' name" option to the main search field.

<i id="00081070" n="Operators&apos; name" h="Enter operators&apos; name..." la="1" ta="1"/>
<!-- id - DICOM tag id, n - name, h - hint, la - add leading asterisk, ta - add trailing asterisk -->

Just an another function you can add to Radiant is "Exporting JPEG compressed DICOM images". One can also select JPEG compression level. This is very useful function for archiving.

Thank you for your suggestions. Some features get higher priority than others, and the development takes time. We kindly ask for your patience :-)

The message you get is displayed on systems where the licensing module cannot generate the machine ID required for activation.
This problems arises only when the Windows WMI service is not working properly.
Did you try to run RadiAnt as Administrator?
Unless you get this service to work (which can be a complicated procedure), reinstall the operating system or use another computer, you will not be able to install and use RadiAnt.
