I can get awstats to work just fine when I use just one days log file, but when I use the tool to merege a months worth, I get this message:

Create/Update database for config “./awstats.stats.conf” by AWStats version 6.8 (build 1.910)
From data in log file “C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\LogFiles\\W3SVC491076679\\all.log”…
Phase 1 : First bypass old records, searching new record…
Direct access to last remembered record has fallen on another record.
So searching new records from beginning of log file…
AWStats did not find any valid log lines that match your LogFormat parameter, in the 50th first non commented lines read of your log.
Your log file C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\LogFiles\\W3SVC491076679\\all.log must have a bad format or LogFormat parameter setup does not match this format.
Your AWStats LogFormat parameter is:
This means each line in your web server log file need to have “MSIE Extended W3C log format” like this:
date time c-ip c-username cs-method cs-uri-sterm sc-status sc-bytes cs-version cs(User-Agent) cs(Referer)
And this is an example of records AWStats found in your log file (the record number 50 in your log):
2009-01-02 15:16:55 GET /App_Themes/Office2003+Blue/Grid View/gvCollapsedButton.png – - A049725 HTTP/1.1 Mozilla/4.0+(compatible;+MSIE+6.0;+Windows+NT+5.1;+SV1;+.NET+CLR+ 1.1.4322;+.NET+CLR+2.0.50727) – 401 1872
Setup ('./awstats.stats.conf' file, web server or permissions) may be wrong.
Check config file, permissions and AWStats documentation (in 'docs' directory).

The files are all using the right format????

There are many cases where LogFormat=2  does not work.

Use the right "long" LogFormat definition and the problem will be solved. You can try this one (not sure about the %host  field though) :

LogFormat = "%time2 %method %url %query %logname %host %other %ua %referer %code %bytesd"
